Press Release 11 March 2020
Regensburg, 11 March 2020 – The "Panomera® W" camera system from Dallmeier electronic has won this year's iF DESIGN AWARD. The Panomera® W series and the Mountera® mounting system convinced the 78 members of the independent, international jury of experts to choose the innovative combination of design and technology instead of more than 7000 rivals. Consequently, they now number among the very exclusive list of winners in the "Product" category.
Panomera® W Series impresses expert jury on every level
The innovative design of the Panomera® W series is inspired by the guiding principle of "form following function": The design reflects not only the arrangement of the sensors and the materials used, but also a unity of the style. The high quality of the materials used betokens durability and investment protection. Yet the housing of the camera is up to 95 % recyclable. This year, the innovative camera system impressed the expert jury in many different categories, for example in terms of innovation, functionality, quality of design, but also with regard to target group orientation and environmental responsibility. With the latest generation of the Panomera® series, Dallmeier is first manufacturer in the B2B video security technology sector to implement a uniform design language. Whether on the casino floor or in safe city applications, at the airport terminal, in industry or logistics: The simple design of the Panomera® allows it to be integrated unobtrusively in an enormous variety of architectonic environments while keeping the focus unerringly on the user and his requirements.
One Allen key for an entire system – the advantage of Mountera®
And the innovative "Mountera®" packaging and mounting concept was also recognised with an award: Installers and service personnel benefit from short implementation times and smart solutions of detail. Even the packing is designed to enable convenient handling at the installation site: The system can be taken out of its packaging more quickly with the aid of a single-use handle, while a foams sleeve protects the delicate plastic bubble from damage when it is set down and carried from one place to another. A further feature of the mounting system, which Dallmeier has developed just like the new Panomera® generation with the five-time iF DESIGN AWARD winner "Imago Design": Installers can carry out the entire installation and all adjustments using just one Allen key size. Additionally, Mountera® offers a modular implementation principle with a range of different brackets for flexible mounting options. The Mountera® "Quick Lock" system also enables rapid mounting by a single operative and alternating use of the same camera system at different locations.
Future usability and cost-efficiency on all levels
Besides its innovative design, the Panomera® W series is also notable for its cost-efficiency. Technical innovations and the small number of cameras needed help to realise significant cost savings in all important aspects of implementation and operation. And advantages are created for everyone involved: Even as early as the planning phase, the minimum resolution of the "Panomera® W series" can be defined precisely. This guarantees that already today the security and video analysis standards of the future will be satisfied. At the same time, those who watch the budget benefit from minimal infrastructure expenses and maximum operator efficiency: With Panomera®, one operator can cover an area with way less screens than with conventional systems. Furthermore, multiple operators are able to monitor large expanses independently of each other through one camera system. And even when multiple operators use high-resolution zooms, the total overview image is retained – both live and in the recording. This means that all important information is kept and any situation is under control at any time. In combination with the latest generation of chips, which are already equipped with integrated neural networks, and with various Dallmeier AI applications, the Panomera® W series also enables extensive video analyses for a wide variety of operational situations.
