Raymarine has won the Innovation Award at the Miami International Boat Show for the second year in a row.
The Raymarine Axiom Multi-Function Display (MFD) – exclusively previewed in the last Angling International Communiqué ONLINE – has won the Innovation Award at the Miami International Boat Show.
It represents a double for Raymarine/FLIR Maritime, which won the 2016 prize for the FLIR AX8 Marine Thermal Monitoring System.
The Axiom MFD enjoyed a rapturous global launch at the Miami and Helsinki boat shows two weeks ago and was voted a winner at the US event by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Boating Writers International (BWI) during the 2017 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show’s annual Industry Breakfast.
The Raymarine Axiom family of MFDs feature lifelike imagery behind its exclusive RealVision™ 3D for superior underwater fish and structure identification from one transducer. No black box is needed.
The new all-glass touch screens are available in seven, nine and 12-inch display sizes and come pre-installed with Raymarine’s new LightHouse 3 operating system. Combined with Axiom’s fast quad core processor, LightHouse 3 delivers an intuitive and powerful navigation experience through a redesigned interface that is easy to personalise.
Used in tandem with a FLIR Maritime M100/M200 Series marine thermal camera, Raymarine Axiom users benefit from exclusive FLIR ClearCruise™ thermal video analytics technology to actively monitor the scene and provide alerts when any non-water objects enter the camera’s field of view.
“We are thrilled to bring Raymarine Axiom and its host of exciting technologies to the recreational boating market,” said Grégoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR’s Maritime segment. “With simplified operation, unique 3D sonar and our advanced ClearCruise object identification technology, users see more, know more and operate more safely on the water.”
