Motorola Solutions has claimed four awards at Australia’s international design awards, Good Design Australia.

The company earned the awards for its next generation of mission critical solutions in video and voice communications.

Two of the awards went to Motorola Solutions’ APX NEXT, purpose built smart radio designed for emergency services and first responders that will be launched in Australia and New Zealand in late 2020.

Another award went to the WM500 WIRELESS PoC REMOTE SPEAKER MICROPHONE, which collaborates with a smartphone to provide push-to-talk (PTT) communication over cellular.

The H5M Outdoor Dome camera also won an award. The camera provides a budget-conscious video surveillance installation for tough environmental conditions while offering advanced video analytics through artificial intelligence (AI) technology for faster response times and simple installation.

Vice president for Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, Con Balaskas, said the four awards collectively represented the company’s strengths in mission critical communications as well as its rapidly expanding capabilities in video security.

“Winning four Good Design Awards is certainly an honour. Even more importantly, it provides validation that our approach to innovation is helping to deliver valuable new technologies for enterprise and public safety organisations,” Balaskas said.

“Motorola Solutions will continue to continue to direct its research and development investments towards developing the best voice communication, video and software solutions for industry,” he said.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions, with 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international awards for design and innovation, dating back to 1958. The awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia, commented: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”

“There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” he added.
