The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and Boating Writers International (BWI) recently announced the winners of the 2017 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show Innovation Awards, presented during the annual Industry Breakfast at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The Innovation Awards recognize products that best meet the following criteria: innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured; benefit to the marine industry and/or consumer; practicality; and cost-effectiveness.
The Raymarine Axiom family of MFDs feature lifelike imagery behind Raymarine’s exclusive RealVision™ 3D for superior underwater fish and structure identification from one transducer, no black box required. The new rugged, all-glass touch screens are available in 7-, 9-, 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 personalize. 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.”
