Yes, we did it again! After winning Red Dot awards in 2011 (for the OL series rear-projection video walls) and 2014 (OBLX free-standing video wall), Barco UniSee's ground-breaking design is now lauded with a Best of the Best awards - the highest accolade in the competition. This is another great recognition for Barco's design and innovation excellence. We want to congratulate the entire team that made this possible!
The Red Dot Award: Product Design has roots dating back as far as 1955 and determines the best products created each year. In 2018, designers and manufacturers from 59 countries submitted more than 6,300 objects – which were launched the year before – to the competition. The jury, comprising 40 top designers from all over the world, was extremely excited about Barco UniSee's ground-breaking design and awarded it with the Best of the Best distinction. As only 1% of the entries received this highest accolade, it is an extremely tough award to win and we are duly proud that we have done it again!
The Barco UniSee platform, launched in October 2017, revolutionized the LCD video wall experience. Aiming to eliminate the existing flaws with traditional LCD video walls, Barco UniSee features a barely visible inter-screen gap, a superb image quality, a longer lifetime and easier installation and maintenance. All while keeping the existing advantages that LCD video walls have as well. To reach this goal, the Barco designers looked at every aspect of LCD video walls, and redesigned it to perfection.
The winners will be celebrated at the Red Dot Gala on 9 July 2018 at Essen’s opera house, during the award ceremony. Afterwards, all the award-winning innovations will be featured in the special exhibition ‘Design on Stage – Winners Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018’ in Essen, for a four-week period. In addition, they can be found in the Online Exhibition, the Red Dot App, and on the Red Dot 21 website from that date.
