Fusion is pleased to announce that the Apollo RA770 has won a Pittman Innovation Award in the Electronics category!
This latest award follows on a successful launch resulting in wins in a NMEA Product of Excellence Award in the category of Multimedia Entertainment, a NMMA Innovation Award in the Entertainment category at the 2018 International Boatbuilder’s Exhibition & Conference (IBEX), and a honorable mention in the DAME Design Award in the category of Marine Electronics.
The annual Pittman Innovation Awards recognize the most innovative new products for the Sailboat market. Award winners are selected by a team of Sail Magazine editors in four categories – Safety & Racing, Cruising, Electronics, and Systems.
The Fusion Apollo RA770 is the flagship product for the new Apollo Series, epitomizing creative design and technological brilliance. It is the world’s first purpose-built marine entertainment system with a full-color, one-piece glass touchscreen LCD display, built-in Wi-Fi streaming, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology and PartyBusTM capabilities.
The RA770 takes marine audio entertainment to the next level. Users can simply tap to pause/play, or swipe through a playlist to find their favorite song. The stylish display blends perfectly with modern glass helms and is an attractive addition to any steering station.
“We are very pleased with the reception that the Apollo Series has received in the industry,” said Chris Baird, Managing Director of Fusion Entertainment. “Our design team has dedicated themselves to re-inventing marine audio entertainment culminating in the recent release of the Apollo RA770. Since being announced, the RA770 has been recognized by the media and award judges and enjoyed by our customers. We are very grateful for this honor.”
Excellent work, team!
