KENNESAW, GA, April 15, 2021 – j5create has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. The international jury has awarded both the 360° All Around Webcam and Dual HDMI™ Video Capture the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.
Revolutionary 360° Webcam is recognized for product design
The 360° All Around Webcam changes the way businesses operate by enhancing the way conferencing is done. Whether you’re capturing a 360° panoramic view of the room or focusing on specific presenters with the various display modes, the webcam optimizes conference calls with HD video and built-in omnidirectional audio.
In addition to the wide field of view that the 360° video camera delivers, the versatile display modes provide a flexible and effective virtual meeting solution for telecommuting, distance education, and more.
Unique design of Dual HDMI™ Video Capture opens up possibilities for content creators
The Dual HDMI™ Video Capture was designed for videographers, broadcasters, journalists, and content creators to live stream nearly everything, from education and training to live performances, business presentations, and more.
With the Dual HDMI™ Video Capture, users can record and stream HD video content from two channels at the same time while customizing their streaming layout with various screen configurations including picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture, and mixing functions—all from a single device. The video capture also features a Chroma Key application allowing users to easily use the green screen effect on videos.
Red Dot CEO Professor Dr. Peter Zec on the laureates

The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognizes the best products for a given year. The roughly 50 jurors were once again true to the motto “In search of good design and innovation” in the 2021 competition. The international panel of experts comprises specialists from a wide variety of sectors. They scrutinized the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics, and longevity.
