EF Johnson Technologies announced that JVCKENWOOD won the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022 in the product category.

The prize was awarded for the Viking VP8000 multiband portable radio, the latest addition to the KENWOOD Viking P25 digital radio portfolio developed by EFJohnson. The win marks the fourth consecutive year JVCKENWOOD products have received the award.

The Viking VP8000 is a P25 digital radio poised to become the flagship model of the KENWOOD Viking P25 radio series for the North American public-safety market. It is the latest JVCKENWOOD mission-critical radio to support the VHF, UHF and 700/800 MHz frequency bands in a single multiband radio. The radio offers a robust feature set, reliability, loud audio with excellent sound quality for mission-critical operations, and excellent usability based on the high-contrast, multi-line display and gloved grip design. The VP8000 model lineup includes full and standard keypad models with options for black or high-visibility green housing colors.

The iF DESIGN AWARD is organized by iF International Forum Design, the oldest independent design organization in the world. Founded in 1953 in Germany, iF Design has become a global symbol of excellent design and its social significance. Submissions are awarded based on nine disciplines, including product, packaging, communication and architecture. Entries undergo independent jury examination based on the criteria of an idea, impact, differentiation, form, and function. In the 2022 competition, award winners in each category were selected from a record 11,000 entries submitted from 57 countries and regions after a thorough examination by a jury consisting of renowned design experts.

"We are incredibly proud of this accomplishment,” said EF Johnson CEO Duane Anderson. “This award validates our Company's mission of providing innovative, turnkey communication solutions for today and the future. The VP8000 has set the standard with an award-winning functional design, and it's our privilege to introduce this radio to our nation's first responders."
