“The electronics category of the Innovation Awards is difficult to judge, with incredible technology presented to our panel each year,” said Zuzana Prochazka, chair of the Innovation Awards and board member of Boating Writers International. “This year the Aurora really impressed us with its feature set including full color nighttime capabilities. The size, weight and versatility of this unique camera won in what is always a hotly-contested category.”

Designed for mariners and an active outdoor lifestyle, the Aurora  is the only HD action video camera with true day and night color imaging. At just under eight ounces, it’s small and lightweight. The camera is capable of capturing still, burst and 720p video with an integrated HD OLED display for real-time color night vision.

“We’re delighted that the Aurora has enjoyed an enthusiastic reception by the marine industry,” said SiOnyx CEO Stephen Saylor. “As an active mariner, I’ve experienced firsthand the need for vision assistance while navigating active water ways. Aurora enables boaters running at night to identify navigation markers, explore dark anchorages, and imperatively, spot small water craft operating without illumination. With the Aurora, the fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down.”

Now retailing at just $799, the Aurora is based on SiOnyx’s Ultra Low Light technology that was previously only available in night vision devices costing thousands of dollars. It is IP67 water resistant, as well as GPS-, digital compass-, and WiFi-enabled. Free companion apps on iOS™ and Android ® enable real-time navigation or the ability to control the Aurora directly from a smartphone.

The Innovation Awards are judged by the Boating Writers International (BWI) and managed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). The 2019 award winners were announced by BWI at the Innovation Awards breakfast, held February 15 as a part of the Miami International Boat Show.
