At ISC West 2018, SIA presented the 39th annual edition of the SIA New Product Showcase.
Since its inception in 1979, SIA NPS has been the security industry’s premier awards-based marketing program.
The 2018 New Product Showcase program had 122 entries from small, medium-sized and large companies in the security industry – a record for entrants in recent years.
IPConfigure took top honors in 2018, with its Orchid Core VMS Axis Camera Application Platform winning Best New Product.
The Orchid Core VMS “provides local and remote access to live and recorded video through an intuitive Web browser interface, with the same user experience on both workstations and mobile devices. In addition, each Axis Communications network cameras and video encoder equipped with an ARTPEC-6 processor can now host Orchid Core VMS’ recording engine, database, video storage, and an encrypted Web browser interface for live viewing, search, and video playback functions. While Orchid Core VMS runs as a self-contained application on Axis cameras, it also supports federating with Orchid Fusion and Orchid Fusion Cloud for enterprise deployments with unlimited cameras, users, and locations via a unified user interface.”
“The SIA New Product Showcase challenges our industry’s solutions developers to create and deliver exceptional security offerings, and this year we saw many new entrants competing in the showcase,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “It’s always a highly competitive program, and I congratulate IPConfigure for distinguishing itself by winning Best New Product overall – particularly notable considering the high number of entrants.”
The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Allegion for its Von Duprin Remote Undogging and Monitoring Kit. According to Allegion, the product allows remote undogging (locking) of mechanical exit devices – commonly found on secondary perimeter openings in many institutions. The Von Duprin RU retrofit kit for exit devices is billed as “a cost-effective solution for these secondary openings that enables remote undogging for centralized lock down and door status monitoring.”
The New Product Showcase judges presented awards in 29 product and service categories.
