CHICAGO, IL | Sept. 3, 2019: IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of IP-based video surveillance, audio/video recording, passive visual weapons detection systems and IOT sensor technology, has been selected as the winner as the 2019 Most Innovative Detection/Deterrent Technology product by ASIS for their ViewScan Passive Weapons Detection system at the Global Security Exchange (GSX).
ViewScan is the safest and fastest concealed weapons detection system on the market. This completely passive system does not emit radiation, is safe for pregnant women, children and those with medical devices. Removal of precious metal jewelry is not required. The visual detection of threat objects eliminates unnecessary pat-downs and infringement of privacies as it shows a pinpoint of the location of the hidden objects.
Every person safely passing through the portal is scanned and can be archived with the following data: snapshot image of the person, date and time, threshold settings, sensor readings, and graphical display. Archiving allows for admissible evidence of the breach and can be controlled at the workstation with the flexibility to monitor anyone entering or leaving a building, including after hours. The units do not require calibration and are portable with a set up time under 20 minutes.
ASIS International, the leading organization for security management professionals worldwide, invited exhibiting companies to enter the 2019 Innovative Product Awards (IPA)-a competition recognizing the most groundbreaking offerings on the Global Security Exchange (GSX) expo floor. Winners have been announced and will be recognized at GSX on September 11th at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, with more than 20,000 security professionals from 100+ countries in attendance.
“Developing a new security solution or service can be a difficult challenge, and as such we are excited to highlight the dedication, expertise and sheer hard work of our deserving winners,” said Ronald Lander, chief specialist, Ultrasafe Security Solutions, and co-chair, ASIS IPA Committee. “This year’s competition was the closest in the 11-year history of this competition, with contributions from several new security sectors. We congratulate all honorees and look forward to showcasing each winning solution at GSX this year.”
“We are excited that ViewScan will provide a safer and faster alternative for guests going through security screenings.” IPVideo Corporation President, David Antar stated about ViewScan. “ViewScan will be on full display at GSX booth 2176 and is a must see for those attending the show.”
The IPAs spotlight the leading products-hardware, software, testing materials, practices or thought leadership-designed to tackle current and emerging global security risks and threats. A team of judges representing security practitioners, thought leaders, and industry experts selected ViewScan based on the level of innovation, unique attributes, and specific benefit to the security industry.
