BAY SHORE, NY | APRIL 15, 2019: The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named ViewScan Passive Weapons Detection System as the 2019 Best Anti-Terrorism/Force Prevention New Product Award winner at the 2019 SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program at ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions.
IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of audio/video recording, passive weapons detection systems and IOT sensor technology, was selected as a 2019 winner of the Best Anti-Terrorism/Force Prevention New Product Award for its ViewScan Passive Weapons Detection System at ISC West, the nation’s largest converged security trade show, on April 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
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, 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 set up time under 20 minutes.
An industry panel of experts from the Security Industry Association recognized the ViewScan as an outstanding access control device. Judging the product on level of innovation, value, fulfilling a market void, improvement over current market offerings and on its strength of features and functionality.
