IPVideo’s ViewScan 2.0 Wins Two ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards for Best Metal/Weapons Solution and Best Cell Phone Detection Solution

BAY SHORE, N.Y. | December 3, 2021: IPVideo Corporation’s ViewScan 2.0 concealed weapons detection and loss prevention system has won two ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards from American Security Today in two categories: Best Metal/Weapons Solution and Best Cell Phone Detection Solution. ViewScan has been recognized for its new version 2.0, bringing greater flexibility and faster processing with weapons and loss prevention screening. 

With ViewScan 2.0, all non-ferrous weaponry and items, including cell phones, can be detected whether they are concealed in the body or inside belongings. The cell phone detection is critically important for facilities trying to prevent communications and photography of valuable information and infrastructure.

“We are humbled by the two awards for ViewScan 2.0 and recognition by the ‘ASTORS’ program judges,” said Jack Plunkett, CTO of IPVideo Corporation. “With ViewScan 2.0,  we are helping high security conscious organizations with a safe and cost-effective solution that combats both physical threats and threats of criminality and espionage.” 

ViewScan 2.0 comes with all-new features and updates, such as an updated browser, an optional mobile trolley, an improved camera, enhanced cybersecurity and reporting, as well as additional capabilities for 3rd party integration. What differentiates ViewScan from other concealed weapons detection systems is that it detects disturbances in the earth’s electromagnetic field without emitting radiation or affecting medical devices, making it a safe passive system for all who walk through it.

The latest ViewScan 2.0 interface allows users to capture the three most current screens, conduct remote monitoring, as well as view up to five simultaneous ViewScan systems per window. These improvements offer more flexibility and a quicker screening process.

The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards, now in its sixth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today. 

“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” said AST’s Publisher, Michael J. Madsen.

ViewScan is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.
