ViewScan 2.0 from IPVideo Corporation Wins 2021 Safety and Security Best New Metal Detection Product Awards for K12 and Higher Education

Bay Shore, NY | June 24, 2021: IPVideo Corporation, announced today that the new screening features for their ViewScan 2.0 have earned dual 2021 Platinum new product awards from Spaces4Learning for the best Safety and Security Metal Detection in both K-12 and Higher Education. 

Spaces4Learning, a leading publication for education institutions, the architectural community, service providers, and others interested in creating high-quality facilities today announced ViewScan 2.0 the winner of its 2021 New Product Awards for Safety and Security for both K-12 and Higher Education for metal detection allowing for greater school security screening flexibility and faster processing.

ViewScan, the concealed weapons detection, and loss prevention system by IPVideo Corporation has been updated with version 2.0 allowing for greater flexibility and faster processing with weapons and loss prevention screening.  ViewScan 2.0 comes with all-new features and updates, such as an updated new browser, optional mobile trolley, an improved camera, enhanced cybersecurity and reporting, as well as additional capabilities for 3rd party integration. What stands out the most about ViewScan compared to other concealed weapon detection systems is that it detects disturbances in the earth’s electromagnetic field, making this a safe passive system for all that go through it without emitting radiation or affecting medical devices.  All non-ferrous weaponry and theft items can be detected whether they are concealed in the body or belongings.

With the new ViewScan 2.0 interface, you can capture the three most current screens, conduct remote monitoring, as well as view up to five simultaneous ViewScan systems per window.  These improvements allow for greater flexibility and a faster screening process in school campus environments.

The ViewScan 2.0 system now includes a trolley option allowing for easier mobility and flexibility of use. This can be particularly useful for school facilities utilizing ViewScan at events where the system would temporarily need to be placed. Along with the mobile trolley, add-on battery options are available for extra power when using it on the go.

Additional updated technology features for the ViewScan 2.0 system include a higher resolution camera that provides easier alignment procedures and enhanced cybersecurity procedures that meet California IoT Security Civil Code Section 1798.91.04, as well as enhanced reporting capabilities for event data and anomalies. The ViewScan 2.0 also allows for connections to 3rd party systems, such as access controls, VMS systems, turnstiles, facial recognition cameras, other cameras, and IPVideo Corporation’s own HALO Smart Sensor.

“These new features are a game-changer for school environments which want an effective screening solution that eliminates security lines,” states David Antar, President of IPVideo Corporation. “We are constantly looking to bring new features to better protect our schools and I am very pleased that we were able to include these great new safety and technical features at no additional cost to our educational customers.”

The New Product Award program honors the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to enhance the learning environment.  “This has been a difficult time for educational institutions, but the manufacturers and suppliers that serve this sector have really stepped up with great solutions to help ease the burden for schools, colleges, and universities facing the challenges of reopening or remaining open amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said David Nagel, editorial director of Spaces4Learning. “Spaces4Learning congratulates all of our winners on their important contributions.”

A panel of judges from the industry selected ViewScan 2.0 as a Platinum winner for both K12 and Higher Education  Safety and Security Metal Detection in the seventh year of this contest.
