And the New Product Showcase Winners Are...

March 29 was a celebratory day in Las Vegas for 28 winners of the 33rd Annual Security Industry Association’s (SIA) New Product Showcase (NPS) Awards. The top winners spoke at the “New Product Showcase Winners’ Forum: Brining Innovation to the Forefront.”

All 2012 winners were announced on Wednesday, March 28, 2012, as the ISC West exhibition kicked off with a marching band and recognition of the security industry’s best product picks of the year, which was announced later in the afternoon. Out of 70 entries, TKH Security Solutions received the “Judges’ Choice Award” and MorphoTrak was awarded “Best New Product.” Representatives on behalf of both organizations spoke about the award-winning products.

Jennifer Martin, chair of the SIA NPS Committee acted as moderator for the session dedicated to the winners. Martin provided a bit of history behind SIA dating back to its formation in 1978. She insists that the program is to remain innovative and relevant to the security industry with judging done by people highly qualified to (voluntarily) assess the qualifications of product entries – this year all judges had more than 500 years of experience between them.

“We’re looking for technology, product value and innovation,” Martin said.

Five honorable mention awards accompanied the usual 23 Best New Product and Judges’ Choice Awards from the judges.
