IPConfigure took home top honours as Best in Show and won Best New Product for its Orchid Core VMS for AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP) in the SIA New Product Showcase (NPS) at ISC West 2018, announced the Security Industry Association (SIA).
The Orchid Core VMS “provides local and remote access to live and recorded video through an intuitive web browser interface, with the same user experience on both workstations and mobile devices. In addition, each Axis Communications network camera and video encoder equipped with an ARTPEC-6 processor can now host Orchid Core VMS’ recording engine, database, video storage and an encrypted web browser interface for live viewing, search and video playback functions.”
The product runs as a self-contained application on Axis cameras, but also supports federating with Orchid Fusion and Orchid Fusion Cloud for enterprise deployments with unlimited cameras, users and locations via a unified user interface, says the company.
“The SIA New Product Showcase challenges our industry’s solutions developers to create and deliver exceptional security offerings, and this year we saw many new entrants competing in the showcase,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “It’s always a highly competitive program, and I congratulate IPConfigure for distinguishing itself by winning Best New Product overall — particularly notable considering the high number of entrants.”
This year, SIA NPS received 122 entries with technologies covering 29 categories, a record for entrants in recent years.
Additionally, Allegion was awarded the Judges’ Choice Award for its Von Duprin Remote Undogging and Monitoring Kit. According to Allegion, the product allows remote undogging (locking) of mechanical exit devices, commonly found on secondary perimeter openings in many institutions.
