March 28, 2012, LAS VEGAS – MorphoAccess VP from MorphoTrak Inc. took the top honor at the Security Industry Association's 2012 New Product Showcase (NPS), winning the coveted Best New Product Award at the NPS awards ceremony at ISC West on Wednesday.
MorphoAccess VP is a physical access control reader that integrates multimodal finger vein and fingerprint biometric technology into a single sensor and device, thus reducing installation costs, while increasing security levels.
The Siqura BC620WDR from TKH Security Solutions took the Judges' Choice Award, which is given for the product or service that, in the opinion of the judges, deserves recognition for its unique approach to a security solution. The Siqura BC620WDR is a network box camera that provides superior performance and wide dynamic range under all lighting conditions.
"The NPS program recognizes products that meet a previously unmet need, and judges saw that in MorphoTrak Inc.'s MorphoAccess® VP," said SIA NPS Chair Jennifer Martin of Pixim. "It's this kind of innovation that exemplifies what the New Product Showcase is all about."
"The Siqura BC620WDR from TKH Security Solutions, which won the Judges' Choice Award, is a great example of bringing innovation to the marketplace," Martin added.
