Innovative Security Design takes top prize Contact:

The Lynx from Innovative Security Design took the top honor at the Security Industry Associations 2013 New Product Showcase (NPS), winning the coveted Best New Product Award at ISC West on Wednesday.

Lynx is described as the world’s first edge computing platform for video surveillance to run Microsoft Embedded Windows. It is not only a camera but also a computing platform that fully integrates the Microsoft technology stack. Lynx delivers the complete package including HD megapixel multi-streaming 1080P30 broadcast quality video encased in a fully integrated IP66 dome enclosure.

3M Cogent took the Judges Choice Award for their MiY-Touch indoor biometric touch screen. The MiY-Touch indoor biometric touch-screen access control reader is compact, fast, and one of the lightest readers in its class.

Each year, the companies competing in SIAs New Product Showcase at ISC West present the leading-edge security solutions that are shaping the industry said SIA CEO, Don Erickson. These new technologies and solutions are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward, and I congratulate Innovative Security Design and 3M Cogent on their wins at this years NPS.
