MorphoWAVE from Safran Morpho Named Best New Product at SIA’s 2015 New Product Showcase

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to IC Realtime for its IC720 360×360 Video Surveillance Camera product.

Las Vegas, Nev. — MorphoWAVE from Safran Morpho took the top honor at the Security Industry Association’s 2015 New Product Showcase (NPS), winning the coveted Best New Product Award at the NPS awards ceremony at ISC West on Wednesday.

MorphoWave is the market’s first biometric access solution featuring high-speed touchless fingerprint matching. MorphoWave captures and matches four fingerprints with a single wave of the hand, for an efficient and comfortable user experience, according to Safran Morpho.

Users simply wave a hand over the MorphoWave sensor to be identified. Because the sensor is touchless, the surface remains clean through repeated scans. It reads wet and dry fingerprints without difficulty, which is a supporting factor in its very fast and highly accurate capture and matching rate.

“Each year, the companies competing in SIA’s 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 Safran Morpho on their win at this year’s NPS.”

Since its inception in 1979, the NPS has been the security industry’s premier awards-based marketing program. This year’s NPS Program had 110 entries from 88 companies.

In addition, the Judges’ Choice Award was presented to IC Realtime for its IC720 360×360 Video Surveillance Camera product. The NPS judges presented awards in 25 product and service categories, and they also presented six honorable mention awards in six categories. The Award Winner’s List appears below, and it also will be posted on the SIA NPS website at http://www.sianps.com.
