Ian Johnston of Innovative Security Design accepts the 2013 Best New Product Award from SIA’s Rand Price.


The Lynx from Innovative Security Design took the top honor yesterday in the Security Industry Association’s 2013 New Product Showcase (NPS), winning the Best New Product Award.

Described as the world’s first edge computing platform for video surveillance to run Microsoft Embedded Windows, Lynx is not only a camera, but also a computing platform that integrates the Microsoft technology stack. Lynx delivers HD megapixel multi-streaming 1080p 30FPS broadcast-quality video encased in a fully integrated

IP66-rated dome enclosure.

The Judges’ Choice Award went to 3M Cogent for its MiY-Touch indoor biometric touchscreen, one of the fastest, lightest and most compact access control readers in its class.

“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 Innovative Security

Design and 3M Cogent on their wins 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 84 entries from 66 companies. In addition to the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice honors, awards were presented in 21 product and service categories. NPS judges also presented seven honorable mention awards.

Representatives from both Innovative Security Design and 3M Cogent will speak at the NPS Winner’s Forum at 10 a.m. today in Rooms 301 and 302, with a Q&A session to follow.
