SIA Honors NPS Winners; VMS Provider Chosen for ‘Best in Show’

Christopher Uiterwyk and Cort Tompkins of IPConfigure accept the 2018 SIA New Product Showcase (NPS) Best New Product Award.

LAS VEGAS — IPConfigure’s Orchid Core VMS for Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP) took home top honors as Best New Product in the SIA New Product Showcase (NPS) at ISC West 2018, presented by the Security Industry Association (SIA).

The SIA New Product Showcase received 122 entries from vendors of all sizes in 2018 — besting the previous record from 2017 — with technologies covering 29 product and service categories.

The Orchid Core VMS is said to provide 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 cameras 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.


While Orchid Core VMS runs as a self-contained application on Axis cameras, it also supports federating with Orchid Fusion and Orchid Fusion Cloud for enterprise deployments with unlimited cameras, users, and locations via a unified user interface.”

“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,” says 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.”

The Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Allegion 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. The Von Duprin RU retrofit kit for exit devices is billed as “a cost-effective solution for these secondary openings that enables remote undogging for centralized lock down and door status monitoring.”
