The Security Industry Association (SIA) tells Security Magazine that the NoblePeak Vision TriWave Camera has won the 2008 NPS Innovation Award at SIA's New Product Showcase (NPS), April 2, 2008 in Las Vegas. More than 100 new products and technologies vied for top honors at the annual awards program honoring excellence in security product design.

"It is truly a break-through product," said Shayne Bates, principal of Security Consulting for Koffel Associates and 2008 NPS judge. "NoblePeak has applied science to solve the scientific problem of how light is used at night. This product has the potential to change how we see and use cameras in a range of facilities and conditions."

The judging began on Tuesday with 19 judges, representing various segments of the industry, overseeing a day long series of presentations by product manufacturers. Once completed, the judges determined category winners and then ultimately the "Best in Show" award.

"Heading into our 30th year, New Product Showcase continues to be a win-win for ISC West attendees and exhibitors," said Richard Chace, executive director and CEO, The Security Industry Association. "By showcasing only the most innovative new security solutions, it provides a one-stop shop for buyers and influencers looking for the latest in product innovation. It also provides terrific exposure for exhibitors' new products and services."
