CrucialTrak Wins Top Honors in ISC West New Product Showcase

April 19, 2017

CrucialTrak recently partnered with CBC America to bring its Biometric Access Control System (BACS) to the security market. Just a few weeks later, the product has earned top honors as Best New Product in the SIA New Product Showcase (NPS) at ISC West 2017, April 6. The touchless all-in-one multi-biometric access control system combines four biometric modalities - simultaneous touchless fingerprint recognition and palm vein recognition, 2D/3D matching face recognition and iris recognition - into a single terminal.

According to CrucialTrak, the use of Multi-Biometrics takes advantage of the capabilities of each biometric technology while overcoming the limitations of a single technology.    Most analysts and companies involved in the biometrics market see a great potential that Multi-Biometrics products will become more prevalent in the near future.

“Many returning companies entered the SIA New Product Showcase this year, and many new entrants also competed in the showcase,” Security Industry Association CEO Don Erickson said in a statement. “New and familiar faces did very well in the 2017 showcase. I congratulate CrucialTrak for distinguishing itself as Best New Product overall in a very competitive year.”

In all, this year's NPS Program had 120 entries, a record for entrants in recent years.
