WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ISCON Imaging Inc., a manufacturer of patented infrared (IR) imaging screening systems, today announced that it has been honored as a finalist in two highly regarded award programs. ISCON is a finalist in the Security Management category in the GIT Security Awards for the SecureScan™ and has been named as a finalist for the FocusScan™ in the 2015 Retail Fraud Awards.
The Retail Fraud Awards recognize the best and most innovative technologies used in retail fraud and loss prevention applications to protect people and assets, while driving new levels of value to users. A panel of expert judges selected FocusScan, a fully portable, handheld IR imaging solution for remote and random screening applications, for its ability to help retailers identify loss and protect assets.
Each year, the GIT Security Awards honors 10 products from a wide variety of technology categories including security management, perimeter protection, video surveillance and industrial safety. SecureScan was selected as a finalist for its ability to conduct rapid whole-body security scans while allowing users to detect stolen goods or weapons without privacy or health concerns. The awards are presented by PROTECTOR Magazine, a leading global security trade publication.
ISCON’s screening technologies are designed to help eliminate theft, ensure security and reduce workplace violence. Both FocusScan and SecureScan conduct rapid screening of individuals and display high-resolution images on an advanced, easy-to-operate touchscreen interface. Captured images are marked with a date and time stamp for establishing probable cause, and can be uploaded or downloaded for internal use or shared with law enforcement if needed. Unlike competing technologies, ISCON’s infrared technology detects all types of material that can be concealed under clothing, such as explosives, narcotics, wood, ceramics, metals, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, rubber and more. It does not utilize radiation of any kind and does not violate the subject’s privacy.
“Being selected as a finalist in these well-known award programs demonstrates the innovation and power of ISCON’s technology, which is 100% safe for users while ensuring rapid detection of threats in a wide variety of environments,” said Bill Gately, CEO, ISCON Imaging. “We continue to receive accolades for our solutions from the industry as well as our customers who have experienced positive results from the deployment of our technologies in mission-critical environments.”
The award-winning screening solutions from ISCON leverage patented thermo-conductive infrared technology, which combines infrared and heat transfer for high-resolution imaging without radiation. ISCON IR scanning solutions are currently deployed in border protection, homeland security, retail loss prevention, critical infrastructure and transportation environments. Mobile solutions are also available.
