Cutting-edge products awarded at the 2017 Security Gala Dinner

Leading security product and service suppliers including FLIR Systems, Hikvision and Inner Range are showcasing their latest solutions at this week’s Security Exhibition & Conference to a record visiting audience of industry professionals.

Taking place at the new International Convention Centre Sydney, open until 3:30pm on Friday 28 July, the 32nd annual edition of the event has returned to Sydney after a three-year absence and the atmosphere has been electric.

The “2017 Security Best New Products Awards”, sponsored by Sony, are a celebration of the most innovative products to hit the Australian market in the last 12 months. Products were judged on originality, impact of innovation, measurability of the benefits, and applicability to the Australian market by a panel of leading security experts including General Manager of ASIAL, John Fleming and Editor of Security Solutions Magazine, John Bigelow among others.

Dahua Technology, one of the world’s largest providers of video surveillance products and services, took out this year’s Best New Product Award from over 50 entries. The Dahua NVR5224-24P-4KS2 is a 24 Channel NVR capable of transmitting over cable distances of up to 800m between the camera and NVR which is a huge increase in distance when compared to the current 100m limitation that traditional IP networks have.

1st Runner Up was awarded to Avigilon for their Appearance Search™ technology, a sophisticated deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine technology. Appearance Search™ sorts through hours of footage with ease, to quickly locate specific people and vehicles across an entire site.

2nd Runner Up was awarded to Amaryllo International’s ATOM AR3S, the world’s first professional IP66 certified outdoor robot. The ATOM AR3S recognises faces as well as deciphering military-grade 256-bit encryption. The AR3S is also fast to set up as it can be powered from a standard Edison light bulb socket.

The standard of entries for this year’s awards was second to none, making the judging decision harder than ever and therefore a special mention goes out to all entries. The awards were announced last night (Thursday 27 July) at Doltone House in Sydney’s Jones Bay Wharf as part of the annual Security Gala Dinner. The dinner runs alongside the Security Exhibition & Conference and was attended by over 400 industry professionals.
