Howard joined the ranks of The Security Industry Association’s (SIA) New Products Showcase Judges at this year’s ISC West held in Las Vegas the week of April 13, 2015. Howard has participated as a Judge for the past 4 years at ISC West. The New Product Showcase (NPS) recognizes innovative products and services in electronic physical security. NPS Judges represent a carefully selected cross-section of industry experts and are drawn from dealers, specifiers, end-users, distributors and practitioners. Judges carefully review the NPS applications prior tothe ISC West. The day before the show opens, NPS participants present their entries to a panel of judges, who further add to their knowledge of entries when they explore the show floor the following day. After completing their unbiased and comprehensive evaluations, the judges select the best product or service in each category for which there is a sufficient number of entrants.
