Howard is selected to participate again as a Security Industry Association (SIA) New Products Showcase (NPS) Judge at this year’s ISC West. Held this year the week of April 6-7. Howard has participated as a judge for the past 5 years at ISC West. The 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 review the NPS applications prior to the ISC West seminars and exhibits. 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.
