IDIS’s innovative “Rubberband” and “Slingshot” PTZ controls honored in 8th annual awards program from Security Products magazine


COPPELL, AUGUST 30, 2016 – Judges for the 2016 New Product of the Year competition, sponsored by Security Products magazine and Security-Today.com, have named IDIS Smart UX Controls their 2016 New Product of the Year in “Convergence & Integrated Software Solutions.” In announcing the list of 2016 winners, editors described the awards program as honoring “the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security.” They further noted that the 2016 winners were selected by a jury of judges from a record-high number of entries.

IDIS Smart UX Controls with “Rubberband” and “Slingshot” controls deliver a futuristic PTZ experience that redefines simplicity and accuracy. Intuitive visual feedback enables users to smoothly pan and tilt images at different speeds and in different directions like never before. Operators can use an onscreen “rubber band” to smoothly pull focus to anywhere on the image and quickly “slingshot” to a pop-up with clear details on specific objects, people, or areas.

IDIS Smart UX Controls provide operators with an advanced, yet intuitive, user interface when compared to conventional PTZ controls. The smooth and seamless “Rubberband” and “Slingshot” PTZ controls allow users to easily monitor images in real time with groundbreaking accuracy by panning images at variable speeds and in different directions. With simple click-and-drag actions, operators can quickly focus on and track specific objects with absolutely no need for multiple clicks to refocus. The quick and simple operation of IDIS Smart UX Controls enables pinpoint accuracy in any given environment, delivering a critical advantage in security environments.

“For almost two decades, IDIS has made technological innovation, designed to meet real-world market needs, a priority,” said Keith Drummond, Senior Director at IDIS America. “IDIS Smart UX Controls were developed to create a user experience as simple, intuitive, and smooth as operators have always wanted them to be. Along the way, our R&D team created that and more. Even before lines started forming at ISC West 2016 to test drive the ‘Rubberband’ and ‘Slingshot’ features, we knew we’d developed something special. We’re thrilled the judges agreed and have recognized this innovative, customer-centered approach as a 2016 New Product of the Year. We thank them, the teams at Security Products and Security-Today.com, and also recognize all of our fellow recipients.”

IDIS Smart UX Controls will be featured at booth #2633 at the ASIS International 2016 security exhibition from September 12-14, 2016, where IDIS will formally accept the 2016 New Product of the Year honor. Additionally, the 2016 OSPA awards, for which IDIS has been shortlisted, will be presented at ASIS.
