ASIS 2014 | Staying on top of the evolving security industry

As summer winds down, we begin thinking of cozy days indoors, apple cider, sitting by a fire or of the upcoming holidays. For those of us in the physical security market, we also begin thinking
about the autumn trade shows on the horizon. Trade shows give us a chance to check out new technologies, share our own new products, to see old friends and make new ones. This year’s ASIS International’s 60th Annual Seminar and Exhibition is no exception.
As one of the biggest and most widely attended events within the industry, this year’s gathering promises to bring together the best and brightest in physical security.

With more than 20,000 attendees from 80 different countries and 600 exhibitors expected at this year’s ASIS International, there will indeed be a lot to see and do. Hosted this year in Atlanta, Georgia, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, the seminar and exhibition will be held in the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC), in downtown Atlanta. The GWCC is a 3.9 million square foot convention center and is part of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which ranks among the top five largest convention destinations in the country as well as one of the best sports and entertainment campuses in the world. So bring your walking shoes!

ASIS- Tyco Security ProductsSpeaking of Atlanta, a big thank you to our friends at the Cherokee County School District for participating in a recent case study for Tyco Security Products. CCSD is located in metro Atlanta and is comprised of 57 schools and preschool centers, with approximately 40,000 students and 4,500 staff ­— a small city itself.  We are honored that the district chose TSP as a partner in helping them update the school district’s security systems.

The keynote speakers for ASIS 2014 are Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) and former U.S. Secretary of Defense, with Jon Huntsman, Jr., the 16th governor of Utah (2005-2009) —presentations certain to draw crowds at the conference. Prominent themes predicted for this year’s show include sabotage, internal theft, monitoring communications, the mandates of the Affordable Care Act and how to hire top security professionals. Trends to anticipate seeing in the more than 200 educational sessions include cyber fraud, security metrics, drones and aviation security.

Tyco Security Products will be showcasing a new slate of innovative technology innovations at
ASIS. And we have a lot to showcase. Making its debut at ASIS 2014 is CEM Systems, with emerald, the industry’s most multifunctional intelligent touch screen terminal. cem-emerald-touchscreenThis intelligent edge device has already received top honors in the ASIS Accolades contest, with the 2014 Security’s Best Award.  Also on tap, on the video side, is the E-Series encoder and the latest release of the exacqVision 6.4 VMS from Exacq Technologies, along with the VideoEdge Micro from American Dynamics.
