GREENVILLE, SC - March 14, 2008 - ScanSource Security, a sales unit of ScanSource, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCSC), and leading distributor of electronic security products, has seen a successful start to its 2008 IP Workshop seminars with its recent Phoenix, AZ and Greenville, SC shows. The IP Workshops were created for dealers looking to learn more about IP-based physical security solutions. For 2008, select Workshops have also had a third day added to discuss wireless mesh network solutions. What’s more, Cisco, the worldwide leader in network technology offerings, is providing the network training.

The IP Workshops were designed to educate dealers on the basics of networking, provide an introduction to network video and offer hands-on demonstrations of the latest network-based physical security solutions. The Workshops are an integral part of ScanSource Security’s focused effort to help dealers stay ahead of the competition and well-versed on the latest technologies, ensuring they are able to meet end-user demand.

“We received an overwhelming response to our IP Workshops last year and have even surpassed that with our first two shows of 2008,” said Tony Sorrentino, vice president of merchandising, ScanSource Security. “Dealers attending our events gain a significant advantage over the competition when looking to offer network-based solutions to their customers. Our format changes and technology additions will make this business-building resource even more valuable to security dealers.”

"The IP Workshop I attended this year was very helpful - even better than last year," said Ted Morgan, director of card/security solutions, American Barcode and RFID, and attendee of the Phoenix Workshop. "It was well organized and very focused on IP, while also showcasing some unique software and applications. The layout of the show - instruction in one room and vendor fair in another - was also beneficial, as it allowed us to attend the educational portion and then have more personal conversations with the vendors. The time allotted for each presenter was right on and the venue was great. All in all, this show was extremely valuable for me."

Sponsors for the IP Workshops are ADTRAN, Axis, Brivo, Cisco, HID, IQinvision, ipConfigure, Panasonic, PowerDsine, and Sony.
