IDIS’s All-in-One Box for Retail (DV-1304) has been confirmed as a winner in the 2023 SSI MVP Awards, in the business operations category. The plug-in video analytics box from the largest manufacturer of South Korean-made video tech gives retailers exciting new value from their existing surveillance cameras and supports systems integrators by opening new business opportunities.
The annual MVP awards recognizes products that make a substantial positive impact on integrators. Products are judged not only on their technical merits, but on their potential to help systems integrators open new markets, and boost profitability with faster installations.
The IDIS DV-1304 All-in-One Box for Retail makes it easy and affordable for retailers of all sizes to upgrade their video systems, adding powerful analytics tools and functions. Using IDIS Deep Learning AI technology, it monitors activity autonomously to support retail operation efficiency. The box’s analytics tools include people counting, line (queue) management; heat mapping; occupancy monitoring and face mask detection, all delivering a wide range of operational benefits.
For example, with continual automated queue management, additional staff can be deployed ‘just in time’ to checkouts that reach a pre-set activity threshold, helping to get the right balance between over-staffing and excessive wait times.
The DV-1304 is powered by the in-house developed IDIS Deep Learning Engine, which has been certified by the Korean national CCTV testing agency (the K-ICTC) for military and defense applications to industry-best accuracy levels. It can deliver analysis from more viewing angles than previous AI devices, using ‘perspective view’. This reduces the number of cameras needed to perform meaningful analysis and allows cameras located in standard positions, not just top-of-head, to be used for advanced analytics functions.
The business intelligence captured by the DV-1304 is accessible through easy, at-a-glance tables and graphs, and the dashboard is designed to be used by retail managers who don’t have specialist IT or security competency.
Welcoming the award win, Jason Burrows, Sales Director at IDIS America, highlighted IDIS’ continuing focus on solutions that help systems integrators win and sustain new business. “The IDIS end-to-end line up of cameras, NVRs, VMS, and peripheral devices already gives our integration partners a compelling offering with profit-supporting benefits. Now, this compact, easy-install DV-1304 is a perfect add-on that delivers impressive new functionality and value to existing IDIS video solutions.”
