The Video Surveillance Report 2020

Network Video Surveillance in Retail – Security and Beyond with Canon

canon 2As both network security hardware and surveillance software evolve CCTV is bringing ever-greater value to the retail industry.

And not just in terms of monitoring and loss prevention – it can also boost revenues through analytics software.

The technology in network video solutions is evolving at a faster pace than ever before. Higher lens and sensor quality, better contrast and less distortion, for example, all lead to improvements in the accuracy of analytics and more reliable automated analysis.

This means that network video surveillance systems can help address a diverse range of challenges that retailers face today.

To help address these challenges Canon recently expanded its network camera range with nine new high performance 1.3MP devices.  These new models are ideal for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor environments, including retail, city surveillance and critical infrastructure monitoring.

The range includes three pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) models – the VB-R11VE and VB-R10VE for outdoor use and the VB-R11 for indoor use. These models are capable of panning 360 degrees, meaning that retailers can monitor an extremely large area of the store with a single camera.

Furthermore, the cameras’ superb lowlight performance means that improved identification is possible, even in tricky lighting conditions.

canon 3These capabilities will not only help retailers to successfully prevent theft and vandalism, but also provide data and customer insights. This is changing the way that not only security departments work, but also marketing, customer service and IT departments, providing valuable insights to help improve customer experience and profitability.

In addition to theft prevention, Canon cameras, combined with partner VMS solutions, can help with issues such as queue management, payment disputes, store design optimisation and effective targeted advertising.

To learn more about how Canon’s new range of network cameras is bringing business benefits beyond security to vertical sectors such as retail,  transportation, commercial spaces and finance and banking, please visit stand F500 at IFSEC 2015 where Canon and partners will demonstrate this new range of network cameras in a variety of scenarios.

Canon Europa is exhibiting on stand F500 at IFSEC International 2015 at London’s ExCeL between 16-18 June.
