Because of the integrated and flexible wall bracket bullet cameras can also be called compact cameras. In addition to the weatherproof housing bullet cameras are equipped with a straight disc. This enables to reduce light reflections to a minimum. Consequently, bullet cameras are ideal surveillance cameras for indoor and outdoor applications. Day and night applications The RIVA RC6702HD-6311 is designed for indoor and outdoor areas. With the built-in 16x High Power IR LED illuminator a range of up to 20m can be achieved. Due to this, the camera is ideal suited for day and night applications. Compared to the previous model the compact camera is offered with an improved lens. The higher variable focal length of 2.8 – 12mm allows to observe a bigger areal. Like in all RIVA cameras, the standard version of the powerful video analysis (VCA) is already integrated and can be extended by optional filters. The ONVIF compatibility allows an easy integration of RIVA cameras into existing systems. Moreover, this camera offers features like micro SD card slot for local recoding, PoE, WDR, dual stream and many more.
From now on all RIVA HD cameras and encoders include a trial version of the most comprehensive video analytics license “VCApro” free of charge. This version can be activated anytime if required and can be used for 45 days. Objects are detected in predefined detection zones So far, all RIVA cameras and encoders include the basic version of the video analytics VCApresence as a standard feature at no extra cost. In addition to an easy 3D calibration, this version offers tamper detection against moving, bagging and defocusing of the camera. Moreover, objects are detected in predefined detection zones and as a result an alarm is triggered. In order to ensure a comprehensive video surveillance system, up to 40 different zones per image can be set. An integrated self-learning algorithm ignores repetitive movements and minimises false alarms. In addition to the features of the basic version, the full version VCApro includes numerous other filters such as object classification, direction and speed detection, dwell time analysis, people and vehicle counting, access control and a colour filter. Using the new feature “complex rules” the different filters and self-defined detection zones can be combined with each other logically and act interdependently. Because of the great variety of filters VCApro offers numerous applications areas in many different vertical markets – perimeter protection, traffic monitoring, people counting in retail stores or public places, optimisation of logistic processes, home security and a lot more.
Software counts customers in different areas and detects how long customers stay in store The Slovenian retail chain Merkur is one of the first to use ViDiCore GmbH’s PriVendo for a better customer understanding. Merkur trgovina, d.d. (Merkur trade, Inc.) is the Slovenian market leader in sales of home products and DIY, electro-installation materials, apparatuses and appliances, machinery and tools, ferrous and non-ferrous metal products, and industrial items for professional use. The 1896 established company based in Naklo (Oberkrain) operates various stores in Slovenia. Merkur´s mission is to provide high quality products and services to ensure customer satisfaction. New retail software PriVendo will help in management The Slovenian chain is already well known for its modern, well-stocked and shopper-friendly sales centers. Due to the wide variety of products, Merkur is able to meet customer demands successfully but for its management it is sometimes difficult to manage such a huge store. Several questions had to be answered to support all products and departments in the right way and to meet all customer needs: Do we have an adequate number of staff in all departments at the right time? Are all products placed in the right way? Which products should be supported through marketing campaigns? How successful was our last promotion? How many check outs should be open at what time? How effective are our shop windows? In which products are our customers most interested in? And so on. To answer all these questions easily and quickly, the new retail software PriVendo has been installed at Merkur. This software counts customers in different areas at different times and detects how long customers stay in store, in a department or in front of a product. Furthermore, it can differentiate if a customer is interested or even engaged in a product. Results are presented clearly in form of heat maps, hot spots, diagrams or tables. With these information queues can be managed, staff plans can be made, marketing campaigns can be evaluated and planned, products can be (re)placed, shop windows can be designed and a lot more. Improve customer satisfaction & realise new marketing campaigns After implementing PriVendo with the help of some 360° sensors Merkur could improve customer satisfaction significantly by replacing products and realising new marketing campaigns adapted to the requirements of their customers. Saša Percic – head of sales – confirmed that the results are very important for the marketing and human resource department as well as the sales team and management. Furthermore, Percic underlines the easy handling of PriVendo and the rapidly available results.
