Tackling organized retail crime with video analytics
Inpixon joins forces with National Anti-Organized Retail Crime Association
Inpixon, an indoor positioning and data analytics company, announced it is collaborating with the National Anti-Organized Retail Crime Association (NAORCA Worldwide) to combat retail crime by providing a free 90-day trial offer for IPA Video™ to retail members of national or regional organized retail crime (ORC) associations.
IPA Video uses a unique, patent-pending process that correlates radio frequency (RF) device presence (e.g., what phones are present) to each security video frame in order to help retailers identify persons-of-interest (POI), to follow them across cameras and off-camera, and to be alerted when the POIs return to the facility.
"Organized retail crime costs the retail industry nearly 30 billion dollars per year, and 92 percent of companies surveyed had been a victim of ORC in the past year," noted Andrew Chapman, Inpixon VP Sales, Retail & Entertainment. "As criminals use increasingly sophisticated methods to harm companies' profits, retailers need to leverage new tools and advanced technology."
"Inpixon's IPA Video addresses tough, persistent problems in the traditional video surveillance market,” noted Christopher McGourty, NAORCA Founder “because it can help identify and track suspects if their face is obscured at the time of the incident, in low- or no-light conditions, or even as a suspect roams building areas where cameras are not accessible."
IPA Video features
- Tag and follow a person of interest across scenes and backward and forward in time.
- Narrow persons of interest based on entrance of arrival, scene departure, etc. to rapidly access related camera views.
- Discover commonality between scenes independent of scene obscurities, lighting conditions, and alterations in person-of-interest appearance.
- Analyze the behavior of persons-of-interest across multiple days.
