IDIS releases new retail focused AI product

IDIS has released a retail focused appliance that offers retailers the benefits of AI-powered business and customer intelligence.

The new IDIS AI Box for Retail, the DV-1304, is an NDAA-compliant, 4-channel add-on appliance that gives users powerful additional functionality from either their existing IDIS DirectIP® network cameras and NVRs or new systems. 

As stores and retail businesses increasingly look to use analytics-driven activity to increase their sales and build customer loyalty, they are looking for technology partners that can support the,.

The new product offering from IDIS offers the advantages of rapid plug-and-play installation alongside no upfront or ongoing license fees. The DV-1304 also gives retailers essential actionable intelligence, including queue monitoring, heat mapping, occupancy monitoring and real-time activity data from specified locations.

The DV-1304 is designed to deliver detailed analytics using cameras positioned for perspective view, without needing additional dedicated top view cameras. The first of its kind, the dashboard can integrate up to 32-channels, cost-free, giving store staff at-a-glance intelligence and making it easy for both local managers and head office teams to generate reports on day-to-day activity and long term or seasonal trends.

And IDIS has listened to retailers’ concerns around the need to maintain resilience against future infection risks: the DV-1304 retains the tools that proved so effective in its AI COVID Box and helped stores to be managed safely, including people counting, mask-detection, as well as occupancy and social distancing control.

Dennis Choi, General Manager, IDIS Middle East & Africa, said: “As retailers look to build customer loyalty and adapt to tough trading conditions, more than ever they need affordable tools and technology to help them drive efficiency across their operations.

“Video analytics has a vital role to play, and our AI Retail Box is designed as a practical, affordable solution that will deliver immediate advantages.”
