NLSS Teams with Axis at NRF's Big Show 2011
Next Level Security Systems, a developer of a new breed of unified, networked security solutions, partners with Axis Communications at this week’s NRF Big Show to demonstrate the power and capabilities of IP-based security to the retail industry.
Retailers constantly search for ways to limit losses and optimize business efficiency. The company's flagship product, the NLSS Gateway, accomplishes this through the integration of multiple subsystems including video management, IP access control, video analytics and intrusion into a single platform. This integration occurs at the point of manufacture, reducing complex custom integration at the end user site. This approach enables information from all systems to be immediately correlated to provide retailers with a comprehensive view of loss prevention (LP) and store operations.
The NLSS HD Media Decoder, which offers a convenient way to display surveillance camera footage, stored media files or online content on any LCD, LED or Plasma monitor without complicated hardware, will also be on display at the exhibition.
When combined with Axis Communications’ advanced network surveillance cameras, retailers can be more effective at reducing loss by gathering high-quality images that enable LP investigators to quickly identify perpetrators and close cases.
“Innovative products that attack LP pain points, such as Next Level’s HD media decoder solution, is one reason why 2011 will be an exciting year for IP video in retail,” said Jackie Andersen, business development manager, Retail, Axis Communications Inc. “Even though retailers have a long history with analog surveillance, the image quality, usability benefits, and cross-functionality opportunities that IP technology allows is tipping the scales toward digital surveillance.”
In retail, the combination of industry leading IP-based security devices can be leveraged for uses beyond LP. Retailers can optimize operations by leveraging video footage to monitor traffic at front registers or determine conversion rates at a particular end-cap display.
