ISCON Imaging Launches Revolutionary Handheld Imager

ISCON Imaging, INC., a manufacturer of patented infrared (IR) imaging screening systems, has unveiled its new FocusScan handheld imager for targeted personnel scanning. FocusScan is the first-ever IR-based handheld imaging technology purpose-built for use in loss prevention, security enhancement and asset protection.

FocusScan enables targeted screening of individuals, providing a detailed view of any objects hidden under clothing. The device delivers high-resolution images that allow users to enhance safety and reduce loss while minimizing privacy concerns and eliminating radiation exposure. It records images securely for investigative purposes. An intuitive touchscreen interface streamlines usability, while the handheld platform also features an embedded metal detector for enhanced detection. FocusScan is completely portable and leverages ISCON’s patented thermo-conductive infrared technology.

“FocusScan is a handheld imager designed for random security checks in high-value areas, including retail distribution sites and warehouses,” said Kathleen Tighe, Director of Sales and Marketing, ISCON Imaging. “It is purpose-built for loss prevention and employee safety applications, and its handheld design allows security personnel to quickly and easily identify concealed objects, allowing a more proactive approach to controlling loss and increasing security.”

According to the 26th Annual Retail Theft Survey released in 2014, 78,085 dishonest employees were apprehended in 2013, up 6.5% from 2012. More than $55 million was recovered from employee apprehensions in 2013, up 2.5% from 2012, and one out of every 39.5 employees was apprehended for theft. FocusScan can help retail organizations capture incidents of loss before the employee leaves the facility, ensuring robust LP recovery numbers.

“Retail organizations across the globe face numerous challenges, and ISCON is dedicated to helping our customers better address common pain points head on,” said Bill Gately, CEO, ISCON Imaging. “By providing comprehensive screening solutions, such as FocusScan, we help close vulnerabilities in LP operations, while ensuring a safe workplace environment.”

At the upcoming RILA Retail Supply Chain Conference, being held Feb. 23-25 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., ISCON Imaging will demonstrate the benefits and capabilities of the FocusScan solution at booth #315.
