Axis Communication IP Video System Helps In Loss Prevention Issues Of Retailer Paul Smith
Axis Communication IP Video System Helps In Loss Prevention Issues Of Retailer Paul Smith

Axis’ IP video system provides facial recognition capabilities to alert store managers about shoplifters Mission Fast-growing retailer and fashion designer Paul Smith needed to replace an ageing, failing legacy analog-based CCTV camera estate located in its 45 stores around the world. Paul Smith’s IT department therefore took over the management of the legacy cameras with a view to upgrading the whole system to IP video, over a three year period. To meet its targets Paul Smith needed a system that was capable of lasting at least 10 years. Therefore it required a network camera manufacturer which had global support capability, as well as retail sector expertise and a strong focus on research and development to future-proof the new investment. Solution After a painstaking evaluation process, Paul Smith selected Axis network cameras. The company specified AXIS M3014 Network Cameras in all stores, as part of the complete IP video upgrade, with most stores fitted with 8-12 cameras. Additionally, store rooms of some outlets were equipped with AXIS M3005-V Network Cameras. A total of over 550 cameras will have been installed by the end of the 3-year IP video upgrade program in 2015. Centrally Managed and Future-Proofed Global Network Video Paul Smith is one of the UK’s leading retail and fashion success stories with major offices and showrooms in the key fashion centers of the world, including London, Milan, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Düsseldorf, Sydney and a significant retail presence in 35 countries worldwide. It currently has 24 stores in the UK. The company’s growth in the US and across Europe is accelerating with plans to open at least five new stores every year for the next five years. The business has annual sales exceeding £400m today. Founder Sir Paul Smith opened his first shop in his native Nottingham at the age of 24 in 1970 and has now established himself as the pre-eminent British fashion designer. Paul Smith’s Head of IT, Lee Bingham, looks for IP –based solutions which are capable of scaling quickly and effectively and can be managed within the corporate network. To simplify management and bring down costs he only specifies new IT devices and services which will last at least 10 years. "Managers can use this business intelligence to investigate further and make improvements. It is this sort of capability that we will be looking to offer to managers in the coming years" Paul Smith’s legacy CCTV estate had grown organically as the group expanded around the world. When the IT department was asked to take over the running of the CCTV systems, Lee Bingham insisted that it must be moved to IP, “If it’s not IP then it’s not IT, and therefore it made no sense to move its management from our Facilities Management team over to the IT department unless images were going to be accessible on the network by authorized managers from their desktops.” Paul Smith’s IT department researched the market, looking for robust, scalable IP video hardware and software. After a comprehensive evaluation Paul Smith chose Axis network cameras, together with Axis video encoders to integrate some of those existing CCTV cameras not being immediately replaced. Axis network cameras deliver images which are recorded on new local servers using Milestone XProtect® Corporate Video Management Software. The installation and networking of the new IP video system in 45 stores globally will take three years and is being carried out by Axis Partner A1 Data Comms. Six stores with known loss prevention issues were earmarked for a hybrid CCTV-IP solution to help deliver rapid results. In these stores AXIS Q7406 Video Encoder Blades were fitted into existing local CCTV servers, enabling current CCTV cameras to be integrated into Paul Smith’s new IP-based video surveillance system. 64 analog cameras have so far been brought onto the network in this way. Result "There would be some logic in being able to integrate our CRM system with an IP video-based facial recognition system to ensure high value customers have the best possible experience in-store" Paul Smith is replacing an ageing and unmanageable CCTV estate with a state-of-the-art IP video system. This provides 100% store-wide coverage and HDTV 720p images in all its fully owned stores globally. AXIS M3014 is designed to fit into the same size ceiling void as a standard spotlight and is so discreet that it is often mistaken for a spotlight rather than a powerful HDTV network camera. Paul Smith is able to gather high quality images capable of use as evidence in a court of law. In the future it will also provide a platform to integrate video analytics software for dwell-time analysis, heat mapping, people counting, facial recognition and even CRM and Point of Sale systems integration. Lee Bingham, Head of IT, Paul Smith, said, “Just days after the Axis cameras were installed in Paul Smith’s new store in Beak Street, London, someone bought goods there with a fraudulent US-based credit card. Because the card wasn’t ‘Chip and Pin’ that person was able to complete the transaction but when we were alerted by the bank that this was fraudulent we were able to refer to the new system’s HDTV quality images to identify the suspect, show the fraudulent transaction in progress and then hand the evidence to the authorities.” “Our objective, as soon as the new IP video system has been rolled out globally, will be to build on this investment by extending its value beyond loss prevention. We will work closely with our retail management team to explore the power of the new system – potentially deploying techniques such as facial recognition, heat mapping and dwell-time analytics that enable us to better understand and serve our customers.” The new IP video system provides a cost effective platform for integrating facial recognition capabilities. Applications can be uploaded to local cameras, enabling managers to measure the time customers are spending interacting with a new line of clothing or getting advice from staff. Facial recognition can also be used to detect and alert store managers if known shoplifters or fraudsters enter the store. Lee Bingham continues, “We see specific value in knowing our best customers wherever we are serving them. We want our best online customers to be recognized as such when they come into store. There would be some logic in being able to integrate our CRM system with an IP video-based facial recognition system to ensure high value customers have the best possible experience in-store. Additionally, we know video analytics can be used to study how customers walk through a store. Heat mapping and dwell-time analytics software could be used to analyze which displays are working best to attract and retain shoppers. Managers can use this business intelligence to investigate further and make improvements. It is this sort of capability that we will be looking to offer to managers in the coming years.”

Axis Communications IP Cameras Part Of Stockholm Central Station's Safety Improvement Upgrade
Axis Communications IP Cameras Part Of Stockholm Central Station's Safety Improvement Upgrade

Mission Axis Network IP Cameras keep a watchful eye on Stockholm Central Station and City Terminal Jernhusen is a state-owned property company that owns and manages around a hundred properties along the Swedish railways. The biggest and by far the most visited properties are Central Station and City Terminal in Stockholm. In 2009, Jernhusen started the ‘Safe Station’ project, a combined initiative involving technology, surveillance and social activities. One component was to review camera surveillance. Jernhusen realized that the camera installation in the properties needed to be modernized to produce better image quality and more efficient surveillance. A decision was made to invest in IP-based cameras and a thorough procurement process was implemented.SolutionThe contract at City Terminal was awarded to Axis partner, Insupport. So far, 33 cameras have been installed in City Terminal and Central Station; 15 AXIS Q6034, ten AXIS P3364 and eight AXIS P8514 Network Cameras, together with six AXIS P7210 Video Encoders for the existing analog cameras. The software that handles viewing/recording is Milestone XProtect® Corporate 5.0.ResultThe most important benefit of the new IP camera system is that Jernhusen now has a user-friendly, flexible system with better image quality and higher efficiency. Using the high-resolution camera images, it has been possible to help the police solve more crimes in a more efficient manner. The new system can easily be extended in terms of both cameras and functions as it is based on open technical platforms.

MetrôRio Use IndigoVision IP Video To Protect The 700,000 People Who Travel On Its Network
MetrôRio Use IndigoVision IP Video To Protect The 700,000 People Who Travel On Its Network

MetrôRio, Rio de Janeiro’s metro system, has chosen IndigoVision to supply a complete IP video security solution to protect the 700,000 people who travel daily on its network and to allow for future expansion of the metro service. IndigoVision won the contract to replace MetrôRio’s ageing analog surveillance system because of the superior image quality of the IndigoVision cameras, which makes for precise identification of individuals in recorded images, coupled with the flexibility of the IP system, which can be easily scaled up as the metro network grows.    Mr Newton Werneck, CIO of MetrôRio stated: "IndigoVision's image quality is excellent and the distributed architecture of the system will allow the surveillance network to grow along with the metro system." Another crucial factor in winning the business with MetrôRio is the system’s highly efficient and economical storage capability. Compared with other IP video systems, storage requirements are significantly reduced thanks to IndigoVision’s advanced compression technology and the use of the unique Activity Controlled Frame rate (ACF) feature, which is built into the IP cameras. ACF regulates the frame rate of the video stream according to the motion in a particular scene. When there is no activity, video is streamed at minimal frame rate; the instant any motion is detected, video is simultaneously transmitted at the maximum configured frame rate.  This responsiveness provides both greater detail for analysis and also allows for economy of data storage.  The IndigoVision system also provides MetrôRio with improved event archives and content distribution across its network: IndigoVision’s unique distributed architecture eliminates the need for a central server, which means that the surveillance system can expand quickly and as required. IndigoVision’s Brazilian partner Setha Prosegur worked with MetrôRio to create the surveillance system, which includes 141 fixed IP cameras, 21 PTZ cameras and approximately 700 existing analog cameras that have been integrated into the system using IndigoVision encoders. An IndigoVision NVR-AS 3000 (network video recorder) is in place at each station, with back-up provided between stations. Founded in 1979 with five stations operating on one line, MetrôRio now covers 47km (29 miles) divided into two lines and 35 stations. The network continues to grow with a further line under construction and due for completion in 2016.
