Retailers keep watch with combined Epos and digital video recording

Visimetrics has teamed up with leading EPoS provider NISYST to produce a combined electronic point of sale and digital video recording system for retail surveillance.

The new PoSDVR system enables stores to combine the capture, storage and access of digitally recorded CCTV images with EPoS data in the same physical unit, meaning the linking of fraudulent transactions and the recorded video evidence is easier.

Based on the Epson IR700 Touch Screen EPoS system, the closely integrated software product of NISYST's NPoS with Visimetrics OCTAR application provides staff with instant access to recorded CCTV images, driven by the search of specific EPoS transactions.

The system can record the filming of up to eight standard CCTV cameras. Integrating the EPoS and CCTV recording applications together in this way simplifies installation, operation and future maintenance, said the two partners.

PoSDVR provides simultaneous access to live or recorded images locally, over the local network to standard PC’s in store, or across wider networks such as a VPN to central locations.

PoSDVR can export images to CD or DVD when they are required by the police for evidential purposes, and the inbuilt audit system ensures any exported footage complies fully with the HOSDB "Digital Images as Evidence" guidelines.
