At ISC West, the companies will be demonstrating RSI products and applications including a new handheld barcode scanner used by shoppers and a loss prevention application using the world’s first video camera, which serves as both a camera and ZigBee access point. The camera is easily integrated into a store’s IP backbone for better network scalability and support.
According to Shah, the ZigBee wireless communications protocol acts as an “information medium” for everything on the store floor that generates data.
Commercial versions of the RSI solutions being piloted by Kroger will be available later in 2014 with support and customization services delivered globally. Shah said that the RSI architecture will be taken to market by Wincor Nixdorf, a provider of IT solutions and services to the retail industry.
“Retail Site Intelligence in an exciting new frontier for retail business solutions,” Brian Baker, vice president, professional services at Wincor Nixdorf said in a statement. “As always, our solutions will represent world-class customization, integration, deployment and support services.”
The companies will be demonstrating the RSI video management solution in booth #6141 at this week’s show. Retailers who want to conduct a pilot run of an RSI solution can register at www.retail-site-intelligence.com.
