Searchlight is an intelligent video management platform specifically for retail.
March Networks has introduced a next generation series of recording devices specifically for the retail market. The 8708 S and 8508 S Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs) are ideal for retailers seeking a high-performance video surveillance platform that supports up to eight cameras, offers intuitive software for fraud identification and store operations monitoring, and makes it easier and more cost-effective to transition to high-definition (HD) IP video. Serving as the backbone of a complete retail security solution, the 8708 S and 8508 S Hybrid NVRs provide the same reliability, centralized management and crystal-clear image quality available with the company’s 32 and 16-channel 8000 Series recorders. Designed with smaller-footprint stores and standalone kiosks in mind, the NVRs include an optional, tamper-resistant rear enclosure to prevent unauthorized access to video, power, I/O cables and connections, and optimized cooling to ensure problem-free operation in confined spaces. To help retailers realize the greatest benefit from their video surveillance solution and increase revenues by 10 percent or more, all 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs are fully integrated with March Networks Searchlight for Retail (pictured). The Searchlight suite of intelligent video software applications seamlessly integrates surveillance video, security analytics and point-of-sale (POS) transaction data to provide customizable, automated reports complete with bandwidth-friendly video images. In minutes, retailers can scan the daily reports to see if all their stores opened on time, if shelves were stocked properly, employees were dressed as required, and to review other compliance and operational standards. They can also turn to Searchlight’s exception reports to quickly assess suspect transactions from all store locations along with receipt data. If further investigation is required, the associated video is easily accessible with a single click.
