At the National Retail Federation (NRF) Protect loss prevention conference this week, industry leader Toshiba will share its vision of driving growth for retailers and restaurants through three key areas: video surveillance innovations, cloud-based system management, and new strategies for point-of-purchase security. Taking center stage at the trade show will be the Toshiba Percept™ family of network video recorders that allow retailers to record, view and analyze video surveillance locally while leveraging the company's innovative cloud service, Surveillix Web Services (SWS), for cutting-edge system management and file sharing.
Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group, a business unit of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., will be located in booth #837 at NRF Protect. The largest show of its kind in North America, NRF Protect is scheduled for June 27-28, 2017, at Gaylord National Harbor in Washington, DC.
"Our broad line of video surveillance cameras, recorders and software helps retailers address loss prevention challenges and removes the burden of managing the growing complexity of video surveillance systems with end-to-end turn-key solutions," said Greg Hartzell, Director of Toshiba Surveillance & IP Video Products Group. "From engineering the ideal mix of future-proof components, to the cloud-based software needed to analyze video, Toshiba has retailers covered."
According to the National Retail Federation, retailers lost an estimated $44 billion last year because of shoplifting, fraud or administrative error. According to a survey conducted of senior loss-prevention executives, shoplifting accounted for 38% of total shrinkage, followed by employee theft at 34.5%. Supermarkets and grocers lose the highest percentage of sales to shrink, seeing an average of 3.23% evaporate, or 2.5 times more than the industry average.
Some examples of Toshiba IP innovation featured at NRF Protect are:
