Impinj Opens Retail Experience Center
Impinj has announced the opening of the Retail Experience Center (REC), designed to test and showcase item connectivity applications in real-world retail shopping scenarios. At the 11,000-square-foot REC, located in a former grocery store in Seattle, retail executives, members of the media and others can visit in order to learn about and engage in a wide range of demonstrations and interactions that highlight the value of RFID-based item-level intelligence data, according to Impinj.
A group of select sponsors are providing key technology and merchandise, including CreativeSystems, Data2, Intel, Mervin Manufacturing and Smartrac. The Impinj REC is stocked with Mervin's 2014-15 line of Lib Tech snowboards, apparel and accessories, all tagged with RFID. Hangtags and adhesive labels supplied by Smartrac provide unique identifiers for each Lib Tech item. The REC is equipped with Impinj xArray gateways, which provide hands-free, always-on monitoring of tagged items. The information collected by the xArray gateways allows for real-time visibility into product identity, availability and location within a store, while an interactive snowboard display engages visitors with product information as items are placed on a special rack. Smart fitting rooms provide visitors with additional information regarding related products as they bring items in to try on. RFID-enabled tag solutions for jewelry are provided by Data2, and workflow applications from CreativeSystems showcase item intelligence applications on consumer-grade mobile devices. Intel supplied the tablet computers used within the REC.
