Nedap, Axis Communications Launch Integrated EAS-Video Solution

Nedap Retail and Axis Communications have introduced a joint solution based on Nedap's electronic article surveillance (EAS) solutions and Axis' cameras and video-management software, in order to simplify integration between the two, as well as save time and help reduce shrinkage.

By combining Nedap's !Sense EAS solution with Axis cameras and software, the two companies report, the system enables retailers to benefit from a future-flexible IP alternative to enhance their in-store security network. The joint solution is designed to enable the recording of all RF or RFID EAS alarms in the video-management software. The Axis software can also raise alarms and display live views. This, they explain, saves time and reduces shrinkage more effectively.

"This cooperation between Nedap and Axis Communications marks another milestone in our approach to provide retailers with smart and intelligent solutions which strengthen their security level and reduce losses," said Ralph Siegfried, Axis Communications' business-development manager for retail, in a prepared statement. "Applications directly embedded in the camera significantly reduce cost for additional hardware and installation, whilst at the same time simplifies integration and usage. We very much appreciate our partnership with Nedap and are looking forward to working together."

Hilbert Dijkstra, Nedap Retail's product manager, said in the statement that the two partners have complementary strategies, including that of connecting individual devices to offer integrated solutions to retail customers. "We both have a standards- and IP-based approach," he added, "which makes the solution extremely scalable and easy-to-install."
