The challenge is that surveillance images need to be high quality in order to be matched accurately to the database, and the quality of images from retail security cameras (also known as CCTV cameras) can vary significantly due to the camera’s location, resolution, and the movement of the individual.
MotionDSP’s Ikena Forensic software is able to significantly increase the fidelity of images captured from video so the clearest image can be matched to the database and given to law enforcement. If an employee spots a suspected shoplifter, security staff can use Ikena to quickly extract a high quality still image and verify a positive match. Security can then immediately turn the image over to law enforcement so they can apprehend the suspect.
Shoplifters who might not otherwise be caught and convicted will be stopped, preventing further loss. Law enforcement does not typically have the resources to apply video forensic services to non-violent crimes. Stores help the police take shoplifters off the street by providing them with high-quality evidence. Stop one or two shoplifters and the software pays for itself.Explore Ikena Forensic Request Pricing
