Entries & Exit & Pass Measurement Indoors or Outdoors Standard, Wide Oblique, High Tamperproof Highly Accurate Easy Integration (XML Data) No Privacy Issues True Performers Identify & Measure Real Opportunity Sales v Marketing Impact Marketing Medium Effectiveness Early Warning Optimise Staff to Capitalise on Demand Ensure Correct Task Scheduling Passing Traffic, Dwell & ‘Peel-off’ Opening Hours Health & Safety

4 conventional counting!
…. And not only conventional counting! Wavestore VMS Software integrates the People Counting Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) providing a single interface to monitor the surveillance and analytics system. Surveillance Systems Wrong-way traffic Trip-wire Self-Checkouts Standard Checkouts Loitering Health & Safety Door Opening Emergency Alert Systems Suppression

5 Accurate Counting Counting through tracking ensuring the highest most consistent accuracy Count Once Multiple Count Lines Mono and Bi-directional Count Adult v Children Shopping Groups Cart Filter Velocity Filter Environmental Tolerance (heat, shadow, wind, etc.) Operationally Superior NO Manipulation (pure data)

6 Intelligent Counting Multi-zone counting for multiple metric collection points Exclude lines remove a customer’s track from future consideration Pass lines count traffic regardless of direction

11 People Counting Device’s
Unique Features

12 Stereoscopic Device The 3D capability enables to detect individual’s height, exclude children or count them separately, ignores shadows and effects of wind and heat. This people counting solutions is ideal for indoor or outdoor applications.

13 Unique ID for each count
Is there anybody behind that tall man? I cannot see from the CCTV system! Why are the walking so closely? Have they both swiped their membership cards? The people counting device allocates an unique ID to each track passing through the monitored area

14 Filter zone and Count Once
How many times kids come and go through our stores’ door? Are they waiting, are they bored? Will they buy? Will their parents buy? Where are their parents? Filter zone and count once options dramatically reduce false counts.

15 Advanced Height Filters
OK. Kids usually don’t buy but we still need to know if they like our stores. The device’s height filter option uses height/mass information to remove kids and carts counts. Kids can also be counted separately from adults.

16 Identify Shopping Groups
Sometimes it is not so important to know how many people are visiting our stores, rather to know how many items we can sell to them…. Shopping groups option accurately reduces counts for conversion.

17 Accurate & Real Time Alarms
How many are they? Have you counted them? Not sure? Too many, too fast? Lost count? Healthy and safety fines are high and accurate! This people counting solution automates the count, removes errors and saves money.

18 Digital I/O Port: System Automation
Are you concerned about your heating bill? Your Carbon Footprint? The doors’ maintenance contract? Open the doors only when customers approach your store and not to passers by. Start to save money now and respect the environment!

19 Privacy LIVE VIEW Current: Edge Overlay Height Image Overlay
4-Bit Gray Scale LIVE VIEW Additional: Obscure the raw video with a Video Overlay option (Edge Overlay, Height Image Overlay, 4-Bit Gray Scale) Once the Video Overlay option is enabled, requires a Hardware reset to disable each device Current: Images in memory for only Milliseconds NO Video/Images stored when operational Low resolution images while retaining accurately

20 Simple & Intuitive Configuration
Embedded web interface Auto Height & Colour Codes Calibration Continual monitors field of view Remote configuration & management Standard XML format

21 Oblique Coverage 4m 5.4m The device can be mounted at an oblique angle to accurately detect and count a specific area with minimal potential false counts.

22 Key Benefits Accurate, Reliable & Consistent (The best data to make decisions) Pure Data - NO Data manipulation – NO Assumptions! Enhance other Operational systems (WFM, Security, Door Operation etc.) NO Need to ‘Cut’ into EPOS/Till or Workforce Management Systems NO additional hardware or space (device & Cat-5 – ‘Green’ & Cost effective) NO Privacy issues (NO video capture – Picture inversion) Mix & Match Metrics (Same data flow and back-end etc.) Remote management & support Low Total Cost of Ownership Very Low Bandwidth (100 bps) Low Power Consumption (Only 4W)

23 Flexible and Scalable Platform: All this with only 1 device!

25 2300 Device Digital I/O Port PSU Port Network Port

26 2300: operationally Accurate and Consistent (height, direction, speed, shape, unique intelligence) High Environmental Tolerance (heat, air curtains, sunshine, reflections, shadows) Indoor, Outdoor, Dark (2 Lumens) Oblique and High Mounting ( metres) Multiple and Mixed Zones per View (count, queue, service, detection) Wide Coverage = Low Device Count 4mtrs = approx. 26 sq meters) Stand Alone (no need to ‘tap’ into ‘Mission critical’ e.g. EPOS or WFM) Focus on Individuals not just Averages NO data manipulation – NO assumptions (trusted and usable) 100% Unambiguous Velocity Filter option Shopping Groups identified

27 2300: technically Stereo-Vision
Digital I/O port allows for interaction with other hardware devices (i.e. DVRs, EAS pedestals, Door access systems) and supports 2x pulse outputs, 1x pulse input, and 1x RS-485 interface At-the-Edge Data Processing IP & PoE (802.3af) Upgradeable firmware (remote ‘future-proofing’) Direct XML Data Stream (No servers, easy integration) Secure Data Transfer/Management - HTTPS, FTPS, Proxy Server (PCI compliance) On-board Resilience (network & power outages) Master-Slave (entire queue tracking) Privacy assurances TUV, CE, EMC Standards, Low Voltage Equipment Directive and RoHS Compliant accreditation Modular solution on single, common platform

28 1100 Device 1100 is a monocular device (no height data)
Provides counting metrics exclusively Indoor counting only Onboard digital I/O for interaction with other devices With a few exceptions, very similar to the 2300 device Identical data output formats for maximum cross-compatibility Nearly identical web interface for maximum knowledge retention Ideal for indoor low to medium volume counting 1100 Front View 1100 Rear View

29 Height/Cart Filtering
Devices Comparison Product Metrics * Oblique Mounting ** Outdoor Counting Height/Cart Filtering Shadows & Sunlight Heavy Crowding Digital I/O 1100 C Reduced No Yes 2300 C, Q, S, D * Counting, Queuing, Service, Detection ** Reduced X Tilt; No Y Tilt When to use the 2300? Difficult environments (crowds, shadows, reflections, outdoors, high-mount, near heat curtain) For advanced metrics: Queuing, Service, Detection Accuracy is paramount Digital I/O interface is required When to use the 1100? Counting only Standard interior entrances (shopping malls) Where Price is a stronger factor v accuracy

30 The Video Surveillance
Solution Designed and manufactured in the UK, Wavestore specialises in reliable, innovative and high performance Video Management Systems (VMS) which concurrently support analogue, IP, megapixel, HDcctv, and 360 degree/fisheye cameras from a large number of manufacturers.
