Panasonic Facial Recognition Contributes To Store’s Retail Award

Jumbo Ten Brink Food introduced the face server into their store environment in March 2017 after discovering that almost 80% of shoplifting took place via large shopping bags.

If people are caught stealing, their image now remains on the database. The face server provides a real-time processing capacity of up to 20 cameras per server and can execute high-speed searches of up to 30,000 registered reference faces. With this improved accuracy, security protection is enhanced and the system allows matches even when images are 10 years old. If any incidents occur Jumbo works closely with the police service to allow them to react quickly.
