The digital occupancy management solution creates a seamless entryway experience for retailers, with automated stop/go messages based on user-defined occupancy thresholds, and digital content and advertising during periods of lower occupancy to highlight a retailer’s health and safety measures, or in-store promotions, for example.

It is currently in use at its flagship location at The Samsung Experience Store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto.

“We are providing a People Count Kiosk Solution that brings together the best in the industry, with the proven AXIS People Counter technology from Axis Communications, ICON’s retail expertise in digital communications and advertising, and Melitron’s durable digital signage and kiosk systems,” said Mike Turner, President and CEO at Melitron. “Retailers can rely on this all-in-one solution to create a welcoming digital experience for shoppers that ensures safe and accurate occupancy levels in-store.”

Melitron, which is making its mark in the digital signage and kiosk industry as the leading provider of outdoor digital menu boards and signage at top drive thru restaurants across Canada, designed and manufactured the indoor/semi-outdoor kiosk. The kiosk stands at just over 64 inches in height and features a bright, crisp Samsung 32 inch high definition display, dent and scratch resistant powder-coated finish that can handle the wear and tear of high traffic areas and commercial cleaners, and customizable in colours and graphics to align with a retailer’s storefront design and brand. It is also portable with “tilt and engage” hard rubber wheels for smooth maneuverability, making it easy for retail staff to position the kiosk safely in front of the store entrance during store hours.

The solution comes complete with software and services, including Axis Communications’ highly reliable technology – AXIS People Counter including software, analytics and video-based IP camera; Samsung MagicINFO content management system (CMS) with Datalink; and ICON’s media management services, including entryway kiosk and camera installation and setup, content design, customer support, and 24/7 network monitoring.
