With the CamOverlay App on board, the Axis camera, and the cash register connected via Kiloview E2 encoder, You can see real-time POS screen data displayed in the camera's live video feed.
About the project
Observe the real-time checkout screen directly in the surveillance camera feed. Examine cashier behavior regarding processing items/goods. Thanks to this solution, you have an immediate visual check that no fraud is occurring.
Our setup includes a compatible Axis Network Camera, any Cash register plugged via HDMI cabel with Kiloview E2 – H.264 HDMI to IP Wired Video Encoder, and the CamOverlay App running on the Axis Camera. The Kiloview encoder can be connected separately to the HDMI output or send the signal without delay via a second HDMI cable directly into the camera. The Kiloview encoder transfers the terminal‘s real-time screen into the camera, allowing every transaction detail to be visible and monitored remotely.
The integration uses CamOverlay App‘s capabilities to embed the POS terminal screen capture into the live video stream from the Axis Network Camera. This feature facilitates a seamless and immediate visual display of transaction details as they occur directly in the video feed.
How does it work?
The Cashier computer running the POS software sends the screen or a screen‘s view area via Kiloview E2 - H.264 HDMI to IP Wired Video Encoder into the surveillance camera.
VMS or video storage
Either the camera image with or without the cash register monitor embedded or both simultaneously is sent to the existing recording or VMS storage.
The beauty of the solution
The entire solution is built as simple as possible. No unique or expensive software or hardware setup is required. Data is sent securely within the local network.
This integration gives rise to the following functionalities:
- Live Video Output with Real-Time POS Screen Capture: The integration enables the real-time screen capture from the POS terminal to be displayed in the live video stream from the Axis Network Camera. This offers immediate visual confirmation of each transaction, ensuring all goods are scanned correctly and fostering accurate monitoring and control of checkout operations.
- Remote Monitoring and Archiving: Every transaction is documented in the video archive, providing a helpful resource for any later reference or analysis.
Integrating a POS system with an Axis Network Camera using the CamOverlay App brings real-time transaction monitoring to a new level of accuracy and control. Harnessing these combined technologies allows for immediate verification of transactions and more streamlined operations at the checkout.
