Grocery chain rings in CCTV system
RONKONKOMA, N.Y.--A large national grocery chain in October purchased Sentry Technology Corp.'s SentryVision SmartTrack traveling CCTV systems.
The systems will be used to manage both theft and operations in stores. SmartTrack uses patented technology to transmit video images from two PTZ cameras traveling along an aluminum rail mounted on the ceiling. The camera carriage travels at speeds of up to 13 feet per second and provides unobstructed views of people, goods and processes. The HipTV wireless, handheld device allows the operator full command and control of the traveling camera system while walking a facility.
