Prism and Axis Communications have shared details from their latest partnership, which brings an all-in-one IoT-managed video and analytics solution to retail customers. Retailers will now have access to the Prism suite of software directly through the new AXIS M30 line of cameras, one of the most widely adopted camera offerings in the retail space.
"Retailers move quickly and don't always have time to deal with complex technology decisions," said Hedgie Bartol, Business Development Manager, Retail, Axis Communications, Inc. "This partnership is a win for customers because it combines cost-effective and easy-to-install hardware with award-winning software that extends surveillance cameras into multiple retail functions and also unlocks new value for retailers."
The AXIS M30 Series is priced starting at $199, and supports the full Prism platform, including heat and pathmapping, counting, traffic mapping and dwell. Prism combines insightful visualizations of store data with unique privacy-protection features that enable cameras to gather meaningful information without infringing on customer privacy.
"Cameras have a view into virtually everything that's happening within a store," said Bob Cutting, Co-founder and COO at Prism. "Which is why retailers are demanding camera platforms that can extend beyond security to deliver relevant data across multiple departments and functions. The Prism-enabled Axis cameras offer cost effective, camera-to-cloud connectivity, and drastically expand data collection and insights for any store."
Many of the world's most recognizable brands have deployed Prism to augment loss prevention, operations and visual merchandising efforts using the data gathered by store cameras and visual sensors.

In addition, Prism will also be rolling out a lightweight visual merchandising solution that will be accessible on earlier models of Axis cameras leveraging ARTPEC processors. These new features, including Prism's remote visual access, are made possible through the AXIS Camera Application Platform (ACAP), which enables Application Development Partner (ADP) members to develop applications for the Axis network of devices.
