NOMi Awarded U.S. Patent for Tracking and Analysis of Objects, Improving the Accuracy of Retail In-Store Analytics Sensors

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2015) - NOMi, the world's leading in-store marketing and analytics provider, today announced a newly issued patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Patent No. 9,124,778, for new tracking and analysis technologies. The patent, titled "Apparatuses and Methods for Disparity-Based Tracking and Analysis of Objects in a Region of Interest," describes technologies currently available in the Brickstream LIVE sensor. NOMi expects to utilize this technology in future products.

This patent broadly relates to an integrated multi-lens video platform with integrated software for collecting data from each lens and merging the same into a unified data output. The Brickstream LIVE is a single integrated unit comprising two disparity-based stereo image sensors for capturing stereo image data and a single high-resolution sensor for capturing high-resolution and/or color data. NOMi has a total of 12 patents granted for technology currently used in their family of Brickstream sensors.

"Previously, if a company wished to capture a high-resolution video stream for security while also executing high quality stereo vision analytics, at least two separate sensor systems would be necessary. This increases total cost of ownership of the system," stated Ralph Crabtree, Chief Technology Officer of NOMi. "Furthermore," Crabtree continued, "the sensor can be properly configured to support both LP applications and accurate business analytics such as door counting or service monitoring."

The Brickstream LIVE was first announced in January 2015, and combines 3D stereo analytics with a high-resolution video camera for loss prevention. The device uses stereovision analytics to detect people and their movements accurately and anonymously. The result is the most accurate technology for tracking people's behavior in a physical space.
