Station Building Shopping Center / Japan
The "S-PAL" shopping center is located in Sendai Station, which has more than 83,000 passengers each day. Inside is the "S-PAL" shopping center, which has a total of 171 Panasonic network cameras operating to enable a comfortable store environment for customers and employees.
As a large facility used daily by a large number of customers, S-PAL was considering adopting cameras for checking the status of each floor and corner. Some sales floors already had analog cameras, but time and money was being spent on installing coaxial cables and power cables when adding or moving cameras, so S-PAL was considering adopting network cameras that can be connected via a LAN cable and also powered via a LAN cable (PoE).
Cameras were installed in store aisles, escalator doors, entrances/exits, and side doors, etc.
Cameras without blind spots were installed in sales floors, with these cameras not causing discomfort in regular customers, but also being visible enough to deter crime. Monitors were installed to enable video to be viewed from staff rooms, and enable employees to immediately identify when a problem arises in a sales floor or when assistance is needed.
In addition to the Sendai store, the same system was constructed at the Koriyama, Yamagata, and Fukushima stores.
An environment for viewing the video from each store was set up at the head office in Sendai, and system problems could be handled at the head office.
