Get unparalleled operational oversight with real-time point of sale receipt data integrated with in-store video.

Without Talon

Without Talon

Standard video provides very little oversight. You can see
that the bartender is ringing-up drinks, but there's no
way to tell what he's charging for.

With Talon

Without Talon

Real-Time POS Data Integration shows problems as they
occur giving you insight that's not available with standard
video or POS reporting alone.

The Wrong Way to do POS Text Integation

Not all POS Text Integration is created equal
Ask your video provider if they use any of these methods for POS Text Integration

STATIC TEXT

Static Text Overlay is not searchable leaving you hours of video watching to find the right clip

POLE DISPLAY

Pole Display Output is incomplete and does not include a lot of critical transaction information

RECEIPT OUTPUT

Many applications output receipt data at the end of the sale which is not real-time with the video

CLOSEUP

An Extreme Closeup is not a good substitute for POS integration because the service area cannot be seen

Retail Threat Center

The Talon Retail Threat Center tracks the business of retail security through the popular press.
With the scope of retail security problems, these issues are vital to the survival of retailers everywhere.

Retailers Still Finding Cases of Credit Card Pin Pad Tampering

Last year a craft retailer reported finding pin pad payment devices in-store that had been tampered with or replaced. The sophisticated security breach allowed hackers to steal full card data and pins from both ATM & credit cards. A book retailer is reporting a similar breach that was detected at over 60 stores. The book chain is now on the defensive, working with federal investigators and trying to ensure customers that they can safely buy from their stores. Talon DVR can help detect and deter the physical tampering of payment terminals and other security devices in the retail store and provides a superior audit trail once an intrusion is detected.
