Patent for Optimizing In-Store Display Location Awarded to VideoMining

New patent strengthens VideoMining’s already powerful patent portfolio for in-store behavior analytics using computer vision and artificial intelligence

State College, Pa., March 7, 2023VideoMining LLC, the leader of in-store behavior analytics for CPG retail, announced the issuance of a new patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent, entitled “Method and System for Measuring In-store Location Effectiveness based on Shopper Response and Behavior Analysis,” provides a new way to optimize in-store displays using advanced sensing and AI.

A key application of the patent is to determine the best in-store location for any product display, signage or other shopper marketing element. Behavioral analytics helps in quantifying the impact of a given in-store location on the ability of a display to attract, engage and convert shoppers. This creates a systematic framework for optimizing display performance.

“In-store displays are widely used in retail to drive sales but are executed quite inefficiently, resulting in poor ROI,” stated Dr. Rajeev Sharma, Founder & CEO of VideoMining. “Our new patent enables a powerful solution for unlocking the true potential of in-store displays, squeezing out inefficiencies in display execution.”

The new patent is the latest invention from VideoMining R&D that has the mission of advancing the science and technology of behavior analytics. With a portfolio of over 50 patents and unique hardware/software technologies for capturing and interpreting behavior, the ongoing R&D supports VideoMining’s position as the leader of in-store behavior analytics for CPG retail. VideoMining also licenses its patents to other companies for a variety of technology solutions including frictionless checkout.
