RECAP - ECR group discussion on Video. Session 1: Reviewing the role of video in the pandemic. Wednesday July 8th 

The group heard from Meijer, Kaufland and Aldi on how they were investigating, piloting and iterating with technologies to manage occupancy, in a hard to predict, variable and often uncertain regulatory context. In the cases presented, the return on investment was often less than a month for the different technology choices, with some of the retailers seeing the potential for future use cases, a potential that Adrian Beck shared, is one that has not been fully recognised by the business, with the "so what can I do with the people counting data" being the point raised.
