The video, taken by a leading global retailer is the actual CCTV footage of a distribution center worker being screened with Thruvision’s passive terahertz technology. Using the Thruvision system, the retailer’s security personnel detect concealed items under the employee’s clothing. The entire screening process is done at a distance of approximately 10 feet, thereby maintaining health and safety all of staff. In addition, the video demonstrates the Thruvision system can detect non-metallics items, in this case apparel, that cannot be detected by a metal detector.

“This video is a powerful, real-world demonstration of why distribution centers and fulfillment centers are increasingly turning to Thruvision to protect high-value, easy-to-conceal items,” commented Colin Evans, Thruvision’s CEO. Evans continued, “Thousands of employees are now being safely and non-intrusively screened by top retailers and logistics firms with Thruvision technology because it can detect all types of items – not just metallics.”

Based on patented technology, Thruvision’s solution allows customers to screen for metallic and non-metallic items concealed under a person’s clothing at distances up to 10 feet. By eliminating the need for physical pat-downs of employees, the Thruvision system reduces health and safety risks due to COVID-19 by providing screening at a distance that exceeds CDC guidelines. The Thruvision system emits no radiation; instead, it detects when a concealed object is blocking a person’s natural heat energy. It accurately shows the size, shape and location of a concealed object, regardless of the material, without revealing any information about the person’s gender or anatomy. A growing number of firms have deployed Thruvision for employee screening and loss prevention applications, including Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Seattle Tacoma International Airport (SEA), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) SONY, CEVA Logistics and Fanatics.
