Optics is a subscription-based Korbyt feature for Digital Signage that uses a USB camera attached to the media player controlling a screen so that the Korbyt System can track information about who is present in front of the screen.
Tracking information such as:
- The number of people present in front of the screen
- The time that people are dwelling in front of the screen
