Detailed description of the invention. The system of selection, reproduction and rotation of photo and/or video content, as well as monitoring the number of goods functions as follows, At least one electronic stand is set in places of sale of goods, each of them equipped with specially adapted places for goods disposal, besides that the space for product placement can have different constructive embodiment, depending on selected data collection system: electronic scale 2, point pressure sensors, motion sensors, RFID system, a system of electrical circuit interruption or electrical circuit closure, strain gauge sensors, or cameras. Each electronic stand is made with the possibility of combining with other electronic stands within a single network, thus the system can contain an unlimited number of electronic stands and is only limited by the technical potentialities of the equipment. Likewise, each electronic stand is specially adapted for installation of monitor I, which demonstrates an appropriate advertising photo and/or video content. The monitor optionally can be additionally equipped with the audio system.

Electronic stand filled with goods which are disposed in specially adapted places, besides, information regarding the weight of each placed item entered into the database (DB) of the centra! server and the total weight of the goods, which corresponds to the complete filling of the electronic stand, is determined.

Electronic scale 2, set out in electronic stand, carries out continuous measurement of the weight of good placed on the electronic stand and transfer appropriate data about measured weight to a personal computer incorporated inside the electronic stand.

The personal computer also manages the process of reproduction and rotation of advertising photo and/or video over the monitor 1. Using a personal computer, continuous comparison of the current weight of the good with a total weight of the good and in case of detection of differences between them, a verification whether the change of weight is the fact of sale of goods are carried out and, if so, the fact of sale of the goods is recorded. Within one of the embodiments of the invention, a personal computer cay be equipped with a wireless communication module for remote configuration and/or to download photo and/or video content over a local network or the internet.

Verification on the fact of sale of goods may be implemented using different algorithms, i.e. by introducing a delay in the detection of weight changes, in case a buyer takes the goods from the electronic stand and bring it back. In case of confirmation of the sale of goods through a personal computer, a data associated with a change of the weight of goods is generated and transferred to a central server via a protected communication channel, which to be stored in a database and compared with data about the weight of each item and determine which product does the change of weight on electronic stand corresponds with, and generate statistical data associated with the quantity, time and type of sold goods, which then to be passed to the user terminal.

Based on that data, continuous determination are carried out of the level of electronic stand loading, and, if the load capacity of electronic stand achieves less than the pre-specified index, for example, when electronic stand loading is less than 10%, an electronic message is generated and sent to the user terminal that it is necessary to replenish. An electronic message is any message transmitted via communication channels, such as SMS messages, email messages, or messages sent via the website or mobile application. Using the user terminal, remote management of selection, playback and rotation is carried out of photo and/or video content on the monitor by using the control of personal computer, and also define what product has been sold through the electronic stand.

Further processing and analysis of statistical data using the user terminal allows to define how many and what goods were sold for a certain period of time, the effectiveness of the advertising photo and/or video content and its attractiveness to a buyer, the effectiveness of the location of stands etc. For example, at the point of sale of goods (in stores, at fairs, etc.), several electronic stands with the same goods are set in various parts of the point and besides that the same promotional photo and/or video content shown on the monitors. According to sales results, expressed in statistical data, it can be determined where the sales of a particular good is more attractive to buyers and where is intensive human traffic and conversion. If the same stands with the same goods demonstrate different promotional photo and/or video content, it can be determine which advertising content combined with the good to be sold is the most attractive to the buyer.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, remote control of selection, playback and rotation of photo and/or video content on the monitor by means of the control of personal computer is provided through a personal account on the website.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, the electronic stand as a data collection system equipped with multiple point of pressure sensors specially adapted for continuous measurement of the pressure generated by the placed good on the electronic stand. The. point pressure sensors continuously measure the pressure and transfer the measured pressure through communication channels. Besides that, the fact of the sale of goods shall be determined on the basis of analysis of the difference between current pressure and pressure generated by the good, which corresponds to a fully loaded electronic stand. Further work is similar to that of the embodiment with the electronic scale. In one of the embodiments of the invention, the electronic stand is equipped with a variety of motion sensors, which are made with the possibility of continuous detection of the movement of goods on the electronic stand and transfer of motion data via communication channels. Besides that the sale of goods shall be determined on the basis of recorded movements of certain goods within the electronic stand and/or lack thereof. Such sensors may be ultrasonic motion sensors, microwave motion sensors and / or combined motion sensors. The type of motion sensors to be selected depends on the type of placed goods on the stand.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, the electronic stand is equipped with a system of radio frequency identification (RFID) which contains a reader and many transponders, which are placed on the good, and the RFID system continuously detects the presence of transponders within the range of the reader and transfers appropriate data about transponders availability via communication channels. In this embodiment, each good placed on the electronic stand is attached with corresponding electronic marker (transponder), and in the area of their actions the reader is placed, which receives signals from electronic tags. The fact of sale of a good in this case is the loss of connection between the reader and a certain electronic marker.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, electronic stand is equipped with a system of electrical circuit interruption or electrical circuit closure that includes a plurality of sensors of the circuit-interruption / closure operation, specially adapted for placement on the good, besides that system of electrical circuit interruption or electrical circuit closure continuously detects the state of the sensors of the circuit-interruption / closure and transfers the data of the sensor state through communication channels. In this embodiment withdrawal of the good from the electronic stand leads to the closure or interruption of contacts of the system (depending on the type of system used - normally closed or normally interrupted). Such the system may be, for example, the system of interruption of infrared ray, or a system of electromechanical switching devices, for example, hermetically sealed and so on.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, an electronic stand is equipped with multiple strain gauge sensors incorporated in the electronic stand, besides, strain gauges are con igured as continuous measuring the strain generated by the good placed on the stand and transferring measured data on deformation via communication channels. This embodiment of the invention allows to extend the functionality of the electronic stand in comparison with the use of electronic scales. This is achieved through the use of various types of strain gauge sensors, such as resistive- strain, optical polarization, optical fiber and others, and by their design features: cantilever, S- shaped etc.

In one of the embodiments of the invention, electronic stand is equipped with at least one camera configured to transmit video data via the communication channels. In this embodiment of the invention with the camera, an electronic stand filled with goods are shoot, - this is the base image that corresponds to the complete filling the electronic stand with goods. Using a personal computer, the basic image is analyzed and recognition of the type of product and its location on the electronic stand are performed, and also a continuous comparison of the basic image with the actual image is carried out. If the buyer picks up a good from the electronic stand, a personal computer with camera captures the actual image which is different from the basic one. Then the current image shall be compared with the basic image and in the areas of discrepancies between the pictures, the fact of sale of the goods shall be recorded.

In addition, by. processing video data from the camera it is possible to collect data on advertising exposures and on the basis hereof, edit advertising photo and/or video content in real time and implement a customized offer to a buyer.

In this embodiment a camera can be connected to a personal computer either directly or remotely through the internet. In one of the embodiments the camera can be incorporated into electronic stand.

During functioning of the system according to whichever embodiment there is a constant accumulation of statistical data on the central server. The analysis of the accumulated statistical data allows to obtain a large amount of information on the basis of which to measure the effectiveness of advertising reproduced photo and/or video content, the type and effectiveness of promotions, their economic attractiveness, the accounting of interest of a buyer in a certain item, which is determined, for example, by the amount of time spent at electronic stand, promotional photo and/or video content, the demand for a particular type of goods depending on many factors, e.g., manu acturer, category, brand, type of packaging etc.

Despite the fact that the present invention is described in detail, including specific embodiments thereof, for those skilled in the art it is obvious, that it may be modified in form and detail without going beyond the subject-matter and scope of the invention.
