advanced biometric facial recognition

What is facial recognition?

Like all biometrics solutions, face recognition technology measures and matches the unique characteristics for the purposes of identification or authentication. Often leveraging a digital or connected camera, facial recognition software can detect faces in images, quantify their features, and then match them against stored templates in a database.

Face scanning biometric tech is incredibly versatile and this is reflected in its wide range of potential applications.

Where do i find facial recognition?

Facial biometrics have the potential to be integrated anywhere you can find a modern camera. Law enforcement agencies the world over use biometric software to scan faces in CCTV footage, as well as to identify persons of interest in the field. Border control deployments use face recognition to verify the identities of travelers.

From airports to stadiums, mass transit and other high-profile facilities, protecting these areas is one of the toughest challenges security officials face. Often covering large open spaces and involving sizable crowds, there are multiple and ongoing threats that should be addressed. By deploying our high-tech identification matching technologies at designated points of access both proactive and preventive measures become possible to better secure and manage those areas.

From airports to stadiums, mass transit and other high-profile facilities, Cutting-edge facial recognition technologies are ideally suited to fortify safety and security anywhere people congregate, such as: Airports, Convention Centers, Large High Rise Corporate Lobbies, Malls, Transportation Hubs, Theme Parks.

neoface®

NeoFace® Watch is a high performance face recognition software application for real-time video surveillance, offline video face search and high volume photo face search. It can be integrated easily with other systems using the NeoFace® Watch API. The design objective is to be the fastest and most accurate face recognition software on the market, using common off-the-shelf hardware (cameras, networking, servers) and where possible, using existing infrastructure.

NeoFace® Watch is a distributed application for operation in a wide range of architectural configurations to suit local deployment conditions and requirements, including across multiple servers and multiple sites. Developed using the latest Microsoft technologies and operating on robust Microsoft Server platforms, it is designed for scalability to handle millions of faces, thousands of cameras, and thousands of simultaneous user interface sessions. Powerful system configuration tools and monitoring utilities provide the ability to tailor the system to meet specific operational requirements and also to ensure continued optimum operation.

Web service APIs enable integration with a wide range of other IT systems such as video management systems, customer relationship management systems and security management systems.

NEC’s face recognition is independently recognized as the fastest and most accurate face recognition software on the market.

Through the utilization of a unique matching face detection method, NeoFace provides high speed and high accuracy for facial detection and facial features extraction. NEC’s face recognition relies on a modified Generalized Learning Vector Quantization (GLVQ) algorithm. GLVQ is not easily fooled by attempts to conceal identity through the usage of caps, hats or sunglasses.

NEC’s NeoFace Watch solution is specifically designed to integrate with existing surveillance systems by extracting faces in real time from existing video surveillance systems and matching against a watch list of individuals. When the system identifies an individual of interest from the watch list, it raises an alert, so appropriate actions can be taken rapidly to reduce the risk of public safety threats.

NeoFace Watch helps reduce the risk of security threats by integrating face matching technology with video surveillance input while checking individuals against known photographic watch lists, and producing real-time alerts.

What neoface delivers

  • High performance matching capability with multiple camera feeds
  • Detection of persons of interest on premises in real-time
  • Real-time alerts to be acted upon as necessary
  • Suitable for the detection of both undesirables and VIPs
  • Ability to process live and archived video images

The NeoFace Watch application is a Web-based thin client with an easy-to-use user interface. It is unobtrusive and requires no operator interaction. The application can be easily customized and integrated into existing surveillance systems and operational processes.

how neoface works

  • A surveillance camera integrated with NEC’s NeoFace Watch biometric technology is installed in suitable pinch points.
  • Faces of individuals are captured and extracted from the video feed and quality matched in real-time.
  • NeoFace Watch software is able to process multiple camera feeds extracting and matching thousands of faces per minute.
  • Circle
    NeoFace Watch matches faces from video surveillance against the appropriate watch list databases and raise real-time alerts.
