Biometric Technology For People Counting And Demographic Analysis

Cognitec Systems : 10 September, 2012  (New Product)
FaceVACS-VideoScan supports security and business operations with biometric face recognition for demographic analysis or counting people
Biometric Technology For People Counting And Demographic Analysis

The highly advanced version of Cognitec Systems’ video screening product FaceVACS-VideoScan now employs leading-edge face detection technology to analyze the count, flow, demographics and behaviour of people visible in video streams. Cognitec will exhibit the new technology, which can support security and operations management simultaneously, at ASIS International in Philadelphia, the Biometrics Consortium Conference in Tampa, and Biometrics in London.

Surpassing traditional video surveillance systems, FaceVACS-VideoScan detects and extracts people’s faces in live video streams or video footage and uses anonymous facial analysis to count individuals, generate demographical information, track people movement in time and space, detect frequent visitors and crowds, and much more.

For example, operators can receive an alarm if too many people gather in a specific area and measure waiting times to direct traffic. The analysis of traffic patterns and demographical statistics can provide businesses with precise visitor data to make interior design, advertising placement, staffing and other operational decisions.

Since the technology can analyze a face for gender, age and ethnicity as people approach a camera, it can trigger the display of a targeted message on a digital sign or other advertising/message devices.

The product also applies Cognitec’s premier face recognition technology to compare faces to image databases and instantly find known individuals. Businesses and organizations can detect and prevent unwanted behavior in much faster and more efficient ways, as operators can track individuals online, or receive alerts on mobile devices to act within the immediate vicinity of a suspect.

On the other hand, FaceVACS-VideoScan can identify authorized individuals or high-ranking customers in real time. Positive authentication can prompt access to restricted areas or alert personnel to provide special treatment.
