Face recognition in video surveillance

Cognitec Systems : 27 April, 2009  (New Product)
Cognitec has released a new SDK as well as FaceVACS-Alert for use as a recognition system on video surveillance systems
Cognitec Systems has announced the successful deployment of its recognition algorithm, known as B4T8, through the release of updates to its world-leading face recognition products. Cognitec's B4T8 algorithm exhibits considerably enhanced biometric performance over the previous biometric search engine. This new face recognition algorithm validates the Company's strategic aim to further enhance the already robust operational performance of its existing systems through measured and focused R&D efforts. This new algorithm release also marks the second major performance boost of the Company's technology subsequent to the Face Recognition Vendor Test 2006 - which test rated Cognitec's technology as portraying outstanding performance.

New product releases now available that include the new recognition technology are:

* FaceVACS-Alert 4.4 a software product supporting the identification of persons in video surveillance applications. FaceVACS-Alert works as a stand-alone solution, or easily integrates into third parties' surveillance or DVR systems through an Integrator's Software Development Kit that provides an appropriate programming Interface.

* FaceVACS-SDK 8.0 a development tool that provides the native face recognition engine to System Integrators, Value Added Resellers and customers. The basic biometric functionality of enrollment, verification and identification works on either image data or on intensity and shape image data. Additional functionality such as portrait characteristics and face tracking complete the tool.

Concurrent with its new BT48 release, Cognitec has also released FaceVACS-SDK/mobile that enables customers to integrate face recognition technology into their existing applications on mobile devices. FaceVACS-SDK/mobile supports the biometric functions (use cases) of Face Acquisition, Enrollment, Verification, and 1:many Identification locally on handheld devices.

"We are very pleased with the outstanding performance of the new version of our face recognition engine developed by our talented, world-class scientific team," commented Alfredo Herrera, Cognitec's Managing Director. "Because of their outstanding research and development efforts, we are now able to offer an enhanced product line to our partners and end-users. These new product releases also clearly demonstrate our capability to deliver superior products that help solve real world problems. Further, these product releases reaffirm our commitment to maintaining our technology leadership position by continually meeting the ever-changing needs and operational challenges of our growing customer base through innovative and best-in-class face recognition solutions."
