NEC's NeoFace Technology Accelerates Surveillance Identification
IRVING, TX: NEC, a provider of IT, communications, managed services and biometric solutions announces that its facial recognition algorithm NeoFace will now be used in the law enforcement sector.
The company claims that NeoFace Reveal and NeoFace Match are the products that will be used for federal services and surveillance. The company affirms that the NeoFace technology transforms poor quality, highly compressed surveillance images and videos to usable evidence and leading to higher rates of positive identification. It captures ‘latent face’ either from photographs or crime scene videos. Latent faces are collected, enhanced and encoded for search against a facial gallery and through user-friendly applications are available for side-by-side viewing and verification. NeoFace Reveal can be used as a standalone solution or can be integrated with NEC biometric identification system.
NeoFace Match will be available to third-party system integrators as an ‘appliance’ for integration in facial recognition solutions or existing identification systems, NeoFace Match includes NEC’s core facial recognition capabilities such as image processing, face detection, quality assessment, template encoding and matching.
The products will enable law enforcement agencies to investigate and solve crimes by searching mug photo databases accurately as well as scan a known watch list and provides an alert on detecting a face.
“Faced with ever-increasing threats, as well as the need for improved customer engagements and loss prevention, public safety agencies (such as law enforcement, border control, immigration) and enterprises around the world are increasingly turning to facial recognition, a highly reliable and accurate identification method,” says Raffie Beroukhim, VP, NEC Corporation of America’s Biometrics Solutions Division.
