FaceVACS-VideoScan detects and identifies persons of interest in real time while computing demographic and behavioral data, supporting security staff, marketing departments and operations management in one application.
The application detects people’s faces in live video streams or video footage and stores video sequences of cropped faces (face streams) for each appearance in front of a camera.
Anonymous analysis of all face streams over time allows the software to compute people count, demographical information, people movement in time and space, and to detect frequent visitors and crowds.
FaceVACS-VideoScan also performs real-time identity checks against image databases to find known persons and alert appropriate staff.
FaceVACS-VideoScan Enterprise Solution
FaceVACS-VideoScan Enterprise Solution provides a subscription-based, managed system, installed and administered by Cognitec or a Cognitec partner at the customer’s premises.
Cognitec has selected optimal computing and camera equipment to guarantee specific performance criteria.
FaceVACS-DBScan instantly compares facial images from various sources to large image databases, supporting the biometric identification, comparison, and verification of persons.
Law enforcement professionals can identify individuals in crime scene photos, videos stills and sketches by matching facial images against the agency's mugshot repository. ID issuance agencies can compare ID portraits to large image databases to prevent ID fraud or detect clerical errors.
The Examiner toolset can enhance images for better comparison to the gallery. For example, image processing filters can improve the quality of images retrieved from low quality video footage. The pose correction filter uses 3D modeling technology to generate frontal views of faces taken under lateral angles. Examiner also provides a set of inspection tools that help identify the person by comparing images side by side or by measuring facial features.
Operators can develop watch lists of potential matches while recording a full audit trail for each step in the process. Finding a suspect in a timely manner allows investigators to act upon the search results in the critical time period after a crime has been committed.
FaceVACS-Entry combines smart hardware for image acquisition with market-leading software for verification processes, and is ready for integration into electronic gates (eGates) at border control checkpoints. The technology allows travelers to complete self-service border control procedures in less than 15 seconds.
The system detects the person’s face, adjusts the position of the cameras according to the person’s height and then captures best-quality images that guarantee high verification accuracy. The software instantly verifies the live images against biometric photos stored in passports, other ID documents and/or facial image databases.
A proprietary sensor, able to distinguish between human faces and artifacts like printed images and masks, detects presentation attacks.
FaceVACS-PortraitAcquisition streamlines the production of high-quality photos for ID documents that are suitable for face recognition. The product features a graphical user interface to visually manage and operate the acquisition process and assess key technical characteristics such as frontal pose, uniform lighting, glasses and open eyes.
The software is able to check all mandatory requirements and best practice recommendations of ISO 19794-5 standard full frontal image type, and other international standards. The application supports web services (SOAP) for easy integration into existing document issuing processes and applications.
Leading the industry
Cognitec's products incorporate state-of-the-art technologies relevant to working with facial images, in particular image processing, computer vision, and pattern recognition technologies. Algorithmic optimization since 1995 has resulted in superior independence from facial variances such as pose, mimic, age variance, different hair styles, glasses or temporary lighting changes.
The latest version of our FaceVACS Technology, released November 2015, features the superior matching algorithms A16 and B10. The much smaller memory footprint of the A16 algorithm enables the development of face recognition applications for mobile devices. The release also incorporates an upgraded algorithm for age estimation and gender detection.
Cognitec’s FaceVACS Technology enables clients worldwide to develop new face recognition applications. It provides a clear and logical API for easy integration in other software programs.
Cognitec provides the FaceVACS Technology through customized software development kits, with a set of functions and modules specific to each use case and computing platform, and based on tailored software licensing agreements. Such specific use cases include: image quality check, verification for document issuance, and verification for access control.
