In Emergency Situations, Facial Recognition Systems on Display at Intersec 2014, Can Match One Person Out of 5 Million Faces in 3 Seconds
Dubai, United Arab Emirates 19th January 2014 – Law enforcement can find the “face in the crowd” by using new facial recognition systems announced Intersec 2014's leading exhibitors.
Panasonic's high-performance and cost-effective WV-ASF900 facial recognition system identifies people based on pictures stored in databases. The Intelligent Video architecture can process 1,000 faces per second for up to 20 cameras at the same time
“In emergency situations, the WV-ASF900 facial recognition system enables law enforcement to match one person out of five million faces in only three seconds. Facial recognition has myriad uses beyond public safety,” said Mr. Y Yamasaki, General Manager, Systems Solutions Department, Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa.
The new cutting-edge, server-based FacePro™ facial recognition and matching platform enables high-speed facial search and matching on video from Panasonic i-PRO Cameras utilizing the Face Detection option.
Boasting a real-time processing capacity of up to 20 cameras per server, FacePro can execute high-speed searches of up to 1,000 registered reference faces on both live and recorded video and each server can store millions of detected face images depending on configuration. Reference face images can be selected from source video or imported via BMP, JPG and PNG files and can be searched for a match in a matter of seconds.
In addition, this breakthrough technology allows for advanced age and gender analytics reporting and the ability to set flexible alarm triggers on matched faces using live cameras. FacePro can support multiple simultaneous sessions using the Panasonic ASM200 and ASM970 client applications. The new system will be released later this year on pre-integrated and tested server platforms.
The Intersec 2014 security and safety exhibition runs from 19-21 January at the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre
