Video screening and analytics technology from Cognitec, FaceVACS- VideoScan, now allows users to perform complex searches on persons appearing in real-time camera streams and stored media files.
The 5.3 product version introduces a user-friendly interface to quickly import sets of video and image files and then carry out detailed investigations. For example, security and law enforcement agents can upload videos recorded at a specific location and time to track possible participants in a crime.
Users can find a person enrolled in an image database or search for an unknown person and locate their appearances in multiple videos. Person searches can also make use of filters that specify age ranges, gender, ethnicity and glasses.
As a component of the FaceVACS-VideoScan product, Cognitec offers a highly specialized IP video camera with built-in face detection and tracking technology. The camera provides optimal image quality for real-time face recognition, even under challenging conditions, while requiring low computing hardware and bandwidth resources.
Cognitec will introduce the product version at IFSEC International in London next week and show live demonstrations of the software and camera in booth B600. In July, visitors to the Security Expo in Melbourne can see the technology in booth F42.
