Technoserv Group uses Basler cameras for facial recognition systems

January 17, 2013 - 

System integration and IT services provider, Technoserv Group has announced it is using Basler cameras for its automated biometric identification systems, Vision Systems Design reports.

Based in Russia, Technoserv develops automated identification systems to be deployed in public places and processes images using its own Cascade-Flow recognition software. So far, Technoserv systems have been deployed in sports and transportation facilities throughout Russia and have been used to support security forces.

The Cascade Flow software stores identity information and links information between transport facilities, public places and at checkpoints for user comparison and verification.

Basler is a global manufacturer of digital cameras for industrial applications, medical devices, traffic systems as well as for video surveillance systems.

“Basler industrial cameras provide high-quality uncompressed video, which is necessary for the operation of any system conducting video analytics,” Andrey Khrulev, Head of Biometrics Security Systems at Technoserv said.

As reported previously in, it’s expected facial recognition technologies as well as other modal systems will soon enjoy widespread use. Apple has recently filed a patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, outlining a new facial recognition system, leading many to suspect that if Apple integrates biometrics, many more will follow suit.
