Herta Security launches speedy facial recognition system

May 14, 2013 - 

Herta Security has announced the launch of BioSurveillance NEXT, its newest facial recognition solution for video surveillance that the company, says is the world’s fastest.

BioSurveillance NEXT boasts its speed above all else, and is reportedly 40X faster than conventional CPU-based facial recognition technology. The new software is also able to process in real time, and can process High Definition video at a rate of 150 frames per second.

“Herta is committed to delivering innovation and solutions for the new era of Megapixel surveillance cameras,” Rodriguez Saeta, Herta Security’s CEO said. “IP video technology advances daily and there are enormous possibilities for face recognition technology. We are experiencing an unexpected high demand from many countries where security has become the crucial factor for business growth. BioSurveillance NEXT is the right solution for crime mitigation in the retail sector, as well as in other traditional sectors such as critical infrastructures, banking, gaming or law enforcement.”

According to the company, BioSurveillance NEXT can be integrated with CCTV and Video Managemetn Systems or can stand alone. The system is fully scalable and is capable of simultaneously identification in movement.

As the technology becomes increasingly accessible for touchless sensing applications, along with the un-invasive nature of a touchless system, adoption is growing rapidly and many people are warming up to the idea that these touchless biometric technologies – including facial recognition — are used more prevalently.

According to a recent CNN/Time/Orc poll, 79% of Americans are in favor of using facial recognition at various locations and public events, and 81% support expanded camera surveillance on streets and in public places.
