Cognitec takes home Frost & Sullivan accolade for customer value leadership

November 14, 2013 - 

Frost & Sullivan has given Cognitec Systems the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership.

Cognitec’s flagship facial recognition product, FaceVACS-Video Scan is what won the company the award, according to a new release.

Along with the FaceVACS-VideoScan system, Cognitec offers the FaceVACS-PortraitAcquisition and FaceVACS-DBScan solutions. FaceVACS PortraitAcquisition aids the assessment and acquisition of digital images for ID documents, such as drivers’ licenses, passports, and visas. It allows the user to capture images for ID documents in compliance with the ISO 19794-5 standards for full-frontal images.

“In operations, the solution can be used to track real-time people movement, detect lines, and direct traffic flows to ease bottlenecks. In marketing, it can be used to generate highly accurate people counts in a retail store, as the advanced face recognition technology ensures that a face is not counted twice,” Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Ram Ravi said. “The FaceVACS-VideoScan system can also be used to generate useful statistical data such as age, gender, and other demographic information.”

Reported previously, Cognitec recently launched its FaceVACS facial recognition SDK for Android development.

Also, earlier this year the company added anonymous facial recognition to the system, following a previous algorithm update.
