Facial recognition firm Herta Security recognized at GTC Summit

April 1, 2015 - 

Spanish facial recognition software developer Herta Security announced that the company was recognized as one of the World’s Most Relevant Emerging Companies for its facial recognition technology as part of the Emerging Companies Summit Show & Tell portion of the GPU Technology Conference (GTC 2015) conference and exhibition.

Held on March 18 at the San Jose Convention Center in Silicon Valley, Herta Security received a prize valued at $110.000.

Additionally, Herta CEO and Javier Rodriguez Saeta performed live demonstrations of its facial recognition solutions, BioSurveillance NEXT and BioFinder in the exhibit hall.

BioSurveillance NEXT is a high performance video-surveillance solution for facial recognition, specially designed to simultaneously identify multiple subjects in crowded and changeable environments.

Herta’s BioFinder uses facial recognition to search for a specific subject in one or various recorded videos. By working with GPU architectures, it manages to quickly process all the images on the video of the object of analysis.

Hosted by NVIDIA VP of business development Jeff Herbst, the Emerging Companies Summit Show & Tell event covered company strategy, market and growth opportunities, as well as business models.

“GTC has been an amazing experience and a hugely successful event,” said Javier Rodríguez Saeta. ”Being recognized as one of the world’s most innovative emerging companies is a great honor for us.”

Previously reported, Herta Security announced that its BioFinder video analysis software won the “Best CCTV System of the Year” award at the IFSEC Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2014.
