Cognitec’s facial recognition solution deployed in Macau casinos

February 8, 2016 - 

Cognitec’s FaceVACS-VideoScan facial recognition solution is strengthening physical security measures in Melco Crown Entertainment casinos in Macau by alerting security staff in real time about banned persons entering the premises.

Cognitec helped deploy the large-scale implementation of its technology on site, resulting in multiple efficient system installations that now help to prevent losses and criminal activities. Cognitec’s software solution uses advanced face recognition technology to detect people’s faces in live video streams and compare them to databases of banned persons.

“Melco Crown’s security team welcomed Cognitec’s technical specialists to work determinedly toward the completion of these projects,” commented Stephen Meltz, Managing Director Asia Pacific at Cognitec. “We are proud to deliver the first system of its kind in the casino market.”

Leroy Daniel, Executive Director, Surveillance Operations at Melco Crown Entertainment, will speak about the system during his talk “How we got facial recognition to work” at the World Game Protection Conference at The M Resort, Las Vegas, NV, on Tuesday, February 23, 2016. Cognitec will be offering live demonstrations of the technology at its booth at the same show and invites gaming security professionals to talk to staff about existing installations and product benefits.

Just last month, BiometricUpdate.com spoke to Elke Olberg, Cognitec’s marketing manager, where she discussed the company’s FaceVACS technology, its new algorithms, and how the technology has helped to dispel common misconceptions about facial recognition.
