Cognitec updates its FaceVACS-VideoScan technology

June 13, 2016 - 

FaceVACS-VideoScan by Cognitec now allows users to perform complex searches on persons appearing in real-time camera streams and stored media files.

According to a company statement, the new 5.3 product version of the video screening and analytics technology offers a new user-friendly interface to quickly import sets of video and image files and then carry out detailed investigations. For example, security and law enforcement agents can find a person enrolled in an image database or search for an unknown person and locate their appearances in multiple videos. Person searches can also make use of filters that specify age ranges, gender, ethnicity and glasses.

As a component of the FaceVACS-VideoScan product, Cognitec also offers a highly specialized IP video camera with built-in face detection and tracking technology. The camera provides optimal image quality for real-time face recognition, even under challenging conditions, while requiring low computing hardware and bandwidth resources.

Cognitec will introduce the product version at IFSEC International in London next week and then at the Security Expo in Melbourne.
