Allevate demonstrating its hosted facial recognition service at UK Security Expo

November 28, 2016 - 

Allevate and Facewatch have announced that Allevate’s Face-Searcher, a cloud-hosted face recognition service integrated with Facewatch’s online crime reporting system, will feature in the Securing Crowed Places Immersive Demonstrator at the UK Security Expo later this month in Olympia, London.

The Immersive Demonstrator at UK Security Expo 2016 will be under the theme of ‘Securing Crowded Places’ and is being run in association with The Home Office JSaRC, the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and other relevant Government Departments.

Allevate’s Face-Searcher service lets organizations utilize facial recognition as a hosted cloud service, requiring minimal capital outlay and incorporating advanced face recognition technology eliminating the need to install or maintain a complicated software infrastructure or related compute platform on clients’ premises.

Facewatch enables organizations to report crimes online and submit moving and still CCTV images as evidence to the police, as well as share this imagery between businesses in related subscribed groups (in compliance with Data Protection guidelines) to reduce crime.

Following its UK launch, UK Facewatch subscribers will be able to share their images of Subjects of Interest to Face-Searcher’s watchlists in real-time, allowing real-time watchlist alerting to any device connected to Facewatch’s integrated alert management system, helping businesses prevent crime by warning them if someone entering their premises is on a watchlist of known offenders.

Face-Searcher is built on the industry-proven enterprise-grade MXSERVER platform enabling automated facial detection and recognition, developed by Tygart Technology, Inc.

Allevate will also be providing a live demonstration of the MXSERVER platform in the Technology Workshops and Live Demonstrations in the conference stream of the exhibition, entitled “Beyond Live Surveillance: The Application of Face Recognition to Improve Forensic Analysis of Masses of Digital Media”.

MXSERVERTM is also available on the UK’s Crown Commercial Service Digital Marketplace G-Cloud 8 Framework and is powered by Sungard Availability Services.
