Herta Security facial recognition technology listed in IFSEC’s Security & Fire Excellence Awards shortlist
IFSEC, the world’s largest annual security event, has announced the finalist list for its Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2014, the sixteenth edition of this major the security industry prize designed to highlight the very best people, projects and processes in the UK’s security sector.
Spanish facial recognition software provider Herta Security is among the solution providers shortlisted, with its BioFinder and BioMarketing solutions in the running for best CCTV System of the year.
BioFinder uses facial recognition to search for a specific subject across one or various recorded videos. It uses GPU acceleration to speed the processing of video images faster than real time. This makes it possible to localize a specific subject more rapidly than if the video is visualized at its original speed, and is ideal for forensic analysis, the classification of information, and searching for suspects.
BioMarketing uses facial recognition for marketing applications, allowing parameters such as gender, approximate age, use of glasses and various other facial characteristics to be recognized. This can be used to identify a target audience, and screen targeted advertisements based on biometrics.
The Security & Fire Excellence Awards will take place November 27, 2014 at the Hilton Hotel, London.
