Cognitec releases new software version for its eGates facial recognition technology


Cognitec has released a new software version for its facial recognition solution, FaceVACS-Entry, used in eGates for APC procedures.

According to a statement by the company, the new software release, FaceVACS-Entry 5.3, includes Cognitec’s latest matching algorithm B10 and generates higher accuracy rates for passport images with low resolution and other image quality problems. Cognitec also optimized the performance of FaceVACS-Entry’s unique presentation attack detector, which recognizes fraudulent attempts to use photos, videos or masks.

Cognitec has also improved some user experience features and made upgrades to provide system administrators with more streamlined calibration and configuration procedures.

FaceVACS-Entry combines smart hardware for facial image acquisition with market-leading software for verification processes, and is ready for integration into electronic gates (eGates) at border control checkpoints.

Earlier this year, BiometricUpdate.com had the opportunity to speak with Cognitec about the company’s FaceVACS technology, its new algorithms, and how the technology has helped to dispel common misconceptions about facial recognition.
