Allevate releases SaaS face recognition service on UK digital marketplace
Allevate’s SaaS G-Cloud offering is enabled by Sungard Availability Services, which provides a secure managed cloud IaaS and PaaS platform, with official classification for UK government service provision.
Developed by Tygart Technology, MXSERVER uses face recognition technology to process large amounts of textual, video and photo collections rapidly – automatically discovering, grouping and extracting segments depicting people.
The solution searches media archives to locate other assets which depict people of interest, as well as indexes the digital media itself to enable it to be efficiently searched using a face image.
Tygart’s solution turns up results within minutes rather than hours or days because the digital media files are processed in parallel over a distributed cloud-architecture.
“MXSERVER delivers a Big Data solution for law-enforcement’s growing video and photo assets. It provides a significantly enhanced identification capability that is quicker and more efficient than manually watching video,” according to Allevate.
For an easy to calculate monthly service fee, Digital Services Marketplace G-Cloud 8 framework is now offering access to both the software and all hosting and storage services.
The G-Cloud catalogue — which is open to all public sector clients — is designed to provide a simple streamlined process for purchasing ICT focused products and services without having to invite tenders from suppliers.
