Artec technologies releases face recognition surveillance solution
artec technologies AG has released MULTIEYE-Face, the company’s new biometric image processing software for face recognition, designed for security, criminological and forensic applications.
MULTIEYE-Face is now a part of artec’s line of MULTIEYE product and system solutions for video security and surveillance applications.
The solution can either be used in the live stream or for the retrospective analysis of video archives, making it suitable for a range of uses including public spaces, airports, large facilities, soccer stadiums or undercover investigations.
Although the facial recognition system has been available for only a few weeks, artec said its interest has already exceeded its expectations.
Several domestic and international government agencies and organizations responsible for public safety as well as private companies have shown strong interest in the solution.
artec has an established customer base in the public safety sector as well as the corporate sector from the DACH (Germany, Switzerland, Austria) region, due to its long-standing activities in the field of video security.
The company already has several projects in the works with prospective customers over the past weeks, and expects a good order intake in the remaining quarter of the year..
“Face recognition is critical for enhanced security as well as for tracing and the early recognition of potentially dangerous situations,” said artec CEO Thomas Hoffmann. “Apart from the reliability and speed, the processing of diverse sources is of great importance. Our high-performance solution makes us one of the top suppliers in the market. Due to the recognized compatibility of MULTIEYE, MULTIEYE-Face can immediately be used also in existing systems using all different types of camera technology.”
