Facial recognition tech a key security measure for Summer Deaflympics
The Turkish Ministry of Youth and Sports has selected NEC‘s face recognition technology to ensure the security of participants at this year’s Summer Deaflympics in Samsun, Turkey. The event features more than 5,000 participants from 109 countries across 21 categories.
This marks the first instance of face recognition technology being used as a key security measure for the Summer Deaflympics. NEC’s face recognition technology is being implemented among kiosks and security access control systems, enabling rapid identification, and ensuring that participants and audiences enjoy a safe and secure experience.
The secure access control solution was designed, developed, implemented and tested jointly by NEC Telecommunication Information Technology and its local partner MIA. The solution includes 30 NEC face recognition checkpoints that verify the identities of participants and ticket holders, by referencing a database of photos that are provided in advance of the events. The solution features immediate response time and the world’s highest matching accuracy.
