Panasonic to introduce deep learning facial recognition system at ISC West
Panasonic is introducing its FacePRO deep learning facial recognition system, with a core engine the company says provides the world’s highest performance, at ISC West, April 11 to 13.
The company’s facial recognition engine received a high score in NIST IJB-A testing last year. FacePRO features the capabilities announced by Panasonic as part of its Face Recognition Server Software and Expansion Kit in February. Those capabilities include recognition of faces captured at 45-degree side-angles or 30-degree vertical angles, as well as those partially hidden, such as by sunglasses. They also include “iA” or intelligent auto mode, which adjusts camera settings to optimize for facial recognition. FacePRO also includes “Best Shot” technology, which works with Panasonic i-PRO EXTREME series network cameras with the “Best Shot License Key” installed to reduce network and server loads by sending only the most appropriate images for facial recognition.
“By offering a diversified technology portfolio of end-to-end security and evidence management solutions like FacePRO, we keep communities safe,” said M. Faisal Pandit, SVP and Chief Digital Officer, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “Panasonic continually delivers innovative, highly-integrated solutions to numerous end markets including law enforcement, transportation, and educational institutions.”
Panasonic facial recognition technology was selected to streamline immigration procedures at a major Japanese airport in December.
