Recently acquired IntelliVision launches facial recognition as a cloud service
IntelliVision has launched the latest version of its facial recognition technology as a cloud service, in addition to offering it for integration in edge devices and on-premise servers.
According to the announcement, IntelliVision’s Face Recognizer is now optimized for in-camera processing, and capable of detecting 10 or more faces in 1 second while using only 25 percent of the CPU capacity of an Ambarella S5L-based camera, and up to 20 faces in a frame. Face Recognition as a Service (FRaaS) provides matching in less than a second, and can provide additional analytical capacity when on-camera processing is not enough.
“Face recognition is becoming a must-have security feature for smart homes and buildings, smart retail, transportation, access control and the gaming industry,” said IntelliVision VP of Engineering and Products Krishna Khadloya. “Our face recognition now gives system integrators the flexibility to implement facial detection and recognition in the cloud, on servers, or at the edge, providing real-time results, and reducing bandwidth usage.”
IntelliVision was acquired in May by Nortek Security & Control, a provider of home automation and commercial and residential wireless security systems. Face Recognizer scored 93 percent accuracy on the Megaface million-scale challenge earlier this year.
