Panasonic to demo facial recognition tech at Security Essen 2018


Panasonic will showcase its FacePRO facial recognition solution at the booth of its technology partner Genetec later this month at Security ESSEN 2018. Panasonic will demonstrate the benefits of facial recognition with the Genetec Security Center.

FacePRO can identify faces that are difficult to recognize with common video surveillance technology. These situations include reading faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, with a 90% accuracy rate when detecting faces partially hidden by sunglasses or face masks. FacePRO also has high accuracy reads in matching faces taken from up to ten-year-old passport images.

Security professionals can work with FacePRO in the Security Center to detect real time face matching with up to 30,000 faces on a watchlist database. End-users can also select a face from past recordings to start a face-list search against all related video footage with instant playback.

“We are excited to attend Security Essen 2018 as a technology sponsor on the Genetec stand,” commented M. Hiroshi (Huey) Sekiguchi, head of global marketing for security business at Panasonic. “FacePRO represents a deep solutions perspective, beyond a classical integration with Security Center. We look forward to demonstrating how our facial recognition engine can provide joint value-add solutions to the market.”

“Genetec and Panasonic share the same vision of providing world-class security solutions that meet today’s growing requirements for data-intensive analytics—especially face recognition,” added Georges Tannous, director of strategic alliances at Genetec.
