Biometric database startup Jagstar completes trial for hotel ID system
Facial recognition database provider Jagstar has completed a three-week test of its FaceFacts Pro ID system in partnership with Next Hotels and Risk 2 Solutions at the Next Hotel Brisbane.
Images from several cameras were analyzed and compared to a database loaded by Jagstar with images of known international terrorists, sex offenders, criminals, and celebrities. Jagstar works with state of the art biometric technology and a global network of partners to identify groups and individuals, according to the announcement.
“FaceFacts Pro performed perfectly, with several people-of-interest identified and approached accordingly,” said Michael Doherty, Director of Operations at Jagstar. “It was effective, non-disruptive and met the technical and operational objectives set by Next Hotels. Everyone was quite pleased.”
Jagstar has previously deployed FaceFacts Pro for several different security and retail operations.
“The proactive benefits of FaceFacts Pro were confirmed,” said Doherty, “which validated the product for Next and set the stage for future installations companywide.”
The company says the private facial recognition database it has developed is the largest in the world for identifying criminals and security risks, controlling physical access, and identifying high value individuals for marketing or customer service purposes.
