ISS launches facial biometrics for diverse camera angles and lighting in video management system


Intelligent video management system (VMS) and native analytics provider Intelligent Security Systems (ISS) demonstrated the new SecurOS FaceX biometric facial recognition technology, with the capability to accurately identify faces from different camera angles and in various lighting conditions, at ISC West 2019.

FaceX’s functionality, including importing and exporting files and performing searches, are embedded in the recently enhanced edition of ISS’ SecurOS v.10 VMS platform.

“Our new SecurOS FaceX Facial Recognition Solution provides a significant leap in performance and capabilities for a wide range of surveillance and business intelligence applications. Its enhanced ability to accurately capture and identify individuals using profile images and facial characteristics greatly expands the range of applications for facial recognition across numerous surveillance and business intelligence applications,” says ISS’ U.S. Director of Sales Shawn Mather. “And unlike conventional facial recognition analytics, FaceX is fully built specifically to perform with the SecurOS™ VMS platform, enabling seamless control of all analytics functions and management directly through the VMS.”

ISS says FaceX provides biometric matches and authentication with images from different angles, with different subject facial expressions and in diverse lighting condition for greater versatility than legacy facial recognition solutions. Faces can be matched against images from databases or video streams, making SecurOS FaceX appropriate for searching for individuals during live events, and searches can also be conducted by facial feature. FaceX also supports multi-factor authentication for access control systems.

Advanced neural network (ANN) technology also enables searches by characteristics such as age, gender, and ethnicity, or by physical feature such as hair color, or the presence of eye glasses.

SecurOS FaceX is expected to reach commercial availability this month.

RealNetworks also launched a product this month for integrating its facial biometrics into VMS’s.
