IDEMIA launches new video analytics application
IDEMIA announced the launch of its video analytics application Augmented Vision which supports security officers in identifying persons of interest in real-time, and helps speed up post-event investigations. IDEMIA notes that the technology will enhance security in transport hubs, stadiums and arenas, retail and commercial buildings, as well as gaming and entertainment sites facing new security challenges.
The application, which can be integrated into existing video management solutions or access control systems, is based on IDEMIA’s expertise in deep learning and biometrics for video and image analysis including IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology, which outperformed all other U.S. government providers’ biometric algorithms in NIST’s most recent Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT).
“Augmented Vision leverages all of IDEMIA’s latest technologies to offer a complete and accurate solution based on our leadership in biometric capture and analysis as well as real-time video data analysis.” says Philippe Barreau, IDEMIA Executive VP of the Public Security & Identity Business Unit. “With this new analytics application, we enhance security, increase throughput while improving user experience.”
“With Augmented Vision, we give our partners the capability to capitalize upon existing video surveillance infrastructures with biometric access control,” adds Yves Portalier Executive VP of the Connected Objects Business Unit. “It paves the way for our next facial recognition-based innovations for access control and time & attendance applications.”
In a recent guest post for Biometric Update IDEMIA National Security Solutions (NSS) executives B. Scott Swann and James Loudermilk argue that the volume of data and investigative power of face recognition technology makes it a strategic imperative for national security and call on the U.S. government to step in to enable continued technology improvement while protecting privacy.
