Cognitec update boosts face recognition feature in Nero MediaHome platform
Cognitec reports that updates to its FaceVACS Engine has resulted in a significant performance boost to the face recognition function in the Nero MediaHome platform. The Nero MediaHome platform enables users to access, sort, enhance and share digital content across PCs, phones, tablets and social networks, and has featured automated facial recognition since 2011 enabling users to find the same faces in images, and sort photo collections by person.
Sorting large quantities of images by person enables users to quickly produce slide shows for particular subjects. Finding faces and eyes also supports various image enhancement features, such as red-eye reduction and facial correction.
“Our customers really enjoy this feature to easily sort their photo libraries,” says Oliver Schneider, VP Suite Business. “The new version finds 6% more faces, and the suggestions for the same person have increased by 79%, with overall higher accuracy. Cognitec’s commitment to providing market-leading technology helps us offer premium product features to Nero users.”
The new version of Nero MediaHome, including Cognitec’s FaceVACS Engine 9.4, will be available in September 2019.
Cognitec was recognized with a 2019 Global Customer Value Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan in March.
