The Face Recognition Company exits stealth with new multi-camera biometric security offering
A new multi-camera face recognition security product will be introduced by The Face Recognition Company (FRC) at the upcoming International Security Expo in London, bringing the company out of stealth after three years of development.
FRC claims its security system is the first “ultra-accurate” technology optimized for commercial businesses on the market. The company’s first product is designed to enhance security for retailers, commercial premises, and similar environments, and can be installed at entrances for applications such as to identify and alert staff to the entrance of a shoplifter on a watchlist in real-time.
The solution includes multiple cameras, machine-learning algorithms running on a local back-end server, and a user-friendly mobile app which manages alerts and watchlists. It is designed to be easy to use for store managers and security staff. In contrast, the company says most facial recognition systems leverage CCTV feeds, which are often complex, bespoke installations.
“Today’s facial recognition algorithms are very accurate but can only be effective when they have an image of suitable quality and perspective,” says Tim Noest, CEO of The Face Recognition Company. “Grainy CCTV images or faces captured beyond a certain angle from the front view reduce the accuracy significantly. With our multi-view system, we are focused exclusively on capturing high-quality facial data, greatly increasing the chances of making a positive match.”
The new system will be available to customers in January.
The International Security Expo runs December 3 and 4 in London.
