IPVM opens dedicated video testing facility to research facial recognition and other technologies

IPVM has opened a 12,000 square foot facility to expand its research and teaching capabilities with testing of video surveillance technologies, including facial biometrics and other kinds of analysis. The company says it is the first dedicated facility of its kind.

The facility in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania features three large testing bays, which will support increased video analytics testing, and the company provides the example of low-light facial recognition as the kind of testing it plans to conduct. A fabrication workshop on site provides tools for developing custom set-ups to test installations and real-world usage conditions, according to the announcement. A production studio enables IPVM to deliver high-quality videos and run live training sessions.

The facility houses hundreds of different types of cameras, and an in-house software development team.

IPVM claims to be “the only independent resource for video surveillance information,” and invites industry representatives to visit the new facility.

Earlier this year, IPVM criticized Dahua for allowing its security cameras to be “anyone’s listening device and failing to notify the public even after it patched a vulnerability.

The market for video surveillance equipment around the world is expected to grow by $1.7 billion this year to support public and private sector deployments, particularly in China.
