Qnap introduces NAS-based real-time biometric facial recognition solution
Qnap Systems has introduced a Network-attached Storage (NAS)-based smart biometric facial recognition solution embedded with advanced AI imaging technology, the company announced.
Dubbed QVR Face, the solution leverages RTSP (real time streaming protocol) streaming cameras and third-party systems through API to provide users with a highly-operational system for different environments including corporate offices, residential communities and retail stores that need automatic door access management, attendance management and smart retail services, according to the announcement. It provides real-time video analytics of any RTSP video streams from IP cameras or recordings stored on an NAS, which can be leveraged to build profiles.
“The QVR Face smart facial recognition system only requires one NAS for setup and does not require additional cloud computing services or extra computing accelerator cards,” said Jason Tsai, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “QVR Face also provides a comprehensive licensing plan for flexible deployment. QVR Face’s video analytics and registered profiles are saved directly on the NAS with a data protection mechanism to secure facial recognition data’s privacy and security.”
QVR Face uses the application API to deliver facial analytics data and automate service management, providing enhanced on-premise security and flexibility for surveillance systems, door access or digital signage systems.
The QVR Face smart facial recognition app is available for download. Users can add up to 10 image entries per facial recognition profile and can choose from different plans to add analytics tasks or profiles.
