CyberLink to provide edge facial biometrics to businesses with two new partnerships
CyberLink will integrate its FaceMe Security biometric facial recognition with leading server solutions provider ASA Computers’ technology under a newly-formed partnership, and also with Advantech’s new FaceView industrial app through a separate partnership.
ASA’s FR-1 all-in-one security appliance will offer business in fields such as retail, banking, smart security and commercial building management facial recognition capabilities for smarter visitor management. The solution leverages FaceMe Security’s facial recognition to enable personalized customer experiences through notification of the arrival of VIP customers or registered visitors, to streamline loss prevention by alerting security to blacklisted individuals, or perform automated time and attendance monitoring.
FR-1 is ASA’s flagship facial recognition security solution, and combines CyberLink’s facial recognition engine with a GPU-powered server, Vivotek cameras and VAST2 Video Management software.
“Facial recognition technology has the power to transform the way businesses operate,” states Dr. Jau Huang, CyberLink’s founder and CEO. “We trust that by offering a comprehensive facial recognition security solution in partnership with ASA Computers, we’ll be able to help make this impactful technology accessible to businesses everywhere, with a solution they can simply install and put to work.”
“We are seeing growing demand for facial recognition technology in the connected security space,” comments ASA Computers CEO Arvind Bhargava. “FaceMe’s flexible and accurate engine empowers our high-performance hardware to be able to reliably detect and identify individuals in high traffic environments with industry-leading precision.”
Advanteck is a leading global supplier of IoT technology, according to a separate announcement, providing industrial PCs, software services, and integrated IoT solutions. The company’s FaceView app is intended for smart security and visitor analysis, with fast, high-precision and scalable facial recognition that can analyze visitors’ gender, age, and emotions. The resulting data can be used in VIP and loyalty programs, to facilitate loss prevention or boost site security.
The integration of CyberLink technology enables real-time facial recognition and analysis for markets including retail, hospitality, transportation and commercial building management.
“We are proud to partner with Advantech in providing core facial recognition technology to FaceView that will unleash powerful capabilities such as tracking visitor traffic, analyzing customer demographics, identifying VIP visitors, and more,” says Huang. “With FaceMe, CyberLink is one of the world’s highest ranked providers of AI facial recognition, according to NIST’s authoritative Facial Recognition Vendor Test. Flexible, edge-based architecture makes it perfect to power solutions such as FaceView.”
Both partnerships utilize CyberLink’s edge-based architecture for powerful and efficient processing closer to end users than the cloud.
