NtechLab launches FindFace Multi to combine face biometrics with silhouettes

Enters Indian market with rail station contract
NtechLab launches FindFace Multi to combine face biometrics with silhouettes

The latest update to NtechLab’s suite of computer vision and biometric software introduces an advanced algorithm as part of the new FindFace Multi, enabling biometric matching of faces, as well as the silhouettes of people and cars.

The flagship product update doubles the accuracy of biometric identification of unmasked faces, the company says, and increases the accuracy of matching masked faces by a whopping ten times.

The multi-object recognition platform includes an array of counting and search features based on silhouette recognition, and the capability to track movements, as well as identification with facial recognition. The algorithm uses markers such as height, clothing color and accessories to continuously track individuals. Persons of interest can be detected and tracked using an intelligent, criteria-based facial search, according to the announcement.

Former CEO Alexey Minin told Biometric Update in a 2019 interview that silhouette recognition was among the company’s development priorities.

The vehicle recognition function determines the car’s body type, color, make and model, as well as reading the license plate, giving it multiple ways of identifying the same vehicle.

“We have launched pilot projects in Russia and other CIS countries, Latin America and the Gulf,” comments NtechLab International Commercial Director Liana Meliksetyan. “By the end of the year, we plan to implement more than 20 large projects in such industries as urban video analytics, transport management, construction and retail.”

“The solution is of serious interest to our clients and potential customers, because practically none of our competitors has a similar platform for multi-object video analytics, when cameras can be configured for different types of objects, and at the same time one camera can process several different types of objects at once,” adds NtechLab CEO Andrei Telenkov.

Entry to Indian market

NtechLab has won a contract to provide facial recognition at 30 railway stations in India, TASS reports, and plans to roll the technology out over the next month.

The Indian Railways contract includes the Mumbai station, and the company hopes to extend its biometric technology to other areas of the rail network going forward, Telenkov said.

NtechLab announced its entry into the Indian market, coincident with its launch of FindFace Multi, CRN India reports. Telenkov says the country is important to NtechLab, and could significantly expand its video analytics customer base.

The company is also working to build customer bases in new markets like the Middle East, Latin America and South Asia.

Meliksetyan says NtechLab currently has partners across India, and is seeking more.
