or real-time surveillance applications, FaceVACS-VideoScan applies Cognitec’s premier face recognition technology to compare faces to image databases and instantly find known individuals.
Casinos can detect and prevent unwanted behavior in much faster and more efficient ways, as operators can track individuals in real time, or receive alerts on mobile devices to act within the immediate vicinity of a suspect.
On the other hand, the software can identify high rollers, members or authorized individuals in real time. Positive authentication can alert personnel to provide special treatment or allow access to restricted areas.
FaceVACS-VideoScan also employs leading-edge face recognition technology to analyze the count, flow, demographics and behavior of people visible in video streams. Surpassing traditional video surveillance systems, the technology detects and extracts people’s faces in live video streams or video footage and uses anonymous facial analysis to count individuals, generate demographical information, track people movement in time and space, detect frequent visitors and crowds, and much more.
For example, operators can receive an alarm if too many people gather in a specific area and measure waiting times to direct traffic. The analysis of traffic patterns and demographical statistics can provide businesses with precise visitor data to make interior design, advertising placement, staffing and other operational decisions.
Since the technology can analyze a face for gender, age and ethnicity as people approach a camera, it can trigger the display of a targeted message on a digital sign or other advertising/message devices.
At last year’s Australasian Gaming Expo, Cognitec introduced a user-friendly interface to quickly import sets of recorded video and then carry out detailed investigations. For example, security and law enforcement agents can upload the video files of a specific location at a specific time to find possible participants in or witnesses to a crime.
Users can find a person that was previously enrolled in an image database or search for an unknown person and find their appearances in multiple videos. Person searches can also make use of filters that specify age ranges, gender and ethnicity.
Cognitec also offers a highly specialized IP video camera with built-in face detection and tracking technology as a component of its FaceVACS-VideoScan product, therefore eliminating the need to identify and source suitable cameras. The FaceVACS-VideoScan C5 camera provides optimal image quality for real-time face recognition, even under challenging conditions, while requiring low computing hardware and bandwidth resources.
