Dresden, May 26, 2014—Cognitec Systems has released Version 5.2 of FaceVACS-VideoScan, the premier technology for real-time face recognition in video streams and anonymous people analytics. The upgraded version includes Cognitec’s latest face recognition algorithm B8 and major system upgrades that respond to the growing number of use cases the technology can support.
FaceVACS-VideoScan performs anonymous facial analysis over time to compute statistical information about people count, demographics and movement, and to detect frequent visitors and crowds. The software’s adaptable analysis and reporting capabilities best support operations management and marketing departments as they make facility design and staffing decisions, or plan advertising content and placement.
Real-time identity checks against image databases allow users to find known persons. Security teams are able to detect unwanted or banned persons within their facility, while sales or service staff can receive a notification to attend to valued customers. The upgraded version allows users to filter and acknowledge such notifications, and quickly find all appearances of a person within a given time window.
FaceVACS-VideoScan 5.2 also features improved usability and user interface design, better integration of various camera models and corresponding camera controls, enhanced configuration options, and support for RTSP/H264 monitoring streams.
Cognitec develops market-leading face recognition technologies and applications for enterprise and government customers around the world. Various independent evaluation tests have proven the premier performance of the FaceVACS® software. Cognitec’s portfolio includes products for facial database search, video screening and analytics, border control, ICAO compliant photo capturing and facial image quality assessment.
