Safety and Security
A person’s face continues to be the most widely used way of identifying that person. The speed, accuracy and reliability of Facial Recognition technology have significantly improved in recent years. New advances in machine learning have improved speed and accuracy leading to low false positive rates and low false acceptance rates.
NEC’s NeoFace® technology is the world’s leading Facial Recognition solution, as independently tested by the US Government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), for facial recognition from still images as well as from real-time or recorded video, delivering highly accurate identification under the most demanding of conditions.
NEC’s award-winning identity matching solutions help law enforcement agencies globally solve crime fast. NeoFace® is used worldwide to protect critical infrastructure, ensure safety at large scale events, and improve security at airports and borders.
Who we work with
NEC’s NeoFace® technology is specifically designed for national security, border control, retail loss prevention and customer recognition. NeoFace® easily integrates with existing systems and applications, enhancing security by extracting faces in real-time from video streams and instantly matching them against a watch list of enrolled individuals. When the system identifies and matches a person from that watch list, NeoFace® can raise an alert so appropriate actions can be taken.
This technology has a wide range of applications across a number of sectors. Here is just a selection of the industries in which NEC’s NeoFace® technology is being deployed in order to ensure the safety and security of the public:
- To monitor all areas of an airport for people of interest.
- To track crowd flows between different areas of the airport and alert on potential choke points.
- Automatically alert central or roaming security officers when a person from a watch list is detected.
- Identify people of interest to help prevent and solve crime.
- Enable analysis of pre-recorded video to support forensic investigations.
- Quickly identify people of interest, enabling investigations to proceed at a faster pace.
- Accurately match people from real-time video and post-event images, providing new ways to predict threats, process crime scenes, capture field data and more.
- Identify people of interest in large crowds.
- Recognise unwanted or black listed individuals.
- Track crowd flows and people across multiple locations.
