IntelliVision Technologies Corp. (IntelliVision®), a pioneer and leader in AI/deep learning video analytics software for Smart Cameras, and now part of Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC), today announced that the latest version of its facial recognition technology now runs as a cloud-based service as well as on edge devices and on-premise servers.

“Face recognition is becoming a must-have security feature for smart homes and buildings, smart retail, transportation, access control and the gaming industry,” said Krishna Khadloya, IntelliVision VP of Engineering and Products. “Our face recognition now gives system integrators the flexibility to implement facial detection and recognition in the cloud, on servers, or at the edge, providing real-time results, and reducing bandwidth usage.”

The latest version of IntelliVision’s facial recognition technology is highly optimized for in-camera processing and is capable of detecting at least ten faces in less than one second with only 25% CPU usage on an Ambarella® S5L-based camera. As many as twenty faces can be recognized in a single frame. In the cloud-based Face Recognition as a Service (FRaaS), recognition time is sub-second and allows for additional analytics in the overall workflow where camera processing capacity is limited.

Facial recognition is part of the IntelliVision family of video analytics solutions that also includes object classification (humans, vehicles, pets, airplanes), intelligent motion detection, intrusion/perimeter watch, object left/removed, license plate recognition (ALPR/ANPR) and audio/sound recognition.

NEC Develops Face Recognition Signage System

According to a release first translated by Nikkei Electronics, NEC Corp. has developed the "Digital Signage Solution," a digital signage system incorporating biometrics that determine the gender, generation, and other attributes of a person standing in front of a display (NEC produces a wide array of M Series, MultiSync 20 and PlasmaSync Professional displays, among other products). Using a FeliCa contactless IC card reader/writer and a camera mounted to a 50-inch plasma display, this face recognition technology will use the data gathered to target advertising content to the viewer. The display shows advertisements that could potentially suit the subject's interests, based on 15 user profiles prepared in advance, and electronic coupons can be sent back to the user's mobile phone. By analyzing the information acquired through these actions, the system can also measure advertising effects, NEC said.
