Frost & Sullivan Honours Cognitec For Blazing Trails In The Face Biometrics Market With Its FaceVACS-VideoScan Technology





LONDON, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent research on the face biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan presents Cognitec Systems GmbH with the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. Cognitec's blinkers-on focus on face biometrics earned the company strong domain expertise, which has allowed it to develop its flagship face recognition technology, FaceVACS-VideoScan.

FaceVACS-VideoScan analyses live video streams or video footage for information based on facial data. This face recognition data can be a great help in operations management and marketing departments, as well as security applications.

"In operations, the solution can be used to track real-time people movement, detect lines, and direct traffic flows to ease bottlenecks. In marketing, it can be used to generate highly accurate people counts in a retail store, as the advanced face recognition technology ensures that a face is not counted twice," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Ram Ravi. "The FaceVACS-VideoScan system can also be used to generate useful statistical data such as age, gender, and other demographic information." Additionally, it can be used in airports and train stations to manage people flow and prevent overcrowding.

The solution can correlate live images with the ones stored in photo databases. This is highly useful in security applications, as the solution can alert security staff when people of interest are automatically identified.

Along with the FaceVACS-VideoScan system, Cognitec offers the FaceVACS-PortraitAcquisition and FaceVACS-DBScan solutions. FaceVACS PortraitAcquisition aids the assessment and acquisition of digital images for ID documents, such as drivers' licenses, passports, and visas. It allows the user to capture images for ID documents in compliance with the ISO 19794-5 standards for full-frontal images. The solution's easy-to-use graphical user interface enables users to both review and manage portrait characteristics, such as lighting, skin colour, hot spots, and sharpness, to ensure that all the image requirements are met.
