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

After the acquisition of the biometric image, FaceVACS-DBScan can support the ID issuance procedure by detecting duplicate entries in photo databases—an extremely important tool for government agencies issuing ID documents.

"Cognitec's FaceVACS-DBScan can also be used for face recognition applications in law enforcement, as its ability to accurately scan databases with millions of images in seconds allows it to compare facial images and identify a person, irrespective of age, hairstyle, and facial hair," noted Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Nandini Ghosh.

FaceVACS-DBScan enhances the quality of the original image to simplify comparisons. It uses a pose normalization filter that leverages 3D technology to create frontal views that better match the database images. Besides, FaceVACS-DBScan incorporates various filters that can compensate for quality issues common in images collected from mobile phones or video footage.

Cognitec is preparing the release of pioneering face recognition technology, both hardware and software, for border control solutions. A central component of the eGates, FaceVACS-Entry automatically captures a portrait image of the passenger entering the gate. The technology instantly compares the image to the passport photo in order to verify the identity of the passenger. Cognitec has optimized the system to ensure efficiency and ease of use for the passenger while capturing best-quality images that guarantee high verification accuracy, thus fully complying with guidelines published by the European Border Police (Frontex).

In addition to its focus on innovation and technology, Cognitec offers unmatched value through its efficient customer support services. Engineers working from the company's offices in Germany, the United States and Australia support customers and partners around the clock.

Cognitec also offers a software development kit, the FaceVACS-SDK, which helps customers design new face recognition applications in line with their specific needs. The company recently introduced a software development kit for Android devices, which is extremely useful to the police and the military, as they need to identify suspects anywhere, anytime. Through this application, Cognitec facilitates the migration of face recognition technologies from computers to mobile phones, which can prove highly advantageous in future.
