Facial recognition server
November 2018, This Week's Editor's Pick, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products
Panasonic announced its facial recognition server software using deep learning technology earlier this year. Featuring a core engine that boasts the world’s highest facial recognition performance (NIST IJB-A face challenge), this high-precision facial recognition software can identify faces that are difficult to recognise with conventional technologies, including faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, and those partially hidden by sunglasses.
In addition, the new software features the ‘iA (intelligent Auto) mode’ that automatically adjusts settings for the camera to shoot optimal images best suited for facial recognition. When it is used with Panasonic’s i-PRO EXTREME series network cameras installed with the ‘Best Shot License Key’ that comes bundled with the software, only the ‘Best Shots’ will be sent to the server for facial recognition.
The combination of Panasonic core devices and the facial recognition software maximises the performance of the software’s core engine to achieve high-precision recognition. The company plans to add a function to recognise partially covered faces with a surgical mask, which is difficult with conventional systems, by the end of this year.
