Real-time face identification using video surveillance cameras
Neurotechnology released VeriLook Surveillance SDK, a software development kit for biometric face identification using live video streams from high-resolution digital surveillance cameras.
Unlike other facial recognition systems that require the user to actively look into a camera, VeriLook Surveillance SDK is intended for real-time identification of faces from high-resolution digital surveillance cameras, which can be mounted in airports, retail stores, on the street or in other locations where passers-by may not be looking into the camera. This SDK can also be used for easy time-attendance control applications when a camera is mounted near an entrance, enabling fast, automatic counting and/or recognition of individuals as they pass through.
VeriLook Surveillance SDK processes face images in real-time video streams and matches them against an internal database – such as a watch-list of crime suspects or a list of authorized and un-authorized personnel. Recognized faces are immediately reported to the system. Once a face is detected, it is tracked in all successive frames of video until it disappears from camera view.
Face appearance, tracking and disappearance events are reported to the system. The face tracking in VeriLook Surveillance SDK also enables automatic enrollment of faces from a video source and can add new biometric facial templates to the database or watch-list on the fly.
VeriLook Surveillance SDK enables real-time face detection, extraction and matching by providing embedded parallelization of all VeriLook functions for improved performance on multi-core, multi-processor systems with up to eight logical processors. VeriLook Surveillance SDK supports a wide variety of programming languages and works with a range of high-resolution digital surveillance cameras, including Prosilica GigE Vision cameras. Support for additional cameras can be requested.
Both VeriLook Surveillance SDK and VeriLook 3.2 SDK enable the development of biometric facial identification systems for Windows and Linux platforms. VeriLook Surveillance and VeriLook 3.2 templates are fully compatible with MegaMatcher multi-biometric technology.
