Cognitec’s Advanced Investigation Tools Enable Complex Person Searches in Video Footage
The video screening and analytics technology from Cognitec, FaceVACS-VideoScan, allows users to perform complex searches and analyses on persons appearing in real-time camera streams and video footage.
The latest product version introduced a user-friendly interface to quickly import sets of recorded video and then carry out detailed investigations. For example, security and law enforcement agents can upload the video files of a specific location at a specific time to find possible participants in or witnesses to a crime.
Users can find a person that was previously enrolled in an image database or search for an unknown person and find their appearances in multiple videos. Person searches can also make use of filters that specify age ranges, gender and ethnicity.
FaceVACS-VideoScan employs leading-edge face recognition technology to analyze the count, flow, demographics and behavior of people visible in video streams. Surpassing traditional video surveillance systems, the technology detects and extracts people’s faces in live video streams or video footage and uses anonymous facial analysis to count individuals, generate demographical information, track people movement in time and space, detect frequent visitors and crowds, and much more.
The product applies Cognitec’s premier face recognition technology to compare faces to image databases and instantly find known individuals. Businesses and organizations can detect and prevent unwanted behavior in much faster and more efficient ways, as operators can track individuals in real time, or receive alerts on mobile devices to act within the immediate vicinity of a suspect.
On the other hand, FaceVACS-VideoScan can identify authorized individuals or high-ranking customers in real time. Positive authentication can prompt access to restricted areas or alert personnel to provide special treatment.
