Video Edge introduces facial biometrics
American Dynamics, part of Tyco Security Products, announces the incorporation of facial biometrics with VideoEdge Network Video Recorders (NVR) for immediate detection and verification of individuals. Facial biometrics includes the VideoEdge system's ability to identify faces in the camera's field of view and distinguish if they match known faces in the system.

With facial biometrics, VideoEdge users can quickly conduct a SmartSearch to automatically find a matching face and view the associated corresponding video. First, users can index and capture faces. This allows security operators to quickly identify criminals, terminated employees, VIPs, and other persons of interest, as well as easily search for persons across the entire enterprise to discover facial matches.

With facial biometrics, VideoEdge users can quickly conduct a SmartSearch to automatically find a matching face and view the associated corresponding video.

VideoEdge users can enroll faces into a database. Users can save up to 1,000 faces per NVR enrollment database. From there, VideoEdge will match multiple points on a detected face to the images stored in the enrollment database. If it matches a specific number of points on the face to one of the stored images in the database, then it alerts the user. The points it uses are face, mouth, nose, ears, eyes, and distances between each.

The facial biometrics engine is built in to the powerful VideoEdge NVR eliminating the need for an additional server. Housing the intelligent feature within the recorder reduces operational costs and improves efficiency.

VideoEdge users can utilize the facial verification feature with victor Unified and Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management platform for a complete, unified solution. Access control card holders are immediately detected and verified. If the system detects an unauthorized card use, operators receive instant visual notification.
