Cognitec Systems – FaceVACS- Videoscan

FaceVACS-VideoScan uses ground-breaking face recognition technology to detect and identify persons of interest while computing demographic and behavioural data, supporting security staff, marketing departments and operations management with one application.

FaceVACS-VideoScan detects and extracts people’s faces in live video stream or video footage and uses anonymous facial analysis to count individuals, generate demographical information, track people movement in time and space, and detect frequent visitors and crowds. Traffic analysis and demographical statistics can provide businesses with visitor data to make interior design, advertising placement, staffing and other operational decisions.

Since the technology can analyze a face for gender and age, it can trigger the display of a targeted message on a digital sign.

The software also compares faces to image databases and instantly finds known individuals. Businesses can detect and prevent unwanted behaviour in more efficient ways, as operators can receive alerts on mobile devices to act within the immediate vicinity of a suspect.

On the other hand, FaceVACS-VideoScan identifies authorised individuals or high-ranking customers on real time, prompts access to restricted areas or alerts personnel to provide special treatment.

This product was introduced to the Australian and world-wide market in February 2013. The product can be used for security applications, people flow management and operations/marketing management for the following vertical markets: retail facilities, banks, casinos, stadiums, airports and train stations.
