Morphoface creates solution for airport security

Paris, France

Safran Identity & Security has unveiled its new solution for seamless face acquisition and on-the-spot identity verification at Passenger Terminal Expo. Dedicated to private and public organisations, Morphoface integrates the company’s state-of-the-art face recognition technologies, ensuring a high level of accuracy.

Morphoface particularly helps airports and border checkpoints deal with the increasing number of travellers by providing a fast and highly secure biometric solution for face capture and matching in one single connected device. Based on the latest 3D video analysis technology, this solution combines reliability and ergonomic to enable a steady and seamless flow of users.

The compact unit offers a completely non-intrusive experience for travellers. It features only fixed components and can more quickly capture a wide range of sizes and profiles than conventional solutions which must mechanically adjust before acquisition. In addition, Morphoface has anti-spoofing capabilities to deliver robust, convenient identity check (against an ID document) or person identification (against a list of persons of interest).

In a globalised world where airports and border checkpoints are vital hubs, Safran believes that ‘on the move' biometrics will play a key role in securing borders while reducing wait times and improving travel experience.

Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security explains: "Morphoface is an interoperable solution which can be integrated into existing environments (e-gates, self-bag drop systems, kiosks, etc.). It is available for customers as a turnkey solution or as an embeddable kit for third parties to design their own customised solutions."

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
