Facial recognition with deep learning identifies thousands of faces

According to Panasonic Facepro can even read faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, with a 90% accuracy rate when detecting faces partially hidden by sunglasses or face masks.

Panasonic, a leading provider of facial recognition, will showcase its technology features in the Genetec stand at Security Essen later this month.   Powered by deep learning, Facepro integration with Genetec Security Center helps security professionals create watch lists to match thousands of faces—even from challenging angles, partially hidden, and from aged photo captures.

According to Panasonic, Facepro can identify faces that are difficult to recognise within common video surveillance technology. These situations include reading faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, with a 90% accuracy rate when detecting faces partially hidden by sunglasses or face masks. Facepro also has high accuracy reads in matching faces taken from up to ten-year-old passport images.

With the Security Center, security professionals can work with Facepro to detect real time face matching with up to 30,000 faces on a watchlist database. Additionally, end-users can select a face from past recordings to start a face-list search against all related video footage with instant playback. With these search variables combined, businesses can dramatically shorten the time and workflow spent to find related videos that would otherwise have to be completed manually, taking hours, days, or even weeks.

A wide range of applications can be created with Facepro integrated in Genetec Security Center, including; watchlist applications (airport / transit / stadium / retail / law enforcement); VIP applications (luxury retail / entertainment / hotel & resort); registered people applications (corporate / education / hospitals).

“We are excited to attend Security Essen 2018 as a technology sponsor on the Genetec stand. Facepro represents a deep solutions perspective, beyond a classical integration with Security Center,” said M. Hiroshi (Huey) Sekiguchi, Head of global marketing for security business at Panasonic. “With several Facepro projects already deployed with Security Center, we look forward to demonstrating how our facial recognition engine can provide joint value-add solutions to the market,” added Sekiguchi.

“Genetec and Panasonic share the same vision of providing world-class security solutions that meet today’s growing requirements for data-intensive analytics—especially face recognition,” said Georges Tannous, Director of Strategic Alliances at Genetec. “We are excited to feature demonstrations of Panasonic Facepro, integrated with Security Center, on the Genetec stand at Security Essen,” added Tannous.
