Advanced face recognition coming from Panasonic

By

Panasonic is preparing to release what it suggests will be one of the world's best face recognition systems.

Panasonic's Face Recognition Server Software WV-ASF950 and the Face Registration Expansion Kit WV-ASFE951W will go on sale in July.

It is built on an engine that last year achieved the highest level of performance on US NIST's IJB-A face recognition challenge.

The software can recognise faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, and those partially hidden by sunglasses.

The ability to recognise faces partially covered by surgical masks will be added by the end of 2018.

The server takes advantage of deep learning technology.

Up to 10,000 faces can be registered with the standard software. Adding the Face Registration Expansion Kit increases the limit to 30,000.

The software is able to automatically adjust camera settings to optimise images for face recognition.

It can also take advantage of the optional 'best shot' feature of Panasonic's i-Pro Extreme series network cameras. This capability allows the camera to determine which image should be sent to the server for face recognition, substantially reducing the network load and allowing a single server to be fed by many more cameras.

According to Panasonic officials, the best shot capability can reduce the total cost of a system with at least 10 cameras by 40 to 50%.
