SAFR from RealNetworks is looking to expand its customer base through a new partnership with Convergint Technologies. Convergint is a global systems integrator with an extensive $1.4 billion portfolio, and the new agreement will make SAFR’s computer vision platform one of the security solutions that Convergint offers to its clients in the United States.
On that front, SAFR noted that its solution can be configured to meet the needs of different organizations. The platform’s computational footprint is small enough to run directly on cameras or other edge devices, and it can also be deployed through web APIs. Once installed, organizations can use the solution for surveillance and face-based access control, leveraging SAFR’s facial recognition capabilities to verify people’s identities as they enter a facility.
Public-facing organizations, meanwhile, can use the platform to put together watchlists of unwelcome individuals. In each case, the client maintains full ownership of its own facial recognition database, and can manage its enrollment and opt-out procedures accordingly. In enabling this functionality, SAFR can help those organizations comply with the latest data protection regulations.
“Convergint is a trusted supplier and service provider to many well-known customers in North America,” said SAFR Sales and Business Development representative Mitch Fagundes. “By choosing SAFR as a preferred facial recognition partner, they’ve made a commitment to their customers that builds on that trust, knowing that SAFR is designed with privacy in mind.”
In other news, Convergint will be hosting a digital Insight Innovation Summit from May 18-20. The event will give attendees the chance to view demos of various solutions, while Convergint itself will discuss security best practices for the modern work environment.
SAFR recently integrated its technology into the G-Core Video Management System, and secured a third computer vision contract with the US Air Force. The company also released an update that improved the platform’s passive liveness detection capabilities.
