CyberLink has unveiled an updated version of its FaceMe Security platform. FaceMe Security provides organizations with a range of face-based utilities, covering everything from attendance tracking and access control to visitor management and surveillance.
The updated platform introduces mask and temperature detection through a FaceMe Security Health add-on that leverages tech found in CyberLink’s FaceMe Health solution. FaceMe Health was originally developed in response to COVID-19, and can identify people who are wearing masks while making sure that those masks are being worn properly.
The new FaceMe Security also comes with a series of performance enhancements. In that regard, the notification API offers built-in support for a number of video management systems, including Network Optix’s Nx Witness and VIVOTEK’s VAST2 solutions, and the platform has been optimized for multiple NVIDIA chipsets.
According to CyberLink, that optimization is important because it will ensure a quality customer experience regardless of the size of the organization. Mid-size, single facility enterprises can use the less expensive Jetson AGX Xavier or Xavier NX chipsets to reduce their energy costs, while larger organizations can use workstations with Quadro GPUs to track as many as 80,000 people per hour (the Jetsons are better suited to 2,000 to 6,000-person traffic levels).
Small businesses, on the other hand, can install FaceMe Security on their own with a single computer and camera. That principle holds for larger enterprises, since FaceMe can be deployed from the server room and integrated into an existing camera system.
“Biometric and vision technologies are setting new standards for IP surveillance deployments,” said CyberLink CEO Jau Huang. “FaceMe Security is an all-inclusive solution that can completely overhaul existing IP surveillance infrastructures to deliver the latest security, access control and health screening capabilities, for organizations of all sizes, across all industries.”
CyberLink FaceMe Security runs on the company’s FaceMe facial recognition engine. Its algorithm posted a top-10 score in the latest round of the NIST’s Face Recognition Vendor Test.
