Geutebrück has bolstered its G-Core Video Management System (VMS) with facial recognition technology from SAFR. The integration will provide G-Core users with a slew of surveillance and analytic features that make it easier to monitor a large number of security cameras.
In that regard, SAFR will allow G-Core customers to configure the system to watch for specific events and individuals. The system will then send an automatic notification to security personnel whenever the specified conditions are met. For example, the system will issue an alert if it spots someone on a watchlist, and is able to identify people on those watchlists with 99.87 percent accuracy (or 98.85 percent accuracy if they are wearing a mask).
When it makes a match, SAFR will place the database image alongside the image pulled from the live video feed to give operators a chance to confirm the result. Those operators can also draw a marquee around a new face to add that face to their records, and search G-Core feeds based on someone’s name or their status relative to the organization. The latter feature allows operators to distinguish familiar faces from those of strangers or potential threats.
“Manual monitoring is expensive and inefficient,” said SAFR Computer Vision VP Brad Donaldson. “AI can perform real-time, automated identification of persons of interest, and identify previous offenders the moment they return and before they cause new incidents.”
“The integration of SAFR’s AI-powered analytics together with Geutebrück’s robust video management software makes day-to-day operational tasks an effortless experience with the highest reliability,” added Geutebrück Product Manager Norbert Herzer.
The news arrives less than a week after the release of SAFR 3.4, which comes with an SMS Watchlist Alarm feature in addition to improved liveness detection capabilities. Setelsa Security and EPM are some of the other companies that have formed facial recognition partnerships with SAFR from RealNetworks in the past few months.
