RealNetworks is expanding the reach of its SAFR facial recognition platform. The company has announced a partnership with the Brazilian video surveillance company Digifort to make SAFR available to Digifort customers around the world.
“We are delighted to partner with Digifort to accelerate the availability of SAFR for security professionals working to keep cities, airports, train stations, schools, shops, and workspaces safe,” said RealNetworks Latin America Vice President Jose Larrucea.
“It is a privilege to join forces with a partner like RealNetworks, which not only brings global capacity and technology experience but also provides local representation and support in Brazil and in other regional markets where Digifort operates,” added Digifort CEO Carlos Bonilha.
RealNetworks is an on-site security solution that can match millions of faces in real time. The platform can identify any unauthorized or suspicious individuals who appear on a network’s security cameras, and will also send alerts to security personnel to make it easier for them to monitor larger venues.
This is the second major deal for RealNetworks since the release of the company’s Q3 fiscal report. At the end of 2018, RealNetworks made inroads in the Chinese market thanks to a new partnership with Shenzhen Homtar High-Tech Co. The agreement with Digifort indicates that that upward trend is likely to continue into 2019.
