Views: 21

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking, biometric and advanced recognition solutions, today launched the NeoFace® Express facial recognition solution, a key component of a rapid-access biometric platform. The solution is based on NEC’s world renowned NeoFace facial recognition technology. The product is being demonstrated at NEC Booth 101 at the Connect:ID Global Exhibition in Washington, D.C.

NeoFace® Express represents a new class of facial recognition-based access control system setting the stage for the future of travel, access, and identity recognition. Its unique capabilities are the result of NEC’s years of research and global deployment experience in high throughput identity validation. With its robust capture process and sleek design, NeoFace® Express delivers frictionless, seamless enrollment, verification and identification in a variety of settings, such as airports, border management, stadiums, ports of entry/exit, amusement parks, enterprises and other high-demand, high-traffic areas.

“Having selected facial recognition as the most convenient means of implementing biometric exit system1 and the growing need for similar applications in other verticals, NEC is proud to now offer NeoFace Express,” said Raffie Beroukhim, Senior Vice President, Advanced Recognition Systems division, NEC Corporation of America. “Combined with NeoFace, NEC now has the most accurate, cost effective and convenient platform for implementing rapid, facial recognition-based access control systems allowing for movement from an unsecured to a secure location with minimal friction.”

NeoFace® was recently validated as the highest-performing algorithm in the Face in Video Evaluation (FIVE) by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Over the past seven years, NIST has consistently ranked NEC as the top provider of facial recognition algorithms because they are the most resilient to various viewing angles, low-resolution images and poor image quality.

As with NEC’s other advanced recognition systems and solutions, NeoFace® Express is supported by NEC’s U.S.-based Customer Service Center, which offers comprehensive 24-by-7 multi-tier customer support staffed by highly experienced engineers. This support includes problem tracking and resolution, as well as advanced remote diagnostics.
