IntelliVision Expands Facial Recognition as a Service Offering
IntelliVision has added Cloud service to its in-camera and on-server face recognition, enabling another enhanced level of control and management for installing security contractors.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — IntelliVision Technologies Corp., a provider of deep-learning video analytics software for smart cameras, announces that the latest version of its facial recognition technology now operates as a Cloud-based service, as well as on edge devices and on-premise servers.
“Face recognition is becoming a must-have security feature for smart homes and buildings, smart retail, transportation, access control and the gaming industry,” Krishna Khadloya, IntelliVision vice president of engineering and products, states in the announcement. “Our face recognition now gives system integrators the flexibility to implement facial detection and recognition in the Cloud, on servers, or at the edge, providing real-time results, and reducing bandwidth usage.”
The latest version of IntelliVision’s facial recognition technology is said to be capable of detecting at least 10 faces in less than one second with only 25% CPU usage on an Ambarella S5L-based camera. As many as 20 faces can be recognized in a single frame, according to the company.
In the Cloud-based Face Recognition as a Service (FRaaS), recognition time is sub-second and allows for additional analytics in the overall workflow where camera processing capacity is limited, the company states.
Facial recognition is part of the IntelliVision family of video analytics solutions that also includes object classification (humans, vehicles, pets, airplanes), intelligent motion detection, intrusion/perimeter watch, object left/removed, license plate recognition (ALPR/ANPR) and audio/sound recognition.
Nortek Security & Control (NSC) acquired IntelliVision Technologies Corp. in May for undisclosed terms.
IntelliVision’s artificial intelligence (AI) and video analytics solutions are said to provide actionable insights for security and monitoring in smart home, smart enterprise and smart city applications; business intelligence for smart enterprise and smart retail; and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for automobiles.
The company’s software includes licenses for dozens of patents and has been deployed globally in more than 4 million cameras from over 50 top tier brand customers and consumer electronics manufacturers.
Customers include Comcast, ADT, Netgear, Ring, Ambarella, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Dallmeier, DLink, Disney and Zebra.
