Premier face recognition technologies for border control, airport security, people flow management, and biometric photo capture
Cognitec is the only company worldwide that has worked exclusively on face recognition technology since its inception in 2002. Experiencing steady growth at business locations in Dresden, Boston and Sydney, the company is proud to maintain a market-leading position within the industry, and to uphold the trust it has gained as a reliable, experienced provider of biometric technologies.
Cognitec’s product portfolio includes technologies for facial image database search, video screening and analytics, border control, and ICAO compliant photo capturing: FaceVACS-DBScan compares images from different sources to those stored in multi-million image databases; FaceVACS-VideoScan performs real-time identity checks to find known persons and alert the appropriate staff, while performing anonymous face recognition to count individuals, analyze demographics and track people flow; FaceVACS-Entry VS combines hardware for image acquisition with software for verification processes, and is ready for integration into eGates; and FaceVACS-Entry CS streamlines the capture of biometric ID photos during border crossing and ID issuance processes.
Independent evaluation tests continue to prove the outstanding performance of the company’s flagship FaceVACS® software. Compared against main competitors, Cognitec’s latest face matching algorithm showed excellent performance results across all accuracy tests in the Ongoing NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test 1:1, with lowest error rates for visa and mugshot images. The results stay within 0.5 %–1 % of the top-ranked competitor in each category. In the 1:N test, the algorithm achieved the best speed-accuracy tradeoff in comparison to competitive commercial technologies.
