Biometric facial recognition technology will accurately process many faces concurrently via a range of network cameras.
Organisations are deploying facial recognition systems to identify known offenders or to register suspects and have the ability to automatically compare the images with watch lists in order that the appropriate action can be promptly taken.
Beside capturing and comparing images of suspects for applications in airports, banks, casinos, retail and law enforcement, facial recognition systems can also be deployed to identify customer gender, age range and demographics, allowing retailers to profile their customer base, providing the capability to deliver relevant advertisements in a targeted manner.
Biometric facial recognition can also be used as a secure form of access-control, reducing the risk of lost or stolen I.D. cards being misused.
