Facial recognition is a biometric surveillance technology that measures and analyses the physical and/or behavioural characteristics of an individual for authentication, identification or screening purposes. The technology uses the unique configuration of a person’s facial features to accurately identify them, usually from a surveillance video. Compared to fingerprint or iris biometric systems, facial recognition is a non-contact and non-interaction process which allows face images to be captured from a distance.

Through video analytics applications which analyses video streams captured by surveillance systems, surveillance system operators, security organisations and corporates are able to make practical and effective use of their surveillance systems. Video Analytics applications can perform a variety of tasks ranging from real-time analysis of video for immediate detection of events of interest, to analysis of pre-recorded video for the purpose of extracting events and data, to extracting statistical data for business intelligence purposes.
