Cognitec s face recognition software used at 17th CPC National Congress

(PresseBox) (Dresden, ) Cognitec Systems, Dresden in association with Internet Web Technology Ltd, Hong Kong, are proud to announce that Cognitec s state-of-the-art face recognition software has once again proved a reliable and successful tool for a premium security event - The 17th CPC National Congress that was held in Beijing in October 2007.

FaceVACS-Alert, a product designed to assist real-time face recognition video surveillance, was implemented to the customer s full satisfaction. Face recognition technology can be added to conventional video surveillance systems in order to identify persons in a watch list, by comparing faces in real-time video images against stored photographs. Cognitec s technology has proven to be one of the most reliable and best performing on the market.

This pivotal acknowledgement of the technical excellence of Cognitec s FaceVACS-Alert software by being used at such a prestigious National Security event speaks strongly for the robustness and the great performance rates that Cognitec s products offer. This is even more the case as the product was chosen after extensive tests, also using products of competing companies, under very stringent conditions.

"We are once again very pleased with the successful deployment of a video surveillance system that includes our face recognition technology," commented Alfredo Herrera, Cognitec s Managing Director. "It is an honor for us to be selected by the Government of the People's Republic of China for such an important event."
