Cognitec’s face recognition technology successfully deployed in several video surveillance systems developed by AxxonSoft

Partners highlight ongoing successful partnership

(PresseBox) (Dresden/Moscow, ) Cognitec Systems, Dresden and AxxonSoft, Moscow would like to underline the fruition of their successful partnership that has developed over the last two years.Since first supplying video surveillance products using Cognitec’s FaceVACS face recognition software, AxxonSoft has already compiled a respectable list of satisfied customers all over Europe.

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.

Some of the most important AxxonSoft installations include, for example, a Cash & Carry Superstore in Kemerovo, Russia. The objective there was to install a face recognition assisted video surveillance system in order to identify shop lifters. Already during the testing period, this system provided the basis for tracking and arresting criminals in a very efficient way.

Another system is in place at a gaming club in Kemerovo, Russia. The general purpose there was to monitor a four storey building complex with a large quantity of rooms all catering for different purposes such as billiard rooms, bar with cash desk, offices, warehouse, and rooms for security staff as well as the stairs, entrances and parking area.

A project at the subway in Novosibirsk, Russia has also proved successful. Station "Ploshad’ Lenina"was supplied with "Face-Axxon", developed by AxxonSoft, consisting of four facial capturing and one facial recognition module. High definition color cameras are being used for the face capturing process. This installation was started in 2004 by the Main Internal Affairs Directorate. The reason then was the increasing threat by terrorist attacks. It was the first project of this kind in Russia.

"We are very pleased with the successful deployments of various video surveillance systems by AxxonSoft that include our face recognition technology," commented Alfredo Herrera, Cognitec’s Managing Director. "We think that video surveillance is one of the major applications for face recognition, and we keep investing into research and development in order to keep our technological leadership position."
