iView's integrated suite of security and surveillance software solutions assist not only by increasing productivity, but also in reducing the associated losses and managing risk by the rapid identification of individuals involved in loss, threat creation and other specific activities. Facial recognition is another layer that can help enhance security operations in areas where it is important to verify the identity of people entering or leaving a facility.

The iGWatch IP Facial Recognition System delivers an automated, active, real time surveillance and identification solution providing event driven alerts based on individuals under watch or excluded status. This biometric solution replaces manual systems such as operator comparison of surveillance subjects to "mug" books, while automating database searches against the iTrak subject information module. The iGWatch IP System generates colour coded operator alerts with a match confidence level and presents both the live and stored database images, enabling the operator to make the final identification decision. The iGWatch IP alerts are completely configurable to the level of detection & identification desired by means of the alert confidence level. Based on this confidence level, the system automates the subject database search, instantly narrowing down possible subjects from 1000's to one or more individuals in seconds. Once this match has been made, the full subject profile can be easily reviewed by simply double clicking the thumbnail image in the iTrak platform.

iGWatch IP is available for immediate delivery.
