Face FirstSamsung Techwin America, Ridgefield Park, N.J., is partnering with FaceFirst LLC. to supply megapixel video surveillance cameras for its FaceFirst facial recognition system. The FaceFirst product platform uses Samsung cameras to complement its proprietary facial recognition software system. Facial images captured by the cameras are automatically matched with watch list photos and when a person of interest is identified, alerts are instantly sent directly to pre-provisioned computers, cell phones or cash registers.

The FaceFirst true biometric facial recognition platform features cloud-ready software and offers functionality that is affordable, scalable, and can be custom-configured to specific business requirements. The system allows users to select the facial databases they want to use and a familiar Web-based portal allows users with little or no training to self-provision biometric enrollments, alerting, and notification preferences.

The military-grade FaceFirst system identifies individuals matching client records at the rate of millions of comparisons per second. It is ideal for transportation facilities and sports arenas or for entrances where people normally pass through without stopping — at school and college campuses, corporate headquarters, financial institutions, warehouses and hospitals.

“The Samsung megapixel cameras deliver real-world environment performance, making them the perfect choice for this application,” said Frank De Fina, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Samsung Techwin America. “The combined package provides a better and faster tool for today’s security practitioners.”
