Taiwan-built facial detection camera debuts at IT Month show

Taipei, Dec. 6 (CNA) A new facial recognition system for surveillance cameras developed by Taiwan-based AndroVideo Inc. that could make security systems more responsive made its debut at the 2017 Information Technology Month exhibition that opened Wednesday.

The system, which can detect, identify faces and feed face data in 1.5 seconds, offers a major advantage over existing systems that require a camera, a broadband Internet connection and a server to recognize and identify faces, the company said.

AndroVideo uses artificial intelligence software directly built into the end device to achieve the same result, and cameras using its AI empowered camera can recognize up to 10 faces simultaneously in 1.5 seconds, according to the company.

The facial-recognition software can detect frontal faces and faces in different poses, such as profiles, up to a distance of four meters, said the company, which sees the technology as making a store's security and marketing more responsive.

It said the clear resolution provided by the software will make it possible to immediately detect and follow people who have been blacklisted from a store or quickly recognize VIP customers so that staff can provide special service when they visit a shop.

AndroVision, which describes itself as an artificial intelligence (AI) camera IIOT (Industrial Internet of Things) company, is invested in by surveillance system maker GeoVision Inc., a Taiwan-based listed company.
