Frost & Sullivan has conferred the 2019 Global Customer Value Leadership Award on Cognitec’s facial recognition technology.

The company has designed FaceVACS technology for face recognition products, including FACEVACS- DBScan ID, FaceVACS-DBScan LE, FaceVACS-VideoScan, FaceVACS-Entry, and FaceVACS-PortraitAcquisition.

Cognitec’s FaceVACS-VideoScan products determine the age and gender of the people seen by video cameras. This solution can perform anonymous facial analysis that allows the software to count people, detect movement patterns, and identify frequent visitors and individuals in crowds. Furthermore, a ‘smaller footprint’ algorithm present in the engine allows customers to build FR applications specifically for mobile devices.

The technology is an accurate verification of people from images or videos. It supports the investigation process and enables prevention of fraudulent activities. The product features a mix of smart hardware that captures images and checks for a live person, with cutting-edge software that facilitates verification of live images against those saved in ID documents, even in databases. FaceVACS-PortraitAcquisition, the high-quality images are produced as per ISO 19794-5 standard for a complete frontal photo.

Cognitec announced the introduction of its upgraded B12 face matching algorithm which ranked on the leaderboard of the latest evaluation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). All Cognitec products are using this leading matching algorithm.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company’s unique focus on augmenting the value that its customers receive, positive customer service, and customer base expansion.
