Cognitec is the only company worldwide that has worked exclusively on face recognition technology since its inception in 2002. Experiencing steady growth at business locations in Dresden, Boston and Sydney, the company is proud to maintain a stable, market-leading position within the industry, and to uphold the trust it has gained as a reliable, experienced provider of biometric technologies. Various independent evaluation tests continue to prove the outstanding performance of our FaceVACS® software. Cognitec’s portfolio includes products for facial image database search, recorded video investigation, real-time video screening and people analytics, border control, and biometric photo capturing.
The FaceVACS-VideoScan product detects people’s faces in live video streams and enables anonymous facial analysis to count and track individuals, generate demographical information, find frequent visitors and detect crowds. The software also compares faces to image databases and identifies known individuals. Retail staff can react in real time to greet valued customers, observe or react to known shoplifters, and stop banned persons from entering.
