Panasonic Introduces FacePRO Facial Recognition Server Software

April 10, 2018  | 

Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America, Security Group, has introduced FacePRO, a deep learning facial recognition system using extreme sensing and enhanced detection technology to identify persons of interest and alert authorities of their presence in real-time.

Visitors to ISC West, Booth 10037 will experience Panasonic’s core engine that the company claims has the world’s highest face recognition performance. FacePRO high-precision facial recognition software is made to identify faces that are difficult to recognize with conventional technologies, including faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, even those partially hidden by sunglasses. 

“By offering a diversified technology portfolio of end-to-end security and evidence management solutions like FacePRO, we keep communities safe,” said M. Faisal Pandit, SVP and Chief Digital Officer, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. “Panasonic continually delivers innovative, highly-integrated solutions to numerous end markets including law enforcement, transportation, and educational institutions.”

The new software, which fits into the Panasonic unified and secure ecosystem, features the "iA (intelligent Auto) mode" that automatically adjusts settings for the camera to shoot optimal images best suited for facial recognition. When used with Panasonic's i-PRO EXTREME series network cameras installed with the included “Best Shot License Key,” only the “Best Shots” will be sent to the server for facial recognition, according to the company. The combination of Panasonic core devices and the facial recognition software maximizes performance to achieve high-precision recognition. The company plans to add a function to recognize partially covered faces with a surgical mask, which is difficult with conventional systems, by the end of this year.

Additionally, using FacePRO software with cameras equipped with the iA function enables image analysis to be performed on the camera instead of the server to send only the best images to the server. According to the company, this will result in reducing server and network loads, which leads to overall system cost reductions. When 10 or more network cameras are connected to the system, the cost can be reduced by up to 50% compared to conventional systems that do not use the Best Shot function.
