Changing the Face of Identity Recognition

The EclipseIR™ technology has the proven capability to detect multiple faces within a crowd and compare the detected faces against a database of face(s) to determine the likely hood of being the same person. Personal Appearance Biometrics enhance search capabilities by providing height determination, face tone, and clothes color analytics. Our technologies are designed to operate in difficult video environments such as surveillance. These technologies will be combined to work under our rule-based software application.

Powerful Facial Detection
EclipseIR™ has developed proprietary world-class facial detection capabilities, whose key differentiator is the ability to detect facial and identity characteristics in the adverse video conditions of the surveillance environments, often due to low-quality cameras, poor lighting, moving subjects, complex backgrounds, and partially visible faces. Moreover, the technology can detect multiple faces within a single video frame, often the case in security and surveillance environments. Most facial recognition systems require near passport-quality images of the perfect world. The EclipseIR™ technology is optimized for the imperfect world of surveillance video.

Advanced Face Matching and Identity Recognition
Once a face is detected the EclipseIR™ technology can compare to faces in a database of persons of interest or to faces in other live or stored video streams. System controls allow users to set acceptance thresholds to manage the match confidence levels.

Enhanced Video Search with Personal Appearance Analytics
EclipseIR™ stands alone by providing enhanced video searching of Personal Appearance Characteristics. This multi-modal biometric technique provides search criteria of height, upper body color, lower body color and skin tone. For example, if a witness saw a suspect who was short, with a red shirt, and light complexion, the EclipseIR™ system could search against that criteria to locate a small pool of potential suspects.

Alert Notification and Validation
Once a person of interest is identified, an on-screen alert notifies the security officer who can then validate the identity, and implement appropriate procedures. For example, if a known shoplifter is detected, security personnel may be dispatched to monitor the activities. Police could be notified if a wanted criminal is detected. Or, if the alert indicates a VIP, personnel may be sent to assist, thereby improving the customer experience.

Straight-forward enrollment
The EclipseIR™ systems make it easy to add people to the database. Once a face is detected in the gallery, simply select one or more detected images click the enroll button, and enter the personal information. The next time that person is detected and matched an on-screen alert will notify personnel.

Database Integration
External databases can be ingested to build an active person-of-interest database. In addition to facial templates for comparison, the database also maintains appropriate person of interest identity information, as well as reason of interest and support for immediate action to be taken in the event of a match.

Database Synchronization
System databases can be synchronized via a common server. This approach insures that each security officer or user is armed with up-to-date and accurate POI information to take immediate and appropriate action. When a user updates or makes a new enrollment at one site, the information is automatically synchronized, updating all other nodes. In the event of a network outage, each individual site is fully independently operational.
