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 have proven the premier performance of the 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 latest version of Cognitec’s FaceVACS-Entry technology not only takes biometric photos, it now allows for their comparison against facial images retrieved from ID documents or databases. The process also includes presentation attack detection to ensure a live person interacts with the device.
The slim, light-weight device fits wide-ranging installation scenarios, including eGates, desks, kiosks, free-standing pillars, and border control booths. Instant camera positioning, active lighting, and responsive user guidance lead to optimal capturing conditions, accurate person authentication results, and fast processing times.
FaceVACS-Entry serves all applications that require the acquisition of standards-compliant photos, and the comparison of probe images against a live image or stored image data, such as access control, border control, and entry/exit programs. The combined service of photo capture and person verification saves travelers lots of time at the border, as they complete all immigration procedures in just a few seconds.
The device unites all the proven features Cognitec thus far developed for border control applications, equipping it perfectly for other identity management use cases. It includes Cognitec’s renowned software for ISO compliance checks. The company’s robust matching algorithm guarantees fast, accurate verification and identification results.
