Vuzix Blade Facial Recognition Capabilities for Security Operations to be Showcased at the Global Security Exchange
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses will be showcased, along with NNTC's iFalcon Face Control Mobile and VisionLabs' AI-powered recognition engine, at Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019 in Chicago on September 8-12. GSX is a premier security conference and expo that brings together security professionals from all major market verticals worldwide.
iFalcon Face Control Mobile, the world's first fully autonomous mobile face recognition system, can work without connecting to an external datacenter, bringing face recognition capabilities whenever and wherever its needed. Currently, iFalcon Face Control Mobile is being used by public safety organizations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (the "GCC"), an alliance of six countries in the Arabian Peninsula that includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses are used with the iFalcon system to screen crowds to match faces against a database of violators, missing people or suspects. Once there is a match, the solution retrieves relevant information from the database and instantly sends a visual alert to the user via the Blade's display. iFalcon runs on an algorithm by VisionLabs, which is in the top three in terms of the recognition quality according to global ratings such as the Face Recognition Vendor Test compiled by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST FRVT) and Labelled Faces in the Wild.
"The iFalcon system paired with the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses provides up to eight hours of continuous operation and the portable database can store over one million unique faces," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. "Due to a fast recognition speed of 15 faces per video frame in less than a second, the system proves effective in crowded environments, including but not limited to sports facilities, public events, transportation hubs and shopping malls."
The Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses will be on display and demonstrated with iFalcon Face Control Mobile at the VisionLabs stand located in the South Building, Level 3 - Exhibit Hall A – #271.
