The VD8700 8MP face recognition analytic camera, recently released by Geovision, a world leader in surveillance, features on-board analytics as well as a facial recognition program. The device is able to capture faces and store those images to allow it to initiate alerts to the user if a certain person enters its view.
Geovision’s GV-VD8700 is a ‘Vandal Proof’ IP Dome camera featuring industry leading face recognition technology. Unlike some off-the-shelf solutions, this device features not only person/vehicle detection modes with analytics capabilities, but the power to identify personnel from a database. Up to 10,000 face profiles can be defined in the camera’s database. This database can also be categorized to meet various other needs in the corporate environment, including facilitating customer service, security management and more.
This camera’s facial recognition mechanism is effective within a relatively short distance of 4 meters, and is meant to be used in points of entrance to a facility, but it is able to detect up to 10 faces at a time. A recognition time of just 2 seconds allows quick identification of both VIP guests and potential intruders. Integrated with Geovision’s GV-VMS, this IP camera can also be used to trigger alerts based upon predefined rules, providing improved and reliable security management.
In its outdoor version, the camera features IK10 vandal resistance with IP66 ingress protection. In order to achieve a better compression ratio while still maintaining high-quality imaging at reduced network bandwidths, the camera supports the H.265 video codec. If intended to be used for night operations, this version of the camera is equipped with an IR effective distance of up to 40 meters. Wide Dynamic Range and Backlight Compensation allow the camera to detect faces in environments with drastic light contrast.
It is able to pan, tilt, and rotate on a 3-axis mechanism; pan 0-350 degrees, tilt 0-75, and rotate 0-340 degrees. It runs on Windows 10 and has support for mobile device access for iOS and Android. Storage is at 2GB for RAM, and 8GB for ROM. The camera can run stand-alone or connected to a Video Management Software (VMS).
Facial recognition and analytics gives an existing system a new edge. Large retail chains use this technology to identify shoplifters, capturing their face when they steal the first time, so that security can be alerted immediately to any time that individual returns. It could also be used on a door, front porch, or any place where you might want to know if a specific person is coming to, and if so, whether you would like to receive an immediate alert about it.
