Facial Recognition CCTV Technology Tested for Biometric Border Security Systems


Tensor – experts in CCTV  maintenance, systems takeover, design and deployment

Facial Recognition CCTV Technology is being tested by multiple border authorities around the world who are planning to potentially integrate it with their biometric border security systems, a news report has revealed.

The Canadian government is one of the most important one testing out facial recognition technology. The work is being led by the Canadian Border Services Agency in collaboration with the University of Quebec, with the system in question designed to scan the faces of travellers captured on video cameras and compare them against criminal and terrorist databases. The aim is to immediately and automatically identify individuals who could pose a security threat.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has also successfully trialled facial recognition CCTV technology at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. Their integrated system will enable the automatic comparison of travellers’ faces with the images depicted on their electronic passports.

Tensor – international experts in the deployment of facial recognition CCTV identification systems

Tensor has an extensive experience in installing facial recognition CCTV systems and commissioning comprehensive video management solutions for large multi-site facilities. Our expertise and technical know-how enables us to easily integrate video surveillance into other security systems including ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), Access Control and Facial Recognition CCTV to name a few, in order to enhance and improve the security and efficiency at your site.

Tensor face biometrics are used to identify users from access control lists and verify their identity. Our access control solution facilitates user management at runtime and allows users to be enrolled on-the-fly by video capture.

Facial recognition CCTV technology yields excellent performance despite partial occlusions of the face, the use of glasses, scarves or caps, changes of facial expression, and moderate rotations of the face. Moreover, it does not allow users to be impersonated using photographs. Tensor biometric technology is the perfect solution to control the access of personnel to restricted security areas.
