FacePRO™ Facial Recognition System with Deep Learning Technology

Panasonic has launched its new deep learning facial recognition technology FacePROTM featuring a ‘deep learning’ core engine that has ranked as the industry’s most accurate in independent testing*.

FacePRO at Security ESSEN 2018

FacePRO will be on show in the Genetec stand (Hall 5, Booth #G30) at Security ESSEN 2018, the world’s most important trade fair for security in Germany. As a technology partner in the Genetec™ ecosystem, Panasonic will demonstrate the benefits of facial recognition with Genetec Security Center, engineered to benefit end-users with innovative solutions for security camera analytics.

High precision even in challenging environments

FacePRO can identify faces that are difficult to recognise within common video surveillance technology. These situations include reading faces at an angle of up to 45 degrees to the left or right or 30 degrees up or down, with a 90% accuracy rate when detecting faces partially hidden by sunglasses or face masks. FacePRO also has high accuracy reads in matching faces taken from up to ten-year-old passport images.

Cost reduction through best shot feature and easy setup

Panasonic’s Face Server technology makes use of the ‘iA (intelligent Auto) mode’ and ‘best shot feature’ within our i-PRO Extreme camera range. This means the camera automatically adjusts its settings to shoot optimal images. The iA function enables image analysis to be performed on the camera instead of the server. As a result, only the best images are sent, reducing server and network load and total system cost.

System expandability (up to 30,000 faces)

Jointly developed with the National University of Singapore, it provides a real-time processing capacity of up to 20 cameras per server and can execute high-speed searches of up to 30,000 registered reference faces.

Case Study
Panasonic's Facial Recognition Gate Selected by Ministry of Justice

Since October last year, three facial recognition gates have been in operation at Tokyo International Airport's immigration control. Without the need for prior registration of biometric data, the system compares photographic data of the traveller in the IC chip embedded in the person's passport with a photo taken at the facial recognition gate to verify the identity.

* In April 2017, the product achieved the highest level of facial recognition performance in the world in a comparison test (IJB-A Face Verification Challenge Performance Report/IJB -A Face Identification Challenge Performance Report) of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) of the United States, one of the most authoritative institutes in the world.
