Augmented Vision supports security officers in identifying
persons of interest in real-time, and helps speed up post-event
investigations. This latest cutting-edge technology from IDEMIA will
enhance security in transport hubs (airports, stations…), stadiums and
arenas, retail and commercial buildings, as well as gaming and
entertainment sites that face growing security challenges.

The application is based on IDEMIA’s long-standing expertise in deep
learning and biometrics for video and image analysis including IDEMIA’s
facial recognition technology: a longstanding best-in-class combination
of efficiency, scalability and accuracy for facial recognition as
evidenced by IDEMIA’s leading position in the most recent NIST

Augmented Vision can be easily integrated into any
infrastructure, for example into an existing video management solution,
or an access control system:

  • Video analytics – with live video feeds from standard CCTV
    cameras located in public or private areas, IDEMIA helps enhance
    security through a direct alert if a person of interest is detected.
    The alert functionalities will also significantly reduce time needed
    for video and image analysis during post-event investigations.
  • Access control – if a person of interest tries to enter an
    unauthorized area, the security system can automatically deny access.
    Identifying a number of people can also be used to grant access, for
    example by allowing employees or VIPs to enter certain secure areas.

“Augmented Vision leverages all of IDEMIA’s latest technologies to
offer a complete and accurate solution based on our leadership in
biometric capture and analysis as well as real-time video data analysis.
With this new analytics application, we enhance security, increase
throughput while improving user experience”,
explains Philippe
Barreau, IDEMIA Executive Vice President of the Public Security &
Identity Business Unit.

“With Augmented Vision, we give our Partners the capability to
capitalize upon existing video surveillance infrastructures with
biometric access control. It paves the way for our next facial
recognition-based innovations for access control and time & attendance
Yves Portalier Executive Vice President of the
Connected Objects Business Unit.

Visitors to IFSEC International (ExCeL London, June 18 – 20) will have
the opportunity to discover Augmented Vision* on stand IF3130,
where IDEMIA will showcase its full range of solutions for Access
Control and Time & Attendance. An Augmented Vision Experience
and Hospitality suite will host more demonstrations with real-life
scenarios, to offer visitors a truly immersive experience.
