Facial recognition CCTV surveillance system set to be deployed across Jamaica

Comments Off on Facial recognition CCTV surveillance system set to be deployed across Jamaica

Facial recognition CCTV surveillance systems are set to be deployed across Jamaica in a bid to improve public safety and security, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The “JamaicaEye” program will connect Ministry of National Security cameras and privately-owned cameras to a network to be monitored by security professionals. Video analytics will provide facial recognition, license plate identification, geofencing and crowd counting, among other features.

JamaicaEye Project Manager Major Sheldon Bryan told the Observer that roughly 180 cameras have been deployed across several parishes so far. “We need a lot more cameras to be a part of the system to increase our situational awareness as to what is happening across the space,” he said. “So, we are inviting now persons, who have digital camera systems (to partner with us).”

The Facial Recognition CCTV solution supplied by CCTV Surveillance dynamically compares images of individuals from incoming video streams against those stored in a predefined access control list and immediately sends alerts when a positive match occurs.

The technology yields a very good level of 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.

This biometric technology is the perfect solution to control the access to restricted security areas, especially since we’re talking about a completely automated system that requires very little interaction with the operator.

Our Facial Recognition CCTV system can be easily integrated with existing ID management products and enables administrators to easily create Whitelists/Blacklists for specific areas, while subjects can be very easily enrolled from one or more photographs.

The system fully supports runtime alarm management, is highly tunable (control based on time-frames, sequentially, etc) and even allows alarms to be exported to common formats (PDF, Excel) and remote devices (mobile, PDA, tablet, security control centre).
