Facial recognition CCTV system installed at Miami International Airport

Comments Off on Facial recognition CCTV system installed at Miami International Airport

A new concourse at Miami International Airport has been equipped with an advanced facial recognition CCTV system, which seems to represent the next phase in the US Customs and Border Protection agency’s expanding biometric border program, a news report has been able to suggest.

The Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) has announced that the airport’s Concourse E for international arrivals is the first airport concourse in the country to rely exclusively on expedited passport verification using facial recognition.

MDAD says that with its automated biometric screening technology, Concourse E sees as many as 10 travelers screened per minute; in a statement announcing the deployment, Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola asserted that the technology “has significantly reduced wait times for our international passengers.”

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).
