The Faceprint is the digital representation of characteristics of a face that can be used to identify a person’s face through a Face Recognition system, which has emerged as an attractive solution to address many contemporary needs for identification and the verification of identity claims. It brings together the promise of other biometric systems, which attempt to tie identity to individually distinctive features of the body, and the more familiar functionality of visual surveillance systems.
Face capturing can be via a still or video camera without the knowledge of a person with identification capabilities over a long distance, which are attractive features of this technology that can be incorporated into existing good quality CCTV systems. However, locating a face in a stream of a video is not a trivial matter and requires good positioning for the cameras.
The capturing stage involves face detection and extraction from a person’s image followed by a normalization process in to convert the face into a ‘template’ stored in the database. In an identification application, if there is a “match” of a video stream photos and the database gallery, an alarm solicits an operator’s attention to verify the match and initiate the appropriate actions. Therefore, Face Recognition is the perfect solution for crowded places where surveillance is required and suspects are a potential target.
