Tygart releases MXMOBILE™ FaceID System, bringing facial recognition capabilities to smartphones
Fairmont, WV, Aug 4 - Tygart Technology, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise grade video and photographic analysis and biometric recognition systems, today announced the launch of the MXMOBILE™ FaceID System, a significant advancement that will provide facial recognition capabilities on mobile devices. MXMOBILE enables government agencies to access the company's MXSERVER™ technology, a cloud-based face recognition system that efficiently processes vast amounts of video and photo collections, on agency-managed smartphones.
Until now, remotely identifying individuals in the field through biometrics has involved carrying large and expensive specialized equipment requiring data to be pre-loaded for individuals that might be encountered. MXMOBILE leverages the power and benefits of modern mobile technology to bring the same face recognition analytics capabilities of MXSERVER onto smartphones. This capability enables an individual located anywhere in the world to capture and upload a photograph and determine the identity of the subject within seconds.
"MXMOBILE represents a huge technological leap forward for agents in the field, providing them with the capability to identify individuals using facial recognition in virtually real-time," said John F. Waugaman, President, Tygart Technology. "This technology will provide identity intelligence information to law enforcement, defense, intelligence and national security organizations in a searchable, intuitive fashion, allowing them to make decisions in the field faster than ever before."
To use MXMOBILE, agents transmit images through the mobile application which are processed through MXSERVER using automated face detection and recognition technologies to match the faces in the photograph or video against watch lists. Almost instantly, MXSERVER offers a short, rank ordered list of options that best match the face depicted in the submitted image, along with any other relevant information, such as biographical information, known aliases and previous comments regarding the individual.
In addition to field use for the identification of persons of interest (POI), MXMOBILE can be used as a citizen policing tool, providing citizens the ability to upload videos and photographs of suspicious behavior. MXMOBILE is also a platform for evidence gathering; collecting, indexing and searching videos and photographs for future evidentiary use.
"In recognition of the constantly evolving needs of this community, Tygart has integrated scalable cloud-based technology into the application," added Waugaman. "This ensures that the system will be able to grow in parallel with the increasing demands of the future."
