The first safe city project in India to use advanced face recognition technology

NEC India Pvt. Ltd. and NEC Corporation, together with Innovative Telecom & Softwares Pvt. Ltd., are deploying NEC's face recognition technology for Surat City Police in the Indian state of Gujarat.

Announcing this, the Network and IT solution provider said in a statement that NEC's NeoFace Watch for Live CCTV surveillance and NeoFace Reveal for forensic criminal investigation will be deployed for Surat City Police.

"We have found NEC's face recognition solution to be the most appropriate solution with respect to face detection and investigation, and it will help Surat Police resolve crime cases in a very speedy manner," said Rakesh Asthana, Indian Police Service, Police Commissioner of Surat City.

NeoFace Reveal is a software solution for forensic investigation that provides law enforcement and crime laboratory agencies with the ability to enhance poor quality latent face images, search against their mugshot databases, and locate potential suspects, while NeoFace Watch integrates with existing video surveillance systems and matches faces in real-time against a watch list of individuals to trigger an alert, NEC said in its statement.

Both technologies have been deployed successfully in numerous government agencies throughout the world, including  the US, UK and Singapore.
