LinuxPR: Visionics Broadens Availability of Its Face Recognition Technology

“Announces FaceIt® Datablade for Informix; FaceIt® for
LINUX”

“Visionics Corporation, the leading developer of face
recognition technology worldwide, announced today that it is making
available versions of its FaceIt® engine for a range of new
operating platforms. These include the Visionics Face Recognition
Datablade for Informix databases on SGI UNIX and C++ libraries for
LINUX operating systems.”

“Thus far the demand for face recognition has been mostly on
Win32 platforms, however the emergence of the LINUX operating
system as a serious alternative to Win NT has led to a growing
number of applications that require FaceIt® technology on
LINUX. These include corporate information security systems,
banking kiosks as well as database search engines for law
enforcement.”

“In addition, as face recognition moves beyond its validation
phase, the applications for the technology are becoming more
complex and massive in scale, requiring higher-end systems beyond a
single or small cluster of PCs. These include national identity and
voter registration programs for countries with hundreds of millions
of citizens and are typically subject to heavy throughput
requirements. Visionics is entering these markets by initially
offering its engine encapsulated into an Informix Datablade.”
