Tygart Releases New Version of Facial Recognition Technology, Provides Near Real-Time Analysis Capabilities

Solution Offers Enhanced Forensic Video and Photo Functionality for Defense, Intelligence, National Security and Law Enforcement Agencies

FAIRMONT, WV--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) -  Tygart Technology, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise grade video and photographic analysis and biometric recognition systems, today announced the release of their MXSERVER technology. MXSERVER is a cloud-based face recognition system that processes vast amounts of video and photo collections, quickly transforming files extracted from captured computers, cell phones, SIM cards and video surveillance systems into searchable resources. The latest version of the MXSERVER technology delivers upgrades to the solution's functionality, user interface (UI) and security.

MXSERVER provides investigators and analysts with the capability to analyze video; manage and distribute large media collections via the Internet; and screen and monitor video surveillance to quickly identify "persons of interest." MXSERVER facial recognition automatically finds, extracts and matches faces from very large media collections, including those stored in disparate or disconnected systems. It is designed to deliver fast and accurate results through automated forensic processing and analysis. MXSERVER is used by law enforcement to monitor large-scale events, process live surveillance feeds identifying potential threats and conduct investigative analysis following a terrorist attack or criminal act.

"Government agencies tasked with the mission of public safety and national defense are confronted with shrinking budgets that limit the resources available for manual forensic video and photo analysis," said John F. Waugaman, President of Tygart Technology. "This timesaving video analytics technology enables agencies to search thousands of hours of video footage and millions of photographs housed in big data collections in just minutes."

MXSERVER v2.7 is a significant upgrade to prior versions, improving back-end video/photo processing and face search speed and reliability. Numerous functional enhancements have been made which simplify and expedite video/photo analysis and biometric enrollment. Major improvements include:

  • Faster Face Search and Enhanced Scalability - face search speed is ten times faster -- in large part because of MXSERVER's new distributed "in memory" search capability. The search space is now evenly distributed across MXSERVER's cloud of search workers which also improves the system's scalability. MXSERVER supports very large face galleries containing 10 million+ subjects.
  • Expanded Support of Additional File Types and Partially Corrupt Content - Tygart added a second video processing SDK to deliver more robust handling of partially corrupt videos and new/additional video and image file formats. Videos that can only be partially processed (those with corrupt segments) will no longer fail processing, and will still retain partial results.
  • Enhanced Face Export - users can now define a minimum face size threshold when exporting face samples. Only those face samples greater than the user defined minimum pixel width (as measured between the eyes) will be exported.
  • Support for Multiple Watchlists - organizations can now easily create, manage and search multiple watchlists.
  • Batch Face Search - face search requests can now be submitted in large batches and can be cancelled, deleted and prioritized via an interactive search queue management module.

The MXSERVER upgrade also includes enhanced security. Agencies are now able to limit personnel access through the addition of a "view only" user privilege classification, as well as an added quality control option, which requires a second user to confirm face matches. "The ability to quickly, effectively and securely identify suspects after an incident or even help prevent one before it occurs is invaluable for law enforcement. We work with agencies at all level of government to deliver these advanced capabilities," added Waugaman.
