BALTIMORE, MD and CONWAY, NH--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2012) - Animetrics, a leading developer of advanced 3D facial recognition and identity management solutions, announced today a partnership with security and surveillance systems solutions provider View Systems (PINKSHEETS: VSYM). Under terms of the agreement, View Systems will integrate Animetrics next-generation 3D facial recognition technology into its concealed weapons detection systems used for security screening at correctional facilities, stadiums, courthouses, schools, stadiums and other public facilities.
Utilizing Animetrics 3D facial recognition technology will provide a new layer of enhanced intelligent screening capabilities for View System's ViewScan weapon's detection systems, allowing security personnel to utilize non intrusive facial biometrics screening, analysis and identity verification within the solution. In combination with proprietary Views Systems technology for locating concealed weapons, the new system will be able to alert security personnel to immediate and potential threats in real time.
"By using the advanced 3D facial recognition features of Animetrics technology, and through immediate integration with existing security databases, the new systems provide a whole new level of security for both public arenas and high-level secure installations," said Gunther Than, CEO of View Systems. "And the systems remain affordable, an important consideration as public venues of all kinds enhance their own security. By partnering with Animetrics, View Systems can deliver a robust security screening system that utilizes best-in-class 3D facial recognition technology."
Paul Schuepp, President and CEO of Animetrics, commented, "Our partnership with View Systems will accelerate Animetrics facial biometric solutions use and acceptance in the commercial and enterprise market. View Systems solves real life problems and threats with their innovative products that are now widely deployed with state, federal and top tier organizations."
View System's Concealed Weapons Detector (CWD) is a walk-through portal which uses advanced magnetics technology to accurately pinpoint threat objects on a visual image of the subject. ViewScan uses advanced magnetics technology to visually locate threat objects on its video image. The system is sensitive enough to locate items such as hidden razor blades and cellular phones, but will ignore common objects such as coins, keys, and belt buckles. ViewScan portals are currently in use at leading correctional facilities, schools, arenas and stadiums, government agencies and courthouses facilities throughout the United States.
The initial objective is to integrate Animetrics facial identity management software onto View System's ViewScan, incorporating next generation facial recognition and investigative face biometric capabilities into this weapons detection and identification system. View System also plans to utilize Animetrics' cloud-based FaceR Identity Management System (FIMS cloud) and its suite FaceR facial biometric identity and screening applications Mobile ID, Credential Me and ForensicaGPS across its entire portfolio of security and surveillance systems and applications.
