Facial Recognition

Embedding Leading Edge Visual Technology

At eConnect, Facial Recognition is the process of identifying or verifying the identity of a person using their face and is considered to be the most natural of all biometric measurements.  It captures, analyzes and compares patterns based on the person’s facial details. We use a three-step process to ensure the highest levels of accuracy:

  • Face detection – an essential step as it detects and locates human faces in images and videos
  • Face capture – transforms analog information (a face) into a set of digital information (data) based on the person’s facial features
  • Face match – verifies if two faces belong to the same person

The Facial Recognition system employs patented technology to provide operators with accurate facial identification reinforced with data analytics to stop financial crimes, detect unwanted patrons, recognize valued guests, and improve operational efficiency.  This unique solution integrates with all major gaming systems and works with existing video management systems.
