ELKO to distribute Herta facial recognition software

ELKO announces cooperation with Herta, one of the world’s leading company in facial recognition solutions.
Under the agreement, ELKO ensures Herta software distribution in Romania and the Baltic states.

Herta Security has a growing customer portfolio which includes government, transportation, finance and sport event venues, where it deploys facial recognition-enabled IP cameras and security platforms without having to replace existing hardware.

Herta software is the result of a process of several years of R&D. A result is a unique software that is characterized by its speed, accuracy and ease of use. Herta has received numerous industry awards including “European Technology Award 2019” in the Software category.
Herta’s video surveillance solution, BioSurveillance, detects multiple faces in real-time, incorporates on-the-fly video enrolment, identifies previously trained individuals, and facilitates runtime management of alarms and individuals. BioSurveillance is the right solution to increase security in crowded environments such as airports, train or metro stations, shopping malls, sports stadiums, or urban centres.

BioSurveillance NEXT is a high-performance video-surveillance solution for facial recognition, specially designed for the simultaneous identification of subjects in crowded and changeable environments. Optimized for GPU architectures, it works 40 times faster than traditional systems (up to 150 fps) and works with very high-resolution video streams.
Based on the facial analysis, BioMarketing system allows parameters such as gender, approximate age, use of glasses and various other characteristics of facial expression to be recognized.

Using this tool, based on who is looking at the content at any given moment, the target audience can be identified and a target-specific advertisement screened.
Biometric access control is the perfect solution for controlling user access to physical locations such as buildings, offices, data centers, and restricted security areas in general.

Face biometrics is used to identify a user from access control lists and to verify their identity. Herta Security’s access control solution enables user management at runtime and allows users to be enrolled on-the-fly by video capture. This technology yields excellent performance despite partial occlusions of the face, the use of glasses, scarfs or caps, changes of facial expression, and moderate rotations of the face. Moreover, it does not allow users to be impersonated using photographs.
BioFinder makes it possible to search for a specific subject, through facial recognition, in one or various recorded videos. By working with GPU architectures, it manages to process at high speed all the images on the video of the object of analysis.

BioFinder is a product for which the application is centred on the forensic analysis or the classification of information, being useful amongst other situations in police environments and searches for suspects.
Herta is a world leader in the development of cutting edge facial recognition solutions. Based in Barcelona and with offices in Madrid, London and Los Angeles, the company offers fast, accurate, robust, end-customer oriented solutions for video surveillance, access control, and marketing requirements.

International projects include safe-cities, airports, train and metro stations, prisons, banks, casinos, sports stadiums, shopping malls, military, police and forensic applications. Herta has partners in 50 countries and more than 150 certified integrators globally.
