NEC Provides Facial Recognition at the Seoul Sky Observatory in Lotte World Tower
- Preserving security at the world's 3rd highest observation deck -

TOKYO, June 28, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced that it has provided a facial recognition system to Seoul Sky, an observatory in Lotte World Tower, a 123-floor, 555-meter (1,823 ft.) high skyscraper located in Seoul, South Korea.

The system is used to monitor admittance to Seoul Sky, the world's third highest observatory, at a height of 500 meters. By utilizing NeoFace Watch, NEC's real-time facial recognition software featuring the world's highest recognition precision, the system detects people who are on pre-determined watch lists using footage from a camera installed at the entrance to the observatory. This contributes to keeping visitors safe and guarding the building efficiently. In the future, the detection of VIPs is also scheduled for the purpose of improving service quality.

"NEC has been engaged in the development of facial recognition technology for approximately 30 years. This technology has already been introduced into more than 100 systems in 40 countries. We aim to continue proposing innovative new solutions using facial recognition, both in South Korea and around the world. This contribution to achieving a safe, secure society will enable NEC to achieve global expansion while helping to ensure a more secure tomorrow," said Sukhwan Yoon, President, NEC Corporation of Korea.
