Samsun, a scenic province in the north of Turkey, will host the 2017 Summer Deaflympics from 18-30 July, featuring more than 5,000 participants from 109 countries across 21 categories.

The secure access control solution was designed, developed, implemented and tested jointly by NEC Telecommunication Information Technology and its local partner MIA. The solution includes 30 NEC face recognition checkpoints that verify the identities of participants and ticket holders, by referencing a database of photos that are provided in advance of the events. The solution features immediate response time and the world's highest matching accuracy(1).

"NEC's security and access control solutions have been successfully implemented for law enforcement agencies and large-scale facilities throughout the world, including major airports and stadiums," said Tomoki Naka, Managing Director, NEC Telecommunication and Information Technology.

"Implementing NEC's face recognition, recognized as the world's most accurate, at user-friendly security access control points has allowed us to provide this event with the fastest and most reliable ID and verification system of its kind," said Ali Gokhan Belekin, General Manager, MIA Technology.
