NEC Facial Recognition Adopted by Major Cities Across Georgia

TOKYO, July 28, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) today announced that it has provided an advanced surveillance system for cities utilizing facial recognition to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, in cooperation with Capital Systems LLC, a leading system developer.

The system utilizes NeoFace Watch, NEC's real-time facial recognition software for video, featuring the world's highest recognition precision(1). It checks images captured by CCTV cameras against pictures of suspects and others registered in a watch list, making it possible to identify figures rapidly and accurately.

This system was introduced as part of Georgia's "Safe City, Safe Region, Safe Country" program aiming to improve public safety. Georgia also plans to install tens of thousands of additional cameras nationwide in the future.

"By offering city surveillance systems that are enhanced with facial recognition technology, we are contributing to proactive crime prevention and efficient criminal investigations," said Tomoki Naka, Managing Director, NEC Telecommunication and Information Technology. "NEC is committed to providing valuable solutions for society, and we will continue proposing innovative new solutions using face recognition, both in Georgia and around the world."
