NEC Corporation of America, Inc. Releases Latest Version of NeoFace Facial Recognition Identification Technology

NEC Corporation of America, Inc. announced the release of its facial recognition algorithm that scored top honors in NIST FRVT 2013 testing. This latest NeoFace product release is available in law enforcement investigative and real time surveillance solutions as well as NeoFace Match, a comprehensive facial recognition integration tool for solutions integrators and qualified customers. The latest NeoFace release delivers proven and significant performance metrics in a variety of applications, including non-frontal facial images with partial angles, low-resolution images, improved identification in uncontrolled environments, and increased matching rates, especially to very large databases. A summary of NeoFace’s performance in the latest NIST benchmark includes: 28% improvement in accuracy in comparison to NeoFace’s previous release, 8 times fewer errors than the next high performing algorithm, NEC's face recognition algorithms were faster than all participating vendors and the authentication error rate by 2/3 in "one-to-one" face matching tests. NEC offers a full range of facial recognition solutions built upon its award winning, NeoFace face recognition algorithms. In the realm of public safety, NeoFace algorithms are at the heart of NeoFace solutions. Using images and video evidence of varying quality, NeoFace Reveal enables law enforcement to investigate, solve crimes and bring more offenders to justice by accurately searching mug photo databases. For real-time surveillance applications, NeoFace allows for rapid and accurate searching of a known watch list, providing an alert when a face is detected. Border and immigration control, perimeter and office security as well as retail loss prevention are among the extensive use cases of NeoFace applications.

NEC Corporation of America and SYNNEX Corp. Introduce Store-in-a-Box, a Retail Solution

NEC Corporation of America, Inc. and SYNNEX Corporation introduced the “Store-in-a-Box” solution, a new retail solution that combines the VP5 Touchscreen point of sale (POS) system with Bepoz POS software to provide small-to-medium-size (SMB) retailers with an all-in-one, simplified, cost-effective POS solution. With the Store-in-a-Box solution, NEC and SYNNEX have put together a solution that includes a VP5 POS that comes pre-loaded with Bepoz software to make setup, installation and configuration easy for SMB retailers. This compact system includes several features typically available on higher-priced POS solutions, including an Intel® Celeron® Quad Core CPU, a stylish bezel-free monitor, three versatile mounting options to fit various types of store operations and coming equipped with Embedded POSReady 7. Additionally, the easy-to-maintain VP5 POS uses a fan-less design, which delivers quiet operations and reduces costs and failures. The Store-in-a-Box solution is ideal for retail, hospitality, and quick-serve and full service restaurants. The Store-in-a-Box solution will be available for purchase from SYNNEX Corporation in the fall of 2015. NEC and SYNNEX will be demonstrating the new Store-in-a-Box solution at the RetailNOW15 show, Aug. 2-5, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando.

NEC Corporation of America and Dell Inc. Announce New Distribution Agreement

NEC Corporation of America announced that the NEC ProgrammableFlow® Controller has been verified compatible with the Dell Inc. S-Series of high performance managed switches. The interoperability of the two products: creates a high-performance Ethernet fabric that provides the needed throughput to meet the demands of new applications and services; enables network virtualization to unlock service agility without the need for encapsulation; delivers network service virtualization through a flow-based network policy management; provides end-to-end visibility with automatic network discovery and configuration. Network administrators leverage NEC’s SDN technology to achieve greater service agility through network automation and are able to control costs by consolidating network equipment. NEC ProgrammableFlow SDN solutions simplify network operation and increase network visibility, improving service levels by fine-grained control and visibility of network traffic. The new distribution agreement will allow Dell to resell the ProgrammableFlow Controller Software as one of the software options sold with Dell’s networking hardware. Dell’s S4810, S4820, S5000 and S6000 series of switches running Dell OS9 have been verified compatible with the NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller version 6, with additional validation of Dell switches planned.
