Vasco, what do you want to do? Catch bad guys in real time? See if employees leave early? And is this outside or inside? Lots of people? Just a few people?
If you can provide a few details, that would help us be more informative in our responses.
Panasonic has their own system that works with some of their cameras. Link
Other recommendations can be done after we get more details on a project.

3VR has nvr's that include facial recognition as part of the sytem and not an add on analytic. They work with Panasonic IP cameras too.
well as someone who has first hand experience with facial recongintion software Panasonic and other wise you could save money on the 16/32 channel NVRs as they support them (WV-NV200 and WV-NV300) Panasonic has a really awesome software package WV-ASF900 that Panasonic cant ever seem to fully release for sale.
now I have seen live demos of the ASF900, it is down right scary if you get a good shot with a camera how accurate it is.
the NVRS not so much they only support 1 or two cameras and the hardware really cant handle it anyway, so its hard to say if you can go in a full Panasonic solution.
Gentec has integration with Panasonic cameras with their systems though
I read every comment. And everyone is right
To begin: I'm a fan of PANASONIC facial recognition system. WJ-NV200 and WJ-NV300 have one channel of Facial Recognition. I have it on my company show room and it works fine
The problem is that each has only one channel. The WV-ASF900 software is very good, but very expensive for a small solution like the one i must make a Project/Proposal.
I need to have 5 or 6 facial recognition cameras on a building. This means i would need 6 NVRS. And also these NVRs are expensive adding to the full project. The WV-ASF900 solution is too expensive for such a small solution.
Conclusions: I need a software recognition platform, that can use the PANASONIC IP cameras and that must be in terms of pricing competitive. Only for 5 or 6 cameras.
Thats all. The solution is for a client in a dangerous country. He wants analytics and also FACIAL RECOGNITION
To be honest, this subject is still on project. I'm helping the client
on a solution.
The watch list is difficult to have an idea.
This is an hotel, capacity for 500 customers. Situated on an african country.
In summer perhaps from May to September full capacity.
But its hard to understand the full capacity.
I see that you guys are well versed in Panasonic's FacePro software, and I am not. But I can't help but ask why you think you need a NVR for each camera to do multiple real-time face recs?
Is the NVR even strictly needed for real-time rec? The docs say the 900 can handle 10 cameras at once, (or 20 with half the facebase). I would think that the one channel/per NVR limitation applies to face rec during playback, no?
If it does mean 1 real time per recorder, then it does seem ridiculous, since what is the recorder needed to do when the camera does the face detection and the pc does the recognition?
I really thank everyone for their comments and ideas.
I now have some ideas.
Durig night i emailed several FC companies:
HERTA SECURITY, WAVESTORE AND LUXRIOT
Just to have an idea of pricing
I will wait for pricing and them decide if i will use PANASONIC or not
And regarding PANASONIC facial recognition and to the ones that dont
It works very well and very fast on NVR and also on WV-ASF900
Good but expensive (WV-ASF900)
I have been watching the comments
And everyone is right
The only thing that is not correct is that WV-ASF900 is already beying sold.
I have it on my general price list. The cost of this (without adition licenses for WV-ASM200)
is like 7500 euros (base license) and then you have to add the license for the number of
cameras, more 1000 euros. The right price i dont have it. Its more or less.
But of course this solution is completely different from the 1 channel of the NVR.
On the last presentation that my company did for some clients the test of facial recognition
and it works very well.
Theoretically speaking, meaning I'm not actually suggesting this, but just curious whether this kludge from hell would even work at all:
Panasonic 4K camera on ch 1, pointed at 4K monitor that is connected to NVR displaying 4 1080p cameras in a quad.
- NVR not powerful enough
- Degrdation from additional D/A A/D makes recognition impossible
- Added camera/monitor is expensive,
- Lose channel specific face information
- Does NVR even support 4K face rec on 1 Ch?
