Axxon Face Search Tested

By: Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Oct 26, 2018

AxxonSoft has brought facial recognition to their Axxon Next VMS for free with the simply named Face Search, claiming to allow users to find subjects across multiple cameras to drastically cut search time.

ipvm tested 2

In this report, we provide our full test results on Axxon's Face Search, examining:

  • How many false negatives or positives to expect?
  • How well does the analytic handle subjects looking down or away from the camera?
  • How does recognition perform in low light, <1 lux with IR, and WDR scenes?
  • How does Face Detection impact CPU usage?

Readers interested in facial recognition should also see our recent test of Dahua's Face Recognition Camera, the HF8242FN-FR.
