30 million criminal mugshots are now available for facial recognition searches by subscribing to Captis Intelligence.

IPVM Image

Plus, this service is integrated into Milestone XProtect.

We subscribed to Captis' service, connected to Milestone XProtect, to see how well it worked, including:

  • How accurate is the face recognition?
  • What faces are included in the database?
  • What face details does Captis identify?
  • What criminal data does Captis include?
  • What issues were found?
  • How does it compare to other facial recognition systems?
