Exacq "Facial Matching" Facial Recognition Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published Sep 03, 2020, 10:32am EDT

Exacq is claiming "Accurate Recall of Every Noteworthy Person of Interest" with their Tyco AI powered "Facial Matching", but how well does it work in real-world scenes?

IPVM Image

We tested Exacq Facial Matching examining:

  • How does it perform in real-world surveillance scenarios?
  • How often does it falsely identify a person as someone else?
  • Where does it miss faces / people walking through the scene?
  • Can it still recognize faces of people wearing masks, sunglasses, hats, hoodies?
  • How does it perform at night in low light (~2 lux) or dark/IR (~0.02 lux)?
  • Does it detect anything other than human faces?
  • Is the user interface easy to navigate?
