19 Facial Recognition Providers Profiled

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Apr 23, 2019

IPVM interviewed 19 facial recognition providers at ISC West to understand their claimed accuracy, success and positioning.

9 from China, where facial recognition has received the most significant recent support:

  • Dahua: "interest but not adoption"
  • Facego: Big parent company, poor marketing
  • Hikvision: Downplayed
  • Longse: Fac Rec "Just for Show"
  • Qualvision: "Frank Comments on NDAA, Face Rec Hype"
  • Sunell: Bold Claims
  • TVT: "that's gonna piss our customers off"
  • ZKTeco: Claims World’s Best Facial Recognition, Calls Hikvision “Cheap Chinese”

Note: China's most prominent facial recognition providers, SenseTime, Megvii Face++, and Yitu did not attend ISC West.

And another 11 outside of China, mostly US, with one each from Australia, Japan, Russia, South Korea and Taiwan:

  • Avycon: ''It Can Detect A Face"
  • Axxonsoft: Frank Comments on 'Accuracy' Ratings
  • Ayonix: Emphasis on Speed
  • Ever AI: Positions Itself As China/Russia Competitor
  • Deepcam: Selling $59 'Facial Recognition' Cams

  • Inaccurate ******** ******: many companies said their face rec software had "98%" or "99%" accuracy but were unclear about how they derived them or what that meant in real use. Given the vagueness, we would be skeptical.

  • ****: ******* ********* ****** ***** facial *********** ******** *** "GDPR *********", ** ********** claim ***** ** ******** can ****** *********.
  • Unsure ***** *** ****: IPVM heard frank comments from some distributors that most average customers didn't need facial recognition, with one describing it as more of an "industry trend" rather than a client-driven one.

  • Less ** **** **** *** ******* *******: Dahua and Hikvision's facial recognition displays were notably muted, with both booths giving significantly less play to the technology than in the past.
  • Wider ************: IPVM found one China-US company pushing face rec for retail at rock-bottom prices ($59 per camera with an $8 per month subscription) and another selling facial recognition recorders for less than $1,000, signs that a race to the bottom mentality has infiltrated facial recognition as well. However, how well those super low-cost facial recognition recorders work is questionable.

Both firms are increasingly competing with SenseTime and Face++ for big government projects, he said, claiming SenseTime was “very powerful” and likely offered the best facial recognition system in China. "Most [of SenseTime's R&D employees] are scientists, not engineers," unlike Hikvision, Wu said.

   -Optical ********* (**** *****): these are based on algorithm/pixel performance only. It can be used as black listing (Stadium, Retail, Vandalism) but it is not enough for white listing (ie: access control)

-Infra *** ********* (Suprema and others): these are based on Light emission + IR sensors + Algorithm + processing power. Advantage of IR are: distance 15cm  to 1.5m (it filters background and all related issues), works in any light conditions (unlike CCTV that can take a face with sun from the side), makeup/painting on face, Face Face/Images detection (easier than Optical). These ones are safe enough to be used for white listing (=access control).
