The company that created RealPlayer is moving beyond media delivery and into the security space with a new facial recognition platform they have developed.
IPVM has written about the difficulties of FST, another face rec software provider that failed, and also about some of the problems with facial recognition in general.
The goal of their initiative, RealNetworks says, is to make schools safer and they are doing it by offering to give facial recognition capability to every K-12 school in the U.S. and Canada--and they are doing it for FREE.
What is the solution? How does it work? How can they afford to do it? In this report, we examine RealNetworks' history and financial problems, their free and claimed cutting-edge facial recognition solution, where it came from, how it has been tested and what schools stand to gain.
