Digital Barriers launches first live facial recognition system for body-worn cameras

law enforcement Digital Barriers has launched the world s first live facial recognition system for body-worn law enforcement cameras. SmartVis Identifier, which brings together Digital Barriers video-streaming platform EdgeVis and analytics solution SmartVis, is targeted at the defence, security and law enforcement markets. It provides real-time facial recognition against multiple watch lists and databases.

Already available for standard smartphones, SmartVis has been adapted to run live on Digital Barriers body-worn cameras that are designed for frontline law enforcement. SmartVis facial recognition has been designed to do the job that traditional facial recognition systems cannot: to work in the real world, in real time, says Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers. Never before has frontline policing been offered live facial recognition on the type of everyday body worn cameras now being widely deployed. Customers at the forefront of security and defence have already deployed this technology and describe it as a game-changer . embedded content Able only to record, not live stream, footage, most body-worn devices are effective for evidence management after the fact, but cannot aid in the protection of officers if they are put in harms way as incidents unfold. EdgeVis delivers low latency and low bandwidth streaming, including over-the-air access to device recordings and GPS locational data. SmartVis Identifier supports, when required, every interaction, every stop and search, every arrest with real-time facial recognition. Digital Barriers says the solution removes human error and plugs resourcing gaps, thereby broadening the scope of facial recognition deployments. SmartVis Identifier will be available alongside EdgeVis on Digital Barriers body-worn devices and for selected service providers and camera/device manufacturers under licence.

Digital Barriers provides zero-latency streaming and analysis of secure video and related intelligence over wireless networks. To reduce bandwidth consumption the company harnesses a mixture of cellular, satellite, IP mesh and cloud networks. Founded in 2009, the company has its origins in military applications but now sells fixed and mobile solutions for covert, remote and wide-area deployments to law enforcement and the commercial security industry too.

ComNet enhances cybersecurity for port connections

IFSEC exhibitor ComNet Europe, part of the US manufacturer or transmission and communication networking equipment ComNet Communication Networks, has introduced a new cybersecurity feature in its latest generation of self-managed switches. Known as Port Guardian, the feature has the capability to physically disconnect a port if unauthorised access is detected. Port Guardian can provide a line of defence in situations where network access is attempted by disconnecting an IP-addressable device on the edge in order to connect to the network.

Port Guardian senses the disconnection activity and in response an SNMP notification is sent to the head end. The affected port is physically locked out, preventing access. The network administrator can reopen the port once the threat is eliminated. The Port Guardian feature also rejects access through an activity known as spoofing by disconnecting the port when an interruption is sensed. Port Guardian is being added to the newest generation of ComNet SMS products, including the CNGE2+2SMS and CNGE4+2SMS. The feature will also be available on the new ComNet USA-made line of managed switches. According to Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe managing director: Cybersecurity is not something confined to just a security IP network. Any network can be infiltrated. By introducing this valuable feature on these cutting-edge products, we can provide another unmatched advantage to our partners.
