In March 2017, the U.S. Government Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a report  NIST8173 “Face in Video Evaluation (FIVE) Face recognition for Non-cooperative Subjects”.  They ranked our NEC NeoFace WATCH system as No.1.

In fact NEC NeoFace® WATCH:

  • has been ranked 1st in 4 independent tests for 8 years running;
  • determined that NEC has improved the most, leading further than other vendors;
  • it remains the most accurate since 2009 (MBGC 2009, MBE 2011, FRVT 2013, FIVE 2017); and
  • is the fastest with the highest number of searches/second (3.1 million+ searches/sec).
