A next generation security solution targeted at enhancing surveillance and security capabilities at mega events, such as international sports competitions, is among the many solutions that the company will introduce with its partner.
Mega events often pose extensive security challenges to the host cities. Traditional methods of securing event venues and crowd control are no longer adequate given the sophistication of criminal groups who are aiming to disrupt event proceedings. Advance intelligence and on-the-spot intelligence are of paramount importance for organizers to gain situation awareness.
NEC will showcase, with its partner 3D-4U Inc., a security system targeted at mega events. The system uses the latest technologies in virtual reality, computer graphics, data processing, media, and social media to create an ultra-modern, end-to-end secure, 2D/3D video surveillance solution.
This first-of-its kind technology platform streams video in ultra-high resolutions to an unlimited number of personnel and provides each the ability to view, control, and share their own unique view as needed. By combining the images and video captured and distributed through the proprietary 3D Panoramic Cameras (180 or 360 degrees) with input from various analytics engines, such as face recognition and behaviour detection, the solution provides venues with comprehensive smart monitoring capabilities in real-time and on-demand. This combination will greatly enhance the effectiveness of security personnel in supporting the operation and security control of mega events.
NEC has extensive experience and expertise in offering security solutions to governments around the world, including biometrics identification solutions that have been used by more than 500 customers in some 40 countries. In addition, NEC's video surveillance and video analytic capabilities have achieved success in important South American markets. NEC has also participated as a leader of one of the four consortiums in the Singapore Safe City Test bed. Making use of an array of sensors and a unique fusion of information from the ground and cyberspace, the consortium developed an innovative series of safe city solutions. With the wide range of Public Safety solutions and technologies it provides, NEC can help Law Enforcement agencies maintain safety within its cities or at mega events.
Solutions to be exhibited at the event include:
1. Inter-Agency Collaboration and the 3D-4U System
NEC's Inter-agency Collaboration Framework, including the 3D-4U system, uses advanced technology to address the complex issues of collecting, analyzing and transmitting large amounts of data across agencies. With the help of actionable analytics, agencies can achieve better situation awareness which will help them provide appropriate responses to a wide range of events.
2. Facial Recognition Solutions
NEC will showcase its world's No. 1 rated face matching technology [ranked top in speed and accuracy in the FRVT2013 tests conducted by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)]. Three products using this core engine will be demonstrated.
