NEC Participates In ISAF Security 2013



NEC Corporation today announced its participation in ISAF Security 2013, one of the most comprehensive security exhibitions in Turkey and the Middle East region, from 19 to 22 September 2013 at Istanbul Expo Centre, Turkey.

NEC will showcase a range of Public Safety Solutions at stand A850, Hall 9, including:

1.Facial Recognition Technology

NEC’s facial recognition technologies have been adopted globally for government, security and commercial applications, including law enforcement applications, immigration systems, and access control for important facilities. NEC’s facial image matching algorithms were recognized as the world’s fastest and most accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, commissioned by the United States Department of Homeland Security in 2010.

2.Hybrid Finger Identification Technology

NEC’s hybrid finger identification technology simultaneously scans both the fingerprint and finger vein pattern, making it particularly difficult for impostors to deceive the authentication system using it.

3.High Sensitivity Camera for Surveillance

NEC’s high sensitivity camera delivers high-quality, full-color video images even in full darkness. It offers sensitivity and quality ideal for outdoor night-time surveillance in important facilities such as harbors, airports, and refineries.

4.Behavior Analyzer

NEC’s Behavior Analyzer increases the speed and accuracy of suspicious activity detection and thus improves surveillance while reducing staff and equipment costs. Based on a video analytics solution that monitors behaviors and flags actions that are pre-determined as unusual, ‘Behavior Analyzer’ software automatically detects suspicious behavior such as intrusion, loitering, and object abandonment based on user-defined time and location parameters. It can distinguish between humans, shadows and moving objects.

5.Intelligent Meta-Surveillance Analysis System

NEC’s metadata search system is well suited for a wide range of applications, such as immigration and airport terminal security, shopping mall searches for lost children and any facilities requiring detection of suspicious persons.

In addition, NEC is organizing a Public Security seminar under the theme of “Safer Cities with NEC Solutions” on Thursday, 19 September from 15:00 to 17:00, in collaboration with Frost & Sullivan. During the seminar, various experts from NEC will present industry foresights and market insights, while demonstrating NEC’s best-in-class security technologies and solutions.

“For more than 40 years, NEC has been at the forefront of the Public Safety arena through its continued development of biometrics technologies that set the market standard in terms of their accuracy and speed,” said Hironobu Kurosaki, President, NEC Telecommunication and Information Technology. “Attendees to our stand will see NEC’s commitment to building safer and more reliable communities through our technological innovation.”
