German facial recognition firm Cognitec have announced that new video screening and analytics technology has been added to its FaceVACS-VideoScan solution.

The new technology allows users to perform complex searches both on persons appearing in real-time camera streams and in stored media files.

Detailed investigations can be launched using imported sets of video and image files.

Cognitec gives the example of police uploading videos recorded at a specific location and time to track possible participants in a crime.

Users can also find a person enrolled in an image database or search for an unknown person and locate their appearances in multiple videos. Person searches can also make use of filters that specify age ranges, gender, ethnicity and glasses.
