Combined Solution to Enhance National Security and Public Safety

FAIRMONT, WV--(Marketwired - Mar 15, 2016) - Tygart Technology, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise grade video and photographic analysis and biometric recognition systems and services, today announced it is offering Toshiba's Face Recognition Software Library as an integrated component of MXSERVER to strengthen national security and public safety.

Tygart's MXSERVER solution is algorithm agnostic and can be deployed with multiple commercially available or government developed face recognition algorithms. Tygart works closely with end-users to determine the most effective algorithm to use given their unique environment and use case, continually improving performance by using the best available algorithm over the life of the program. Toshiba Face Recognition Software Library is a Software Development Kit (SDK) that provides automated face detection and tracking in videos and photos, face recognition matching and photograph quality assessment. The combination of these powerful solutions will provide government agencies enhanced surveillance, monitoring and forensic analysis capabilities.

"We are very proud of the accuracy and price performance ratio of Toshiba's enterprise-grade software algorithms, based on the result of FRV2013 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology," said Nobuyoshi Enomoto, Deputy Senior Manager of Toshiba. "Integration with the MXSERVER cloud-based platform strengthens our offering with a scalable search and index capability to support real-time surveillance and monitoring for public security and post-event forensic analysis."

John Waugaman, President of Tygart, added, "Integration with Toshiba's facial recognition algorithm was a natural extension to support the government and law enforcement community internationally. We are pleased to be working with Toshiba, a leader in facial recognition technology. Toshiba continues to be one of the top performers based on independent testing by the National Institute of Standards and Technology."

MXSERVER provides investigators and analysts with the capability to analyze video; manage and distribute large media collections via the Internet; and screen and monitor video surveillance to quickly identify "persons of interest." MXSERVER facial recognition automatically finds, extracts and matches faces from very large media collections, including those stored in disparate or disconnected systems. It is designed to deliver fast and accurate results through automated forensic processing and analysis. MXSERVER is used by law enforcement to monitor large-scale events, process live surveillance feeds identifying potential threats and conduct investigative analysis following a terrorist attack or criminal act.
