|Similar Face Search [Abbreviation: SFS]||Search server and Operation client software|
|Similar Face Search-SDK* [Abbreviation: SFS-SDK]||Search server core software|
By applying a unique clustering process when registering images in the feature Data Base (DB), features of similar faces extracted from recorded video can be searched on average in less than one second from a large DB containing as many as thirty six (36) million faces.
SFS technology can extract facial images with a minimum size of 60 × 60 pixels from recorded image video. The images can be registered
in the image feature DB at high speed averaging 640 faces/second, by using unique facial feature extraction and registration techniques.
Up to 20 faces can be extracted from a single image.
Video data files from other manufacturers video recording devices can be uploaded to the search server by converting the data files into a specific format. This enables a wide range of video images to be imported as search targets. Supported formats include: JPEG, QuickTime (mov), Hitachi-Kokusai Video Stream (HVS).
SFS allows a user to easily select a specific person in a group or location to be watched while playing recorded video. It enables the
operator to search for similar facial features of the person under surveillance from the feature DB containing key images (faces to be
searched for) . It also allows the operator to search for the face of a person, which has been previously registered as a key target face.
SFS provides an operational display adaptable to many practical applications.
Search results can be displayed in order of similarity or time. In the case of multiple cameras, the operator can select one camera or all cameras for the similar face search operation. Other search conditions can also be selected simply and efficiently.
|Displays live or recorded video from a registered camera and video from an external movie file.|
|2||Search image panel||Displays a search target image (search key image). Allows a user to select or de-select the face of a targeted person.|

*1 Search image capture" button: Capture viewer button, Capture JPEG file button etc...
*2 Search operation" button: Face search button, Display registered faces button, Search condition button etc...
In order to improve operator control, the button panel displays an enlarged view of the "search key image capture operation" and "search operation" buttons provided on the top menu bar of the operation screen. This panel is movable and therefore can be placed at any position in the dual-screen layout mode.
The SFS-SDK is a product that provides software developers with user command functions by Web API command format (HTTP
conformed), which support a high-speed search engine using unique clustering technology from Hitachi and user development efficiency.
The functions allow users to develop software which analyze existing video sources.
The Similar Face Search and Similar Face Search-SDK product is supplied according to the following configuration.
