NEC India has deployed its Face Recognition Solution (FRS) at hotel Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport, near Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi.
This will be the first deployment of safety and surveillance systems — powered by NEC’s FRS — in the Indian hospitality sector.
The solution — deployed by NEC’s partner Target Vision — matches faces appearing on the hotel surveillance cameras to a database list of potential security threats provided by local authorities.
The solution can also be utilized for whitelist management, offering customized service to the VIP guests at the hotel simply by recognizing their faces.
Koichiro Koide, managing director, NEC India, said: “We have spent 30 years to bring in the level of advancement seen in this technology, which has been globally recognized for its performance and accuracy.”
NEC’s face recognition technology can recognize poor quality, compressed surveillance videos and images. This technology can even use poor quality webcam images to produce the highest search results per second, and can recognize altered faces too with a high level of accuracy. The FRS can produce search results, even when linked to a database of over 1.6 million records.
The hospitality group has 26 hotels in 15 cities across India.
“The security solution will strengthen our already existing security arrangements at our Aerocity hotels,” said Rahul Pandit, president & executive director, The Lemon Tree Hotel Company.
