EMDYN BioTrace forms part of the EMDYN Vigilance product portfolio, integrating fully with it or working as a stand-alone application. It can process all kinds of source material from printed documents, such as passport scans and other identification documents, through to digital images taken from social media channels, television or CCTV feeds. It can be employed as a hybrid model, utilising both cloud and content processing on site, or run purely on the business premises, providing all data ingestion and processing via the local LAN.

Fast, cost effective and scalable

Ever-increasing numbers of pictures and video files are being viewed, stored and archived. It is impossible to examine and catalogue such data manually due to its sheer volume, while much of the material may come from low-quality media sources in uncontrolled environments with non-cooperative subjects. EMDYN BioTrace offers a fast, cost effective and scalable solution via a proven method of automatic searching and indexing of large image and video repositories.

It is a system with a broad range of applications and employs high performance algorithms that can deal with less than perfect source data with a capability way beyond human scale detection. EMDYN BioTrace can search at a rate of approx. 800m faces per second so finding a face in a one billion dataset can be done in seconds, rather than hours and days. This high-speed search capability can help to identify persons of interest, unmask identity fraud or even track individuals in CCTV feeds or via Social Media channels.

Key applications for EMDYN BioTrace

The applications are widespread and range from financial compliance to fraud prevention, anti-terrorism, border or access control through to surveillance and intelligence gathering.
