NEC NeoFace Watch facial recognition system chosen for 14 international airports across Brazil

NEC Corporation recently announced its selection by the Receita Federal (Brazilian National Tax Collection Agency) to provide NeoFace Watch facial recognition technology for 14 international airports throughout Brazil, including the major hub of Governador Andre Franco Montoro International airport (Guarulhos airport) in Sao Paolo and Antonio Carlos Jobim International airport (Galeao airport) in Rio de Janeiro, in order to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of customs procedures.

NEC’s NeoFace Watch solution enables automatic facial recognition through photos, CCTV images, recorded videos and webcams. It can be applied across a wide range of businesses to identify people both for security purpose and in customer relationship management, positioning itself as a flexible platform that aims to meet the needs of companies and governments alike. For this project, NEC will deliver facial recognition systems that consist of NeoFace Watch software, CCTV cameras, servers and network infrastructure, as well as integration services for Receita Federal’s existing systems and maintenance services.
