FaceVACS-DBScan instantly compares facial images from various sources to large image databases, supporting the biometric identification, comparison, and verification of persons.

Law enforcement professionals can identify individuals in crime scene photos, videos stills and sketches by matching facial images against the agency's mugshot repository. ID issuance agencies can compare ID portraits to large image databases to prevent ID fraud or detect clerical errors.

The Examiner toolset can enhance images for better comparison to the gallery. Image processing filters can improve the quality of images retrieved from low quality video footage. For example, the de-interlacing filter removes interlacing effects found in still images created from analog camera footage. Examiner also provides a set of inspection tools that help identify the person by comparing images side by side or by measuring facial features.

Operators can develop watch lists of potential matches while recording a full audit trail for each step in the process. Finding a suspect in a timely manner allows investigators to act upon the search results in the critical time period after a crime has been committed.
