and across video sources.

People Search

Search for people using computer vision

Searching video content for specific people – known in computer vision terms as Person Re-identification (Person Re-ID) – is the process of matching individuals across multiple non-continuous camera views within a multi-feed environment. Person identification is another method of searching for people, where footage is scourged for people on a defined watch-list. Person Re-ID is significantly more complicated, as it is performed without an established identity catalog to compare individuals against.

Common computer vision use case for people search include:

Law Enforcement Video Analytics

Law enforcement

Police commonly use video search capabilities to find suspects as part of post-crime investigations.

Airports, government facilities, sporting venues and other high-risk settings use video analytics to identify and deny access to certain individuals.

Hospitals and healthcare Video Analytics

Emergency services
