CyberLink’s FaceMe® integrates with Vypin eScreener, enabling real-time facial recognition and mask detection into kiosks
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Feb 25 2021 – CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer in AI and facial recognition technologies, today announced a partnership integrating its facial recognition software development kit (SDK) FaceMe® into Vypin eScreener™ kiosks. The solution enables cutting-edge touchless access control and security, in an all-in-one facial recognition, mask detection, digital hand sanitizer, and body temperature check kiosk.
One of the biggest challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic is ensuring that essential in-person services can remain operational while guaranteeing that spaces are safe and secure. Vypin launched the Vypin eScreener™ kiosk with the latest in automated screening technology to promote health and safety without sacrificing the employee or customer experience. CyberLink’s FaceMe® SDK powers the eScreener™ kiosk’s ability to detect whether a face mask is present or not, while supporting more than 100,000 facial identifications on the device and keeping track of scan time, access approval and more.
“Facial recognition technology is becoming more integral to our lives every day, especially in the fight against COVID-19,” said Dr. Jau Huang, Chairman and CEO, CyberLink. “As a pioneer in the market, FaceMe® was uniquely able to provide the core component in Vypin’s eScreener™ kiosks to detect both masked and unmasked faces, while supporting a positive and uninterrupted customer and employee experience.”
CyberLink’s FaceMe® engine is ranked as one of the most accurate facial recognition technologies in the world by the renowned National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), with an accuracy rate of up to 99.7%. FaceMe® is integrated into both the eScreener™ Max and more compact Pro model to meet a variety of spatial needs and use cases.
“The integration of our kiosks with CyberLink’s state-of-the-art FaceMe® facial recognition engine enables us to arm clients with the secure, automated technology they need as a frontline defense,” said JT McGibbon, VP/General Manager, Vypin. “As the world continues to grapple with COVID-19, our hands-free kiosks powered by FaceMe® provide peace of mind to organizations and businesses maintaining the health and safety of their in-person environments.”
