VIVOTEK and CyberLink Corp have announced they have entered into a strategic partnership that will see CyberLink’s FaceMe AI facial recognition engine integrated into VIVOTEK’s IP surveillance solutions.

“Founded in 2000, VIVOTEK has been dedicated to the IP surveillance industry for 20 years. Entering the era of AIoT, we will continue global partnerships to accelerate and enhance video applications by joining force with industry-leading analytic software providers.

“We are honoured to partner with CyberLink, also a Taiwanese company and to adopt CyberLink’s FaceMe, which was ranked one of the most accurate AI facial recognition engines in the NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (VISA and WILD tests),” said Owen Chen, chairman of VIVOTEK.

“Through this strengthened alliance, facial recognition intelligence will be integrated with VIVOTEK’s network cameras and backend video management software, enabling security operators to receive accurate facial
recognition alerts based on both blacklists and whitelists. We are very pleased to see our partnership being elevated to a new chapter today, further enhancing our goal to provide advanced video value for users around the globe.”

CyberLink is also pleased with the new partnership.

“The demand for facial recognition is booming, driven by the latest IoT and AIoT innovations, and enabling a wide array of scenarios across industries such as security, home and public safety, retail, banking and more,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CyberLink’s founder and CEO.

“Each application is dependent on the performance of the cameras used to capture faces. CyberLink is pleased to partner with VIVOTEK, a world leader in surveillance cameras, and to integrate FaceMe into VIVOTEK devices to provide accurate and reliable solutions to the market.”
