World-class face recognition, now on the edge

Introducing SAFR® Inside and the new AXIS Q1615 Mk III video camera

SAFR Inside runs on the AXIS Q1615 Mk III performing face detection and matching in the SAFR Cloud. Face recognition results and associated event meta data displays in real time in the SAFR web console, and desktop client.

Real-time, in-camera face detection, mask detection, and more

SAFR Inside brings NIST-leading live video face recognition and additional features to smart edge devices. Embedded directly into the camera, SAFR Inside utilizes onboard compute functionality — eliminating the need for servers dedicated to processing video streams.

By eliminating server hardware, SAFR Inside saves you on average $500 per camera. Leverage powerful computer vision capabilities, in real-time with dramatic reductions in total cost of ownership.

Greater intelligence, lower TCO

By performing key processing tasks on-camera, SAFR Inside reduces network bandwidth and server hardware demands. As more cameras with onboard processing are deployed these efficiencies grow, meaning fewer servers are needed and total cost of ownership savings increase with the size of your deployment. Additional savings are achieved from reduced data center rack space and power demands and elimination of server maintenance and support contracts. Operating real-time face recognition and video analytics is now more affordable for a wider variety of customers whether you deploy on one camera or hundreds.

How it works

SAFR Inside performs face detection and tracking in real time on live video streams, rapidly detecting and cropping face images in the field of view. These key image processing tasks are performed directly on the camera running SAFR Inside. Individual face images are then sent for analysis and optional recognition to the SAFR Server, which can be deployed in the Cloud or on premises in a corporate data center.

SAFR Inside How It Works

SAFR Inside + the SAFR Platform supports:

Enrolled person recognition
Recognize faces in real time be they opted-in VIPs or persons of concern on a watchlist.

Demographic analysis
Estimate and track age, gender, and sentiment for detected faces. Attach information to known person records, or anonymously track data without collecting or storing PII.

Mask detection and alerting
Detect faces of persons entering your business, and trigger an audio or visual reminder if they are not wearing a protective face mask in accordance with facility guidelines.

SAFR Inside Axis

The AXIS Q1615 Mk III — available July 2020 — is the first camera to run SAFR Inside. SAFR Inside is easily installed via the Axis web-based camera administration apps tab or using the AXIS Device Manager. Once installed on the camera, simply sign into your SAFR Server whether located on premises or in the Cloud. SAFR Inside is available at no additional charge and is part of a standard SAFR Platform license.

Support for additional cameras and formats coming soon.
