How matches work

Graphic of algorithms
Algorithm measures facial features

The system can search through non perfect images however the following must be visible:

  • Eyes
  • Nose
  • Shape of the Face
Graphic of multiple dots showing faces
Images with multiple persons

The system has the capability to identify multiple faces within an image, e.g. if you have a photograph of a crowd at a football match or a nightclub still the system can identify more than one person.

The more of the face that is seen the better the result

The whole system is based on an Algorithm which measures a number of facial features and their distance from the eyes, therefore the more head on the image the better the result.

The system is reliant on combining cutting edge technology with an experienced operator

We are able to achieve a high success rate by identifying operators that are proficient at recognising faces which compliment the technology.
