Digital Barriers and Capita have signed a global strategic partnership that will see the former’s full suite of technology, including live facial recognition solutions, integrated with Capita’s Control Room solutions.

The agreement sees Digital Barriers’ ultra-low bandwidth live video streaming, body-worn camera, video analytics and live facial recognition technology integrated with Capita’s Control Room solutions not just for the Emergency Services, but also critical responders and national infrastructure providers. The specialist technology will also be integrated with Capita’s digital evidence management platform.

The new collaboration means that facial recognition results can be shown in Control Rooms alongside other information. Ultra-low bandwidth streaming will provide new ways of viewing emergencies from Control Rooms, in turn making the job of operators easier and ensuring the right resources are sent to help in a given situation.

Under the terms of the agreement, Digital Barriers’ edge-intelligent solutions, which are already used by Government and commercial organisations in more than 60 countries, will be made available through Capita’s global network. Digital Barriers will also promote Capita’s ControlWorks and VisionDS Control Room offerings via its own channels.

Paul Eggleton, managing director of Capita Secure Solutions and Services, stated: “We’re very excited to be signing this agreement with Digital Barriers. The integration of this technology with our portfolio truly sets us apart in being able to offer the best facial recognition technology to our customers around the world.”

Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, responded: “This is the perfect time to partner with Capita as there’s strong demand from law enforcement for technological advancements that promote officer safety and efficiency. We look forward to working in close collaboration in order to further accelerate our international growth.”
