Oosto has updated its Vision Artificial Intelligence software with several new features. The company also introduced a proprietary peripheral device.

Oosto version 2.6 includes neural networks optimized to support larger datasets, camera integration, and Genetec VMS features that provide a single window to view real-time security alerts.

The peripheral device is the OnPoint contactless reading tablet. It can operate autonomously and grant access to employees and visitors even in the event of a network failure.

Readers use a combination of facial biometrics and advanced computing to recognize authorized personnel, even those who mask their faces. According to Oosto, the device incorporates 3D liveness detection to prevent spoofing.

“It was only a matter of time before real-time video surveillance and access control systems harnessed the power of the edge,” said Dieter Joecker, chief technology officer at Oosto.

“Oosto shifts compute workloads from expensive on-premises servers to the edge, but, perhaps more importantly, we do so without sacrificing recognition accuracy, security, and performance in real-world scenarios. nor expand the physical footprint of the system,” says Jocker.

More information about Oosto’s new advanced capabilities is available on the company’s website.

Oosto partners with Muscogee Native American Nation

Oosto also recently partnered with Muscogee Nation Gaming Enterprises, one of the largest casino owners and operators in the United States.

The collaboration will see the deployment of Oosto’s biometric facial security software on cameras at the River Spirit Casino and Resort across all gaming floors.

The Oklahoma-based casino spans 200,000 square feet and receives 10,000 guests daily, making the environment challenging for security teams. For this to work, they have to deal with varying lighting conditions and obstacles to vision.

To address these challenges, River Spirit Casino deployed facial recognition cameras and Oosto OnWatch real-time watchlist alert.

The integration was carried out by integration and security consulting firm Orion Security Solutions after various proof-of-concept projects with Oosto’s software.

“To be honest, casinos are pretty tough environments,” says Sean Crain, president and CEO of Orion Security.

“We need a facial recognition system to spot banned customers despite large groups of people entering at the same time, cameras positioned high enough, visitors not looking directly into the cameras and even though people are wearing masks, hats or goggles. says Crain.

According to Travis Thompson, chief compliance officer at Muscogee Gaming Nation, biometric software is already delivering results.

“We’ve eliminated most of the manual processes associated with identifying bad actors when they enter the casino,” says Thompson.

“When a guest does something inside the property that is considered a crime or undesirable, that person is no longer allowed to enter the property. Their profile is entered into Oosto and the system searches for that face each time they enter the property.

According to Thompson, since implementing the software, the company has seen three to five positive detections per day. Additionally, Oosto’s Centralized Intelligence Database module allows security teams to house bad actor intelligence across Muscogee Nation’s multiple properties. They can also view historical video footage for details of crime-related activities.

Oosto’s rollout comes months after the company brought facial recognition capabilities to the Australian Turf Club’s CCTV system.

More recently, the biometrics firm published a white paper explaining how facial recognition can help security teams deal with accidents in stadiums and arenas.
