Digital Barriers and Capita have announced they have signed a global strategic partnership to integrate its full suite of technology, including live facial recognition with Capita’s control room solutions for emergency services.

The agreement will see 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 for the emergency services, critical responders and national infrastructure providers. It will also be integrated with Capita’s digital evidence management platform.

The collaboration means that facial recognition results can be shown in control rooms alongside other information and ultra-low bandwidth streaming will provide new ways to view emergencies from the control room, making the job of operators easier and ensuring the right resources are sent to help.

Under the terms of the agreement, Digital Barriers’ edge-intelligent solutions, which are already used by government and commercial organisations in more than sixty 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 said: “We are very excited to be signing this agreement. 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 added: “This is the perfect time to partner with Capita as there is strong demand from law enforcement for technological advancements that promote officer safety and efficiency. We look forward to working in close collaboration to further accelerate our international growth.”
