The Face Token Image component is designed to provide token(1) face images compatible with the Face Image Format as in ISO/IEC 19794 standard. This face image format enables range of applications on variety of devices, including devices that have limited resources required for data storage, and improves recognition accuracy by specifying data format, scene constraints (lighting, pose), photographic properties (positioning, camera focus) and digital image attributes (image resolution, image size).
The Face Token Image component has the following features:
The Face Token Image component also includes proprietary algorithms for this functionality:
The component is designed for desktop or mobile applications that run on PC or laptop with at least Intel Core 2 Q9400 (2.67 GHz) processor. It can be used from C/C++, C# and Java applications on all supported platforms. .NET wrappers of Windows libraries are provided for .NET developers.
(1) Token in this context is used as
"symbolic image, good enough image for machine recognition." Token Image as in ISO/IEC19794-5: "A Face Image Type that specifies frontal images with a specific geometric size and eye positioning based on the width and height of the image. This image type is suitable for minimizing the storage requirements for computer face recognition tasks such as verification while still offering vendor independence and human verification (versus human examination which requires more detail) capabilities."
