Note, this application can process multiple streams of Full High-Definition video in real-time.  It makes use of all the available CPU, GPU and RAM resource on your machine.   In general, the higher specification your hardware the more video data you will be able to process and the smoother the application will run.   Note, the PC running the face-recognition software should be dedicated to this task and no other major application should be run on the same PC.

We recommend the following specification of system for a 1 to 2  High-Definition camera streams.

  • Processor: Intel® i7 or Xeon (Quad Core) or better (CPU benchmark > 8,000)
  • Windows 10 64 bit
  • Memory: 16 GB recommended
  • Video Card: NVIDIA® with Kepler, Maxwell or Pascal architecture with 4GB VRAM and 640 cores (e.g. GTX 1050) with latest NVIDIA drivers installed
  • An SSD disk with at least 100 Gigabyte free-space for storage of results

For a system that is required to analyse 2 to 4 High-Definition camera streams we recommend the following hardware.

  • Processor: Modern Intel i7 or Xeon with a CPU benchmark of around 16,000 or better that supports AVX2 instructions
  • Windows 10 64 bit
  • Memory: 16 GB DDR4 2400Mhz
  • Video Card:  NVIDIA with Pascal architecture with minimum 8GB VRam and 2,560 cores
  • SSD with at least 200GB free-space for storage

However, please note that in Identifier you can select the region-of-interest in the frame you wish to analyse.  This can significantly reduce the processing burden.

Instructions on how to verify your hardware meets these requirements can be found here.
