The global forensic technology market size is estimated at $5.5 billion USD in 2023, with a revenue forecast of $10.6 billion by 2030.
Accuracy and speed are a must for forensic examiners, crime analysts and records and identification technicians.
NEC’s Integra-ID® Automated Biometric Identity Service (ABIS) contains a comprehensive range of tools for editing, selection, image enhancement, comparison and verification. The cloud-enabled, multi-service architecture supports multiple biometric modalities, such as fingerprints, palm prints, faces, irises and tattoos.

The facial recognition market is predicted to experience a remarkable compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.13% from 2023 to 2030. The market was worth $5.8 billion USD in 2022 and is expected to surpass $16.5 billion USD by 2030, according to Reports Insights Consulting.
Facial recognition has become an essential technology for many government agencies to support criminal investigations and to detect and prevent fraud for government benefits and credentials.
For more than 32 years, NEC has been a leader in facial recognition technology. We’re proud to offer NeoFace® Reveal, an easy and effective facial recognition application providing law enforcement, crime laboratories, and civil applicant processing agencies the ability to recognize facial images (ranging from good to very poor quality) by performing either a one-to-many (1:N) search or one-to-one (1:1) match against a database of thousands to millions of database records. NeoFace Reveal is the software solution for questions of identity for identification, investigation and verification use cases.
The strength of NEC’s NeoFace technology lies in its tolerance of poor quality as well as demographic diversity, whether age, gender, or race. Highly compressed surveillance videos and facial images, previously of little or no value, are now usable, leading to higher rates of identification. NeoFace facial recognition technology has been extensively and repeatedly benchmark tested by NIST since 2009 and consistently achieves a first place ranking regarding search accuracy within the biometric industry!

Video and photographs provide valuable evidence when law enforcement officials conduct criminal investigations. Originating from a wide range of sources—and with varying quality—video or photographic images are sometimes the only evidence in a criminal case. Investigators will spend countless hours trying to identify an unknown suspect from the images.
For the first time, multiple agencies can share mugshot databases with each other using NEC’s powerful #1 NIST-ranked facial recognition algorithm, the industry’s fastest and most accurate face-matching algorithm. NeoFace® WideNet is a hosted service that benefits law enforcement personnel with expedited criminal investigations and faster crime solving by processing photographic images and video evidence.
This service saves law enforcement valuable time with the ability to search multiple databases rather than a single source when matching images, resulting in reduced caseloads as well. Accessible from any web browser, NeoFace WideNet enhances poor quality latent face images, searches against large mugshot and video repositories, and provides easy-to-assess ranked suspect candidate lists.
Putting a Powerful Tool in the Hands of Law Enforcement
Quicker processing of evidence combined with the ability to rapidly generate a list of actionable leads gives investigators an advantage in cases involving facial video evidence. NeoFace WideNet can process images from either still images or video streams.
The strength of NEC’s facial recognition solutions rests in a tolerance of poor quality, highly compressed surveillance videos and photographic images. The service offers several standard and advanced enhancements to correct difficult-to-match images. It turns previously unusable facial images into hard evidence with enhancements such as pose correction, consolidation of images and improved illumination. With the capability to match low-resolution facial images down to 24 pixels between the eyes, NEC’s facial recognition technology outperforms other face recognition systems in matching accuracy.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) matching algorithm recognition benchmarks have consistently proven that NEC’s biometric technologies have the fastest and most accurate face and fingerprint recognition algorithm and have the most resilient facial recognition technologies to viewing low angles, low-resolution images and poor image quality.
Affordable Technology for a Wide Range of Agencies
NeoFace WideNet is designed to be highly scalable as well as affordable, suitable for small, medium and large law enforcement agencies. Through a licensing agreement, authorized agency users can deploy any HTML 5 compatible web browser to access the NeoFace Reveal application. By changing the purchase model from CAPEX to OPEX through a hosted service and lowering acquisition costs, agencies can see an immediate return on investment through decreased investigation time and reduced workloads.
World-leading Identification Matching Technology
Independent testing confirms that NEC’s facial recognition technology provides the fastest, most accurate matching capability and the most resistant to variants in, race and pose angle. Quickly and accurately processing video images expedites criminal investigations and leads to more crimes being solved. More than 30 years ago, AFIS revolutionized fingerprint evidence. Today, NeoFace WideNet is poised to doing the same with photo and video evidence.
