Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting-edge Portuguese technology startup, today announced FaceGuard™, its new patent-pending solution for video-surveillance systems.
true data-subject (all of us) privacy while keeping all the security and safety functions that are the reason why such systems exist in the first place
“Security and Privacy are two concepts that have never found their common ground regarding video-surveillance-based systems and solutions, until now,” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL. “We are excited to announce that we are bringing to the market a new generation, and the first of its kind, of video-surveillance technologies, that will enable for the first time, true data-subject (all of us) privacy while keeping all the security and safety functions that are the reason why such systems exist in the first place,” he continued.
QL is creating next-generation video-surveillance products and services by combining its broad in-house technical expertise with that of its partners. The company is known to be first and foremost a “solutions company” to some of the most challenging problems that both people and businesses face today. QL has affiliations with academia as well as with industry and soon with government authorities too.
FaceGuard®, both a trademark and a patent-pending technology, is being announced as “the new hope” by bringing for the first time the right balance between security, safety, and data privacy, into the world of video-surveillance systems. It will be doing so via a stack of 4 new computer vision technology layers that operate in tandem, providing full on-demand selective data subject (de)anonymization features, device-display anonymization, behavioral analytics (via gait biometrics), and general weapons’ detection, all that while keeping the whole system 100% GDPR compliant.
The technology stack also includes an innovative custom DLT (“blockchain”) infrastructure for total system anti-tampering, indisputability, and immutability, as well as a parallel GDPR DSAR data bus self-service feature to greatly simplify and streamline DSAR events for both data controllers and data subjects.
The solution is in the advanced R&D stage but set to hit the market in Q4 2022 with the launch of a FaceGuard™ NVR series (FG-NVR), compatible with any IP camera, and later on, in 2023 a new breed of next-gen FaceGuard® IP cameras that will natively work along the FG-NVR enhancing its already powerful on-device Ai features.
