ID-Ready Facial Biometric System

ID-Ready Facial Biometric System

ID-Ready Facial Biometric System Product Image

Animetrics' ID-Ready is a subscription-based online service for smaller law enforcement departments. 

The service takes a grainy, partial view, angulated 2D facial image, applies 2D-to-3D algorithms and corrects the pose of the face, and makes it ID-Ready for most any facial recognition system.

Most facial recognition systems require photos be a frontal view of a face in order to make a positive match. However, most photos studied by law enforcement are of faces that are rotated, “off pose” and are captured by low resolution video security cameras or long distance telephoto surveillance cameras.

Here’s how the system works: law enforcement personnel upload a 2D photo to Animetrics servers at and the ID Ready system applies facial feature point detection (eyes, nose tip, mouth, etc.) to accurately find the face and specify the parts Fine-tuning is possible by the user positioning three red crosshairs over both eyes and tip of the nose.

From there a 3D model is created and a new 2D resultant image that is pose-corrected to zero for facial pitch, yaw, and roll along the x, y and z axis.

ID Ready automatically eliminates any occlusions by using a proprietary symmetric blending algorithm. Users may choose to show the occlusions, which let you toggle between the mirror image view and the actual view of the rotated face, which may include the non-visible part of the angulated face from the original 2D image.

Both versions of the photo can be downloaded as .jpg images for use in any facial recognition system, including Animetrics’ FaceR Identity Management Solution (FIMS).

All network communication with is encrypted over a secure SSL channel. Images uploaded to the system are automatically deleted within two hours. Further, all 3D generated face files are deleted from Animetrics’ servers within two hours.

ID Ready is geared toward smaller police departments who lack the resources to invest in their own facial recognition systems or facial analysis tools such as Animetrics ForensicaGPS. Setting up an account is free, and there are no licensing fees. Animetrics is offering a free trial for five images. There are three pricing tiers:

  • Pay as you go: unlimited images normalized, priced at $9 per image
  • Monthly subscription: $69 per month (renewed automatically unless cancelled) for 50 images, after which customers are billed $9 per image
  • Monthly Prepaid: $599 a year for up to 50 images a month, an annual savings of $230 over the monthly option
  • Call Animetrics for special qualified law enforcement discounts.
