NtechLab is one of the few Russian technology companies developing their business internationally. Dozens of large cities in Russia, the CIS countries, Latin America and Southeast Asia are already using NtechLab’s computer vision algorithms in their municipal video surveillance systems. NtechLab serves more than 100 customers in 20+ countries worldwide. The office in Latin America operates since 2020. NtechLab products are in high demand in public and corporate security, retail, financial, entertainment and hospitality industries.
In the UAE the company will be focusing on public sector, projects for the needs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, banking sector and services for shopping malls and retail chains. The presence in Abu Dhabi and Dubai is expected to help NtechLab take up a significant share of the computer vision market in the UAE. The company's special interest in the region is supported by the fact that in 2020 NtechLab attracted investments of about $15 million from an international consortium of sovereign wealth funds including those from the Middle East.
The technological excellence of NtechLab algorithms was recently proved by the #1 position in the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) competition of the National Institute of Standards and Technology of the US Department of Commerce (NIST). The NtechLab algorithm was recognized by the American institute as the world’s best based on the results of 7 independent tests, and within three tests the algorithm has beaten a record in the entire history of testing. In addition, NtechLab is listed in top three in terms of the effectiveness of face recognition in medical masks.
“The victory in the prestigious international competition is the result of 6 years of work of NtechLab engineers. In addition to very high accuracy, NtechLab algorithm is known for its high efficiency when working in real-life urban conditions, including installations with an unlimited number of cameras.
