A Brief History
Animetrics was founded in 2003 with a vision for developing solutions to
fundamental problems in facial identification systems. Post-9/11, Government
and facial identification providers have been scrambling to provide effective
systems which effectively address security needs at airports, international
points of entry, and public venues.
Animetrics has developed technologies which allow for the comprehension of
critical 3D information in conventional photographic and video imagery. This
will allow for unprecedented flexibility and accuracy in the implementation of
facial identification systems.
Based in beautiful Jackson, New Hampshire, in the shadow of Mt. Washington surrounded
by endless four season recreation, the headquarters and development team are creating
the innovation of the future. Animetrics is comprised of scientists and scientific
and graphic programmers lead by a seasoned management team:
