LAS VEGAS, April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Remark
Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK), a diversified global technology
company with leading artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions and
digital media properties, today announced that it began shipping
and deploying products from its family of AI thermal solutions,
including Thermal Kits, Thermal Pads, and Thermal Helmets, in
the United States and
"We are proud that customers such as casinos, entertainment
venues, government agencies, hospitality organizations, industrial
operations, law enforcement, and retail establishments have placed
their trust in our AI-based thermal products to function as part of
the solution for reopening the U.S. economy," stated Kai-Shing Tao, CEO of Remark Holdings. "Our
solutions provide touch-free access control and monitoring, as well
as accurate temperature measurement and the ability to scan as many
as 120 people per minute, a rate that is approximately 10 times
faster than manual checks. Our solutions also filter out non-human
heat sources and provide security personnel with real-time alerts
with photo identification."
The COVID-19 pandemic brought awareness to the United States of the importance of using
thermal-detection technology as a first-level screening tool to
prevent the spread of contagious diseases in locations and
situations where people gather in large groups. In addition,
employees are demanding that employers provide a safe work
environment, beginning with temperature checks that help to promote
a healthy environment.
Traditional thermal imagers and temperature devices require a
human operator to scan each patron as they walk through a security
point. The close proximity creates an uncomfortable intrusive
experience for customers and employees in addition to causing
delays at point of entry.
"We designed our family of thermal detection products to meet
the specific needs of our customers," added Mr. Tao. "While
thermal-imaging camera technology has been available for years, we
have created what we believe are industry-leading solutions by
integrating our award-winning AI software with very high-grade
thermal-imaging cameras. Additionally, our AI-based temperature
scanning solutions have operated successfully in Asia for nearly a year."
TK-1 (Thermal Kit 1) System
The company's AI-powered
Thermal Kit is an all-inclusive solution that allows for fast,
touch-free scanning of multiple people at one time as they enter
through established access points at a customer's site. The system
instantly and quietly alerts security personnel of any person with
a skin temperature that suggests a higher-than-normal temperature,
allowing site personnel to conduct a secondary temperature
Integrated with a calibrated, bi-spectral thermal camera, Remark
AI's software intelligently identifies and detects people with
temperatures that exceed a specified threshold, while also
preventing spoofing, at speeds as high as 120 people per minute.
The system can be mounted on walls, tripods, or ceilings to scan
wider areas. At the ideal distance of 2-5 meters, the TK-1 System
boasts accuracy within +/- 0.3℃. Additionally, Remark's thermal
solutions can be used to enhance existing security camera
Customers install the TK-1 System either as a standalone unit or
integrated into a centralized control system. Real-time video and
audible alerts from each installed system are sent to the command
center, allowing operators to identify and track any high-risk
individuals and alert the nearest security personnel/operator for a
Thermal Pad (R-Pad)
Remark's R-Pad combines
precise, medical-grade infrared thermal-imaging sensors with the
company's leading facial and object recognition algorithms in the
form factor of a mounted tablet device. Placed at access points,
the R-Pad scans everyone as they check in, and seamlessly
integrates with a customer's access control and gate
terminal. The R-Pad supports simultaneous multiple person clock-in,
to avoid queueing, and facial-recognition-based attendance
Thermal Helmet and Thermal Kiosk
Helmet is a mobile solution fitted with a thermal-imaging camera
that allows security personnel to patrol crowds and identify
individuals with temperatures that exceed a specified threshold. A
diffraction display provides multiple simultaneous temperature
images that allows the security officer to accurately identify
individuals who should be examined further.
The Thermal Kiosk can be placed anywhere in a facility,
especially at access points. The kiosk then immediately notifies
security personnel when it detects someone with a temperature that
exceeds a specified threshold, and sends an image of the customer
for additional tracking and testing. Thermal Helmets and Thermal
Kiosks are proven solutions for use at large live entertainment
events including sport stadiums and music concerts venues.
