Now, I know I am old and even old fashion to some folk, but church use to be where you went to hear the Word of God preached/taught and have fellowship with other believers. Most of the churches I was a member of were anywhere from 150 to 1200. Even with the larger congregation one eventually knew who were the regulars and visitors. Well, today it is different. It’s not only the government keeping track of you but the local church!
‘Facial Recognition Software by Churchix for Biometric Attendance
Facial recognition software by Churchix identifies people in videos and photos. This biometric attendance system identifies members, suspects, employees, students and basically anyone you have interest in. All you need to do is enroll photos of your members into the software, then connect a live video USB and/or IP camera and Churchix facial recognition software will identify your members! You can also upload recorded videos or photos.
Churchix facial recognition software is designed for Churches, Classrooms, T&A and basically for anyone who wants to save the pain of manually tracking attendance.
First of its kind, Churchix face scanner provides you with accurate data on event attending members in your events and services. The software also allows you to sort and manage your videos and photos.
What are Reference Photos in a Face Recognition Software?
Facial recognition software requires reference photos, and Churchix is no different. Reference Photos are the photos of your members which you enroll into the data base of Churchix.
Reference photos serve as an anchor and therefore should be of high quality. You can think of them as high quality passport photos. The enrollment and registration are done automatically and Churchix allows you to manually edit each member details.
Reference Photos Requirements
– Sharp image
– Lighting is spread evenly on the face, without any hot spots
– Size: Minimum of 50 pixels between the eyes
– Visible frontal face pose with no more than +/- 15 degrees from frontal position
– No facial expression
What are Probe Photos in a Facial Recognition Software?
Probe Photos are the photos coming from an event either as still images or video frames, and they are fed into Churchix face recognition software. The probe photos are matched against the reference photos. Naturally, probe photos have lower quality since they are sometimes taken in the field in dynamic conditions. If you manage to obtain high quality probe photos your accuracy results will be great!
For more details on facial recognition software photos please refer to our photo guide.
In order to achieve high accuracy, you need to locate the camera where it would capture fully frontal visible faces.
Of course by zooming in you will lose range, but you will gain high quality images.
Don’t forget to make sure your lighting conditions are good.
Also, do some testing and adjust the camera location / zoom until you find the best spot for high accuracy.
Churchix can work with any camera type, however if you run Churchix under a surveillance mode, we recommend you use GigE cameras. GigE cameras transmit uncompressed video which keeps maximum face data, and handle motion bluriness very well. Facial recognition software requires decent face images in order to guarantee high accuracy and Churchix is no different.
Who is it for?
Churchix is designed for churches, classrooms, hotels, T&A and event attendance, and for tracking suspects and criminals. it can be used by event managers who want to track event attendance, or by anyone who wants to identify known guests from live or recorded video.

‘A prestigious Christian girls’ school in Australia has prompted a mixed response after announcing it has accepted a pupil who was born as a boy but now identifies as a girl.
The Glennie School, an Anglican institution in the state of Queensland, confirmed the news via an email to mums and dads at the weekend.
In the message, which was seen by the ABC Brisbane, the private school’s headteacher Kim Cohen said: “In our Middle/Senior years, we have a young girl who was born into a boy’s body.
“I know this is a concept many of us may struggle to grasp, but please take time out to think about how much harder it must have been for her to make the realisation.
“As a Christian school where we strive to live by the teachings of Jesus, I believe our job is an easy one – we accept those we perceive as different to us, we treat them with the same respect, integrity and compassion that we do all members of the community, and we do so with love.”
Local transgender Anglican priest Jo Inkpin congratulated The Glennie School – which is in the town of Toowoomba – saying she was “so proud”.
But one Facebook user wrote “[I] feel sorry for those parents that wanted an all-girl school for their daughter(s]”, while another said “so much for being a girls’ school… we had our hearts set on Glennie… but now seeking alternatives.”’ http://mychristiandaily.com/australian-christian-school-accepts-first-transgender-pupil/
Since the Anglican denomination has a priest that is already confused on their gender what follows will not really matter to them! However, God does not make mistakes. Here is the Lord Jesus speaking:
Matthew 19:4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
That should be clear enough!
