About 3D Face Recognition in Nigeria

Quadrev Limited, Official Country Partner of Artec Group, Luxembourg became the first and only Distributor and Integrator of the cutting edge 3D Face Recognition in Nigeria and Africa in 2013. The Broadway 3D currently provides the highest security level of access control. Access is granted only if there is a match between the person’s face and his stored 3D image in the database. Recording of the 3D images allows for statistical data gathering and records attempts to get unauthorized access. The Broadway 3 D will not be fooled by a user in make up or a stolen badge or keycard. This device eradicates the “human factor” mistakes, for instance, when a security guard’s attention diminishes due to an influx of people at the ACS.

Broadway 3D can be used to increase the effectiveness of Access Control Systems (ACS) in conjunction with any doors, electric locks, gates, turnstiles and other devices.
Moreover, the device can be used with electronic information kiosks, payment terminals, customer loyalty program stations for identity authorization, etc.

     A Time Server

The Broadway Check Point capacity reaches up to 60 people per minute even with large databases (>10,000 enrollees). This increases the throughput capacity of any checkpoint or gate, and makes keycards and badges obsolete all the while retaining a high level of security

     Protection against loss or theft of a badge

In cases where keycards or badges are used, the Broadway Check Point protects against an unsanctioned use of stolen, lost or transferred cards. When granting access, the device not only checks the authenticity of the card itself, but also the identity of the person using the card.

     Work hours audit

The Broadway Check Point quickly and easily integrates into an existing access control system (ACS). There is no need to change the current ACS or get rid of badges/key cards. Each user can choose a scenario that works best for his or her company.

     Simple Integration

The Broadway Check Point allows you to automate and enhance employee attendance record keeping systems and eliminates the danger of falsification.

     Safeguarding personal information

Most biometric methods require the storage of personal information, which people usually do not share with others in their daily lives (fingerprints, retina and iris scans, etc). This leads to a viable risk of identity theft where personal data is used against the person (biometric falsification to obtain unauthorized access or fabricate evidence in a court of law, access to personal medical data, etc).
Unlike other biometrics, 3D face identification doesn’t carry the risk of private data being used against the person since the geometric dimensions of a face is “public information”. That information is used in most identification methods in the form of a photograph. Moreover, the use of a dynamic 3D image of the face eliminates the risk of falsification almost entirely.

Recent Project

Full Installation and Integration of Smart 3D Face Recognition Biometric Attendance System in 10 Student Hall of Residence at Covenant University.
Quadrev LLC Deployed & Integrated 10 unit of 3D Face Recognition Biometric Cameras to the 10 Student Halls of Residence in the University. The School sets the pace as the First University to Deploy the Units in the whole of Africa.

Basic Functionality of the Broadway 3D

  • Works with Wiegand interface card readers
  • Works with Wiegand interface access monitoring and control systems
  • Use of control device
  • Can be monitored and controlled via Ethernet
  • Can be integrated into existing ACS via Artec SDK

Education Projects

Quadrev Limited currently plans to roll out the 3D Face recognition Biometric in 10 (Ten) Private Universities in Nigeria to help achieve the following:
  • Encourage Student Attendance at compulsory academic and non academic gatherings and meetings with ZERO false rate
  • Improve student attendance in lecture rooms
  • Take count of students every night (Roll Call) i.e. this helps universities and colleges that have a restriction policy on students going off campus without school permission
  • Helps to achieve and grow a accurate student database information (see our exeat management system)
The Broadway 3D Face Recognition Technology is capable of visually identifying a student as easily as humans identify each other. Identification takes a split second.


  • It eliminates the challenges posed by manual or paper signing of roll call
  • It is high-tech i.e. it’s a smart technology that is worth the investment
  • Doesn’t require direct physical contact or exact positioning in front of identification device
  • Identifies walking or even running people regardless of their age or height
  • The 3D device will not be fooled by a user in makeup/masquerade dressing. More so it is capable of differentiating identical twins
  • This device eradicates the human factor mistakes i.e. when names are omitted on the roll call list on paper.
  • The use of a dynamic 3D image of the face eliminates the risks of falsification almost entirely
  • It is a time saver with a throughput of 60 students per minute even with large databases.


Quadrev Limited participated in the Securex West Africa Exhibition, held March 18th and 19th 2014, Eko Hotel, Lagos-Nigeria

Development of 3D Face Match Applications for Universities in Africa:
Medical History (Integration with University Medical Records Data.)
An enrolled and registered student can stand in front of the 3D camera placed in the medical center. Once he gets recognized, the computing unit instantly feeds out his/her medical records on the doctors’ display screen. This replaces the arduous old-fashioned way of searching for medical record files.
General Student Records:
A student history can be displayed almost immediately if an enrolled and registered student stands in front of a customized 3D camera placed in Student Records office, Student Affairs or as deemed fit by the university, to ascertain if e.g. he is defaulting on any fees, has been a roll call defaulter, has any outstanding issues with school management etc.
Exeat Management System:
A student given exeat for a number of days will only be given access to pass through a Student Turnstile Security gate integrated with a 3D Face recognition camera, for the duration of exeat. The Student details and Biometric template are simply made active for exeat on the network management system. To this end, school management can easily know the movement of each student on exeat i.e. when he/she leaves and returns to the campus
