The BANCA Database of Faces

The BANCA database is a large, realistic and challenging multi-modal database intended for training and testing multi-modal verification systems. The BANCA database was captured in four European languages in two modalities (face and voice). For recording, both high and low quality microphones and cameras were used. The subjects were recorded in three different scenarios, controlled, degraded and adverse over 12 different sessions spanning three months. In total 208 people were captured, half men and half women.

This deployment of the BANCA database only consists of the images of the English recordings.

Associated with the database is the BANCA protocol. The protocol defines which sets of data to use for training, evaluation and testing. Performing experiments according to the protocol allows institutions to easily compare their results to others.
