Video-based face recognition has been one of the hot topics in the field of image processing in the last several decades. Face recognition in video has received significant attention. Not only the wide range of commercial and law enforcement applications, but also the availability of feasible technologies after several decades of research contributes to the trend. Compared to traditional face analysis, video based face recognition has advantages of more abundant information to improve accuracy and robustness, but also suffers from large scale variations, low quality of facial images, illumination changes, pose variations and occlusions.
