A number of folks have been asking me about the iFilter I used to extract the facial information from the images. I built my demo on the beta version of the iFilter Shops XMP iFilter. They also have a WMV filter that can be used for video metadata.

Remember that you have to map the crawled properties and name them the same way I did in my demo. That said, I am posting them so you can decipher them and understand HOW I did the transforms. After I get home I’ll post a step-by-step article on how to do it.
