The paper considers the problem of increasing the efficiency of facial identification algorithms by video. We propose an approach based on the key video frames selection using various techniques for assessing frame quality. The experimental comparison of the traditional quality assessment methods based on Brightness, Contrast, as well as deep learning technology are considered. We trained several lightweight convolutional neural networks using the methods of fine tuning and knowledge distillation in order to increase the efficiency of the key frame selection stage. The proposed algorithms are compared with the traditional face recognition approach for each frame, and with the well-known clustering methods.
