“Biometrics is the DNA of Invixium and we are proud to drive this next generation of touchless biometric solutions that respond to the real-world needs of the market.” – Shiraz Kapadia, CEO, Invixium
Invixium has tailored its flagship biometric solutions for the pandemic age.
The company has announced that it has developed a new temperature detection capability for its TITAN biometric terminal, enabling it to help screen for individuals who potentially have a high fever in access control settings. The system is based on thermal infrared imaging, and Invixium says it is accurate to within 0.5 degrees Celsius.
Invixium has also launched a software update for its TOUCH 2 biometric device designed to make it fully contactless by way of facial recognition, which should help to further mitigate the potential spread of the novel coronavirus. The company says it can support up to 5000 face images, and perform biometric matching in less than a second.
“The world and life as we know it has changed dramatically, further driving the migration of biometric access control and workforce management technology to touchless solutions that can help preserve the health and integrity of the global workforce,” explained Invixium CEO Shiraz Kapadia in a statement announcing the enhancements. “Biometrics is the DNA of Invixium and we are proud to drive this next generation of touchless biometric solutions that respond to the real-world needs of the market.”
IXM Titan’s temperature-scanning capability, available by way of a new, field upgradeable “Enhancement Kit”, will be available mid-June, as will the Touch 2’s facial recognition software upgrade; both are available for preorder now.
Invixium adds that it has also developed a facial recognition algorithm tailored for use on individuals wearing face masks or veils. The company invites interested parties to get in touch directly regarding this new solution.
