Iris ID has launched two new multimodal biometric offerings aimed at the travel sector at the Intersec Dubai trade show in the United Arab Emirates. Dubbed the iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar, both offerings enable fast, high-volume throughput.
The latest addition to Iris ID’s iCAM product line combines iris recognition and facial recognition, as well as automatic mask detection and an optional thermal sensor add-on. The biometric terminal is designed with a strong focus on ease of use, automatically adjusting for the user’s height (between 1.2 and 2.1 meters) and featuring a customizable touchscreen interface. Built-in illuminator bars help to ensure that the user’s face is clearly defined.
“We refer to the iCAM D2000 as ‘Lighthouse’ for its ability to help people navigate airport checkpoints while providing fast, flexible and accurate high-quality images for enrollment and identification for travel and access solutions,” said Iris ID Global Sales and Business Development VP Mohammed Murad in a statement. “Also, the iCAM D2000 seamlessly integrates with other identity authentication systems to strengthen the bridge between legacy and future solutions.”
While the iCAM D2000 can be installed in a variety of settings, such as speed gates, desks, and so on, the IrisBar is a slim biometric reader designed specifically for kiosk mounting. It shares a number of the same features as the iCAM D2000, including multimodal support for both iris and face biometrics. It also shares the D2000’s emphasis on the user experience, with infrared LCD illumination, an LCD display, and a speaker system to guide the user through the scanning process.
“The IrisBar’s multi-biometric module, compact size and advanced features make it the premier choice for kiosks requiring identity authentication in aviation and transportation settings,” explained Murad.
The new solutions and their focus on air travel applications help to illustrate the broad applicability of Iris ID’s biometric technology. Just last month, the company announced that Tracy Inc., a Michigan-based provider of labor management solutions, had integrated Iris ID’s tech into its lineup of time and attendance solutions for businesses and higher education.
