ISC West 2014: Iris ID Releases iCAM Manager Software Development Kit

Iris ID LogoThis week in Las Vegas the ISC West conference and exhibition is keeping the attention of the biometrics industry. The event is a major happening in the world of physical access control verticals and as was discussed in the latest findBIOMETRICS primer, biometric technology has an immense number of applications when it comes to keeping areas protected via identity management.

Iris ID, formerly LG Iris, has been taking full advantage of the stage that ISC West is providing, having announced three new integrators in the lead up to the conference and, on the first day of the event announcing the release of its new iCAM Manager SDK.

The new iris recognition SDK will allow for the development of identity dependent applications for access control and time and attendance purposes.

“iCAM Manager will deliver a new level of customization tools to our partners and system integrators,” explains Iris ID CEO Charles Koo. “This new product will allow them to develop solutions and connect all enterprise level devices into a holistic identity management infrastructure from mobile to backoffice.  We are very excited to broaden our ecosystem of partners with this offering.  With our continued commitment to open systems architecture, the new iCAM Manager provides protocol based API’s to deliver OS platform independent application support and seamless interface into cloud based solutions with Iris ID iCAMCloudConnect technology.”

Examples of the types of applications that can be developed with the new iCAM Manager SDK can be seen at the Iris ID booth (#17115) on the exhibition floor.

In preparation for ISC West, Iris ID’s vice president of sales, Mohammed Murad, spoke to findBIOMETRICS in an interview about the company’s various projects and initiatives, as well as the viability of biometrics in educational markets, where time and attendance, as well as security deployments, are required to service high traffic areas – a particular strength of iris recognition in physical access.
