Easy to use and simple to configure, the Panasonic Iris Reader provides high quality biometric security, using the latest in iris technology. Fast and effective, it obtains recognition in a mere 0.3 seconds, and has a false acceptance rate of virtually zero. The Panasonic Iris Reader quickly acquires digital images without the use of lasers or annoying bright lights. It offers multifactor authentication, by combining biometrics with smart card technology. One of its benefits over other security methods is that the human iris stabilizes between the age of 6 months and two years, not changing for the rest of one's lifetime. This practically eliminates the need for re-enrollment; a problem more often faced by other biometric templates that are prone to change, such as fingerprint or facial recognition. Identity theft is minimized by the fact that every single iris is unique and cannot be shared, lost or duplicated. Packed with features, the Panasonic Iris Reader includes dual mirrors to improve eye alignment and a distance indicator. It is not hindered by the presence of glasses or contact lenses and is facial recognition ready. A Voice Guidance System offers operational assistance and recognition results, and is available in fourteen languages.
