Iris recognition for mainstream use

Iris recognition for mainstream use

Fulcrum Biometrics, an international provider, distributor and integrator of biometric systems and devices, signed a reseller agreement with IriTech that will allow Fulcrum Biometrics to sell the company's line of iris recognition scanners. The scanner is an ultra-compact, low-cost, high quality ISO-compliant iris scanner system that makes implementation of biometric iris recognition technology both simple and affordable for use in a wide variety of applications such as access control, time and attendance, point-of-sale, voter registration, population census and mobile banking systems.

With a low volume price point beginning at US$190, Fulcrum Biometrics is now offering the iris recognition scanners as either a complete USB desktop system or as an embedded module for use in portable devices like tablets and smart phones and other larger hardware systems such as entry gates. Both systems include an auto-capture camera module, built-in iris recognition technology and an available PKI-based security infrastructure that ensures complete data security. Furthermore, the scanner runs on Android, Linux and Windows operating systems and supports both remote and on-board ISO-compliant compressed image generation and identification.

The iris recognition algorithms used in the modules were top ranked both in accuracy and interoperability by the National Institute of Standards and Technology's IREX test.

"We are always looking for ways to further the reach of our iris technologies in the marketplace," said Dr. Daehoon Kim, President and CEO of IriTech. "Fulcrum Biometrics is a great partner for us because of their professionalism, their strong reputation in the biometrics market and their worldwide fulfillment capabilities."
