Frost & Sullivan gives Vision-Box 2013 European Vertical Market Penetration and Leadership Award

March 19, 2013 - 

Frost & Sullivan has given Vision-Box the 2013 European Vertical Market Penetration Leadership Award, based on its recent analysis of the border control and biometrics market.

“Outstanding products, advanced technologies, competitively priced offerings and superior customer service have underpinned Vision-Box’s success,” Frost & Sullivan research analyst Krzysztof Rutkowski said. “Another key element has been its decision to focus on multimodal biometrics, an unobtrusive set of technologies for passengers, which aligns with border control’s current technology requirements.”

Over the last five years, Frost & Sullivan notes that Vision-Box has made strong gains, registering 28-30 percent year-on-year growth. Its strategic focus on facial recognition technology, backed by a unique end-to-end solution, has enabled Vision-Box to win five of the eight deployments in the Schengen area.

“The technology behind Vision-Box’s multimodal biometrics increases throughput and passenger convenience, given that passengers are not required to enroll in the case of the face recognition biometric,” Rutkowski said. “The system simply verifies the passenger with the passport (token), supporting high levels of seamless, non-intrusive security.”

Frost & Sullivan gives our this award each year to a company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the fastest measured rate of change of market share of a specific vertical market.

Reported previously in, Vision-Box recently unveiled its new biometric “periscope” for the long distance simultaneous capture of face and iris data in self-service eGates. This new device, upon detecting a user, automatically adjusts height and illumination to capture ICAO compliant images.
