April 11, 2013 - 

EyeLock Inc. has just launched its new HBOX iris biometric access control system at ISC West in Las Vegas.

Capable of authenticating up to 50 people per minute at a distance of four feet, the company says this system has been engineered to meet the needs of rapid-throughput environments such as airports, stadiums and enterprise environments.

“We have worked to leverage next-generation, multi-core processing hardware and video capture components, as well as advancements in our proprietary software applications, to improve our industry-leading technology,” Philip Petracca, Vice President of EyeLock’s Product Strategy and Development said. “The HBOX seamlessly integrates, and is compatible with, the entire suite of EyeLock products, enabling custom solutions – from physical access to logical access.”

According to the company, this new iteration of the HBOX includes video-based real-time iris capture, effective at a distance and also in motion, and it also has the ability to store user records on board as well as various connection options to integrate with existing access control systems.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, EyeLock recently announced a strategic partnership with Stanley Security Solutions to further commercialize EyeLock’s iris biometric products, which includes the HBOX.

Through the partnership, EyeLock’s iris-based identity authentication solutions will be added as an additional differentiator to Stanley’s existing security solutions. In addition, the EyeLock partnership is said to allow Stanley to bolster its global distribution and organic growth strategy.
