Based in the UK, ievo has two fingerprint readers, and the ISC West show will mark the first time they are available in North America. ievo will also introduce some new features at the conference, held in Las Vegas from April 2-4.
ievo biometric access control readers use Lumidigm imaging technology, which leverages both surface and deep subsurface characteristics of the skin.
“The US security market is incredibly active right now and biometrics is becoming more and more common as we begin to use them on our personal possessions such as our mobile phones,” ievo managing director Shaun Oakes said. “Our fingerprint readers have become well-established in the UK as the most reliable and robust on the market, creating superior access control systems for multiple industries. ISC West will be an opportunity for us to get a feel for the markets out there and how we can accommodate and enhance our products for them.”
ievo said that its current security installations include a cash office at a luxury department store in London, as previously reported in BiometricUpdate.com, as well as multiple Premier League Football Clubs.
“ievo has built a terrific line of access control terminals around Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging fingerprint sensors,” Bill Spence, Lumidigm VP sales North America said. “Their readers have been a good fit for many of our customers around the world so I have no doubt they will do well here.”
ievo previously hinted at its expansion overseas last year when it secured funding from the Finance for Business North East accelerator fund.
