Vision-Box announced that the Hamad International Airport in Qatar now has one of the most automated border control eGates at any airport in the world.
The 62 vb i-match eGates are already being used at HIA, operated by Vision-Box’s front-end border control application, the vb inspector.
The eGates are integrated with the advanced identity management infrastructure of the Ministry of the Interior of the State of Qatar, which ensures the highest levels of security and efficiency.
The multimodal capabilities allow airport officials to use face, iris and fingerprint as biometric identifiers, ensuring that the border is secure, efficient, and passenger-friendly.
“The Middle-East continues to represent an enormous potential,” said Jean-François Lennon, director global business development, sales and marketing at Vision-Box.
“We’ve been witnessing an outburst of initiatives by governments, airports, airlines and private sector adopting digital identity as a means to improve security and efficiency, and also to provide value-added services to their citizens. We look forward to further contributing to their success, both through on-going identity management programs and other GCC initiatives, by continuously delivering stunning innovation and investing in local resources.”
Previously reported, Vision-Box and Biometric Solutions signed a four-year contract with the Danish government for biometric-based solutions and components for both enrollment and automated border control.
