Delta ID’s patent-pending ActiveIRIS technology enables users to unlock the smartphone, authenticate mobile payments, and access a range of online services by simply looking into the smartphone’s camera.
The ActiveIRIS technology combines advanced software algorithm with inexpensive, easy to integrate hardware to make iris recognition fast and reliable in conditions and environments where end users typically operate their mobile devices.
“It has been a privilege to collaborate with Fujitsu in bringing the world’s first mobile phone with iris recognition capability to market,” said Salil Prabhakar, president and CEO of Delta ID. “We now look forward to consumers widely adopting this technology to make their mobile experience more convenient and secure.”
Previously reported, Delta ID closed a $5 million Series A financing led by Intel Capital and a few strategic investors, bringing Delta ID’s total capital raised to date to $6.1 million.
