Corvus releases handheld multimodal biometrics capture and verification solution

November 2, 2015 - 

Corvus Integration announced it has released the Unity Handheld MultiModal Biometric solution, a lightweight and rugged device designed for mobile and dynamic environments in which identities must be quickly captured and verified.

Unity is powered by Raven, Corvus’ identity management software that provides a complete identification and matching capability.

The software offers an intuitive interface that supports the enrollment and export of biographical and biometric data in standard data formats.

Unity can be used for a range of applications, such as population enrollment, border control, passport processing, law enforcement, first responder, and event management.

Corvus has partnered with smart cards and software firm CardLogix to feature its credential validation software, PassCheck For Unity.

The software powers Unity and its optional Unity Passport scanner/reader to capture and verify passports, as well as other Machine Readable Travel Documents (MRTDs), such as ICAO ID-1 cards.

PassCheck can automatically read a credential’s chip data, decode it, and validate its digital signature against published country certificates.

Unity features include multiple biometric modalities (dual iris, face, and dual fingerprint — live and latent), real-time cloud/identity server interaction, on-board persons of interest, management/alarming, real-time video analytics including facial recognition, support for all global network bands via 4G HSPA, dual core 1.8 GHZ Atom Processor (64 bit), 4GB RAM, and certified to FBI SAP 45, IP54, FCC/CE, Eye Safe, and Appendix F (Mobile).

Originally developed for the U.S. military, Unity is field-proven for accuracy, versatility, and ruggedness, giving the device a significant advantage in nearly any mobile ID credential application.

Unity can also be combined with several other solutions to achieve additional functionality, including the Unity Passport scanner/reader, which is a two- and three-line MRZ scanner and NFC reader that mounts directly on Unity for instant adaptation to passport/MRTD reading.

Other solutions include the PassCheck for Unity credential MRTD 2 and 3 line validation software, as well as CardLogix’s compliance watch list modules for PassCheck for Unity for applications in healthcare, national ID, law enforcement and gaming.

Previously reported, Corvus Integration’s FaceCube solution was featured in exhibits hosted by IBM and Dev Technology at the last Global Identity Summit in Tampa, Florida.
