Tascent releases compact iris and face recognition system

January 12, 2017 - 

Tascent has released Tascent InSight One, a compact iris and face recognition system designed for high throughput enrollment, identification, and authentication.

InSight One can be integrated in a range of next generation applications in consumer travel and border management, access control, financial services, and identity programs.

The system captures dual iris and face images in about 2 seconds, at a distance of 0.5 to 1.0m (20 to 40 inches) and easily accommodating users across a wide range of heights.

The intuitive user interface facilitates a fully automated process to easily capture biometrics for even first time users, delivering images that meet or exceed demanding ISO / ICAO standards for format and quality.

“After years of development leveraging the experience from processing tens of millions of passengers a year in our global deployments, Tascent is tremendously excited to announce the availability of InSight One,” says Joey Pritikin, VP of marketing and product management at Tascent. “We set out to create a product with the versatility of combined iris and face capture that would change perspectives on usability, performance, and design for biometric systems. The result is something that really connects with people while delivering outstanding biometric performance, unlike anything of its kind.”

Featuring a sleek, modern design, InSight One’s customizable LCD and LED user interface can be integrated into an aluminum enclosure to deliver a natural, unified, and seamless user experience.

Tascent offers a range of mounting options to enable seamless integration of InSight One in desktop, e-Gate, and kiosk applications as well as custom color options to aesthetically match its deployed environment.

The self-contained device provides Ethernet and USB interfaces to integrate with networked, PC-connected, and embedded solutions, while using leading encryption technologies to ensure data is protected in-transit and at-rest.

Tascent has already received its first production orders for InSight One, and will be deploying the system in consumer-facing applications focusing on travel and identity in early 2017.

Previously reported, Tascent launched its latest generation mobile biometric device Tascent M6, which can be used with the Apple iPhone 6 or 6s to form a multimodal biometric platform for a broad range of identification applications.
