Shuttle launches new facial recognition hardware


Shuttle Computer Group has announced the launch of its new all-in-one facial recognition hardware, along with optional contactless card and fingerprint readers.

“More and more companies are using security devices for employee access, time stamping and verification of employee locations in case of an emergency, but high cost has been prohibitive,” Marty Lash, the company’s director of sales and marketing said. “Now Shuttle has an affordable, all-in-one product, making it easier for integrators to develop a customized solution for any security installation.”

The new hardware — the HR70 – is aimed at commercial, industrial or institutional customers, and according to the company, an SDK and API will soon be available. The system is powered by an Intel Celeron processor and uses to high-definition cameras.

According to the company, the Hr70 will be available mid-July through ASI, Ingram Ma Labs and Synnex.

Facial recognition is a growing focus, as the technology required is increasingly accessible and reliable. In addition, adoption is growing rapidly.

According to a recent CNN/Time/Orc poll, 79% of Americans are in favor of using facial recognition at various locations and public events, and 81% support expanded camera surveillance on streets and in public places.

Shuttle will be showcasing its new HR70 at InfoComm in Orlando, set to take place this week, June 12-14, 2013.
