IriTech, Inc. has entered a co-promotion agreement with fingerprint sensor developer Egis Technology Inc., which is expected to create more opportunities for the two companies in the consumer technology space while focusing on the mobile industry.

With an extensive background in iris recognition technologies, IriTech provides several innovative approaches aimed at emerging industries such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and automotive.

The company has made significant investments in research and development to solve various challenges faced by iris recognition technology.

IriTech has developed solutions for ‘side-gazing capturing’ and ‘capturing under sunlight’ in addition to the proven top performance of FAR/FRR.

The company plans to market iris recognition-based authentication solutions to automotive manufacturers and vendors including a long-range iris camera with ‘side-gazing’ and ‘capturing under bright sunlight’ capabilities.

Egis Technology, which has more than 100 patents worldwide, offers capacitive fingerprint sensors that offer high resolution, small size, and low cost.

The company’s proprietary matching algorithm offers the best FAR/FRR performance in the market while providing a high level of security and convenience.

“Recently, IriTech is focusing on promoting its technology to mobile devices and VR/AR companies amid the importance of privacy and security,” IriTech CEO Daniel Kim said. The VR and AR industry will become a huge market for IriTech and we already have our solution evaluated by big players. We plan to target more mobile, VR and AR manufacturers with Egis Tech’s sales force.”
