IriTech wins Frost & Sullivan’s best new product innovation award
Frost & Sullivan has recognized IriTech, Inc. with the 2017 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for ‘New Product Innovation’, based on its recent analysis of the new trends in the iris biometrics industry.
IriTech took the leadership role in developing advanced iris biometric technology and products for the new markets and making it more affordable and accessible to end users on a global scale.
The company’s iris hardware and software are being used by many large-scale projects operated by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the UNHCR, the U.S. government, the Kenyan government, and the Colombian police.
“A significant advantage of IriTech’s biometric solution is that it works under direct sunlight at extended side-gazing angle and it offers built-in iris liveness detection,” said Frost & Sullivan Research analyst Mike Valenti. “These are some of key factors for the application of iris identification in emerging vertical markets such as mobile devices, automobiles, and augmented reality/virtual reality.”
IriTech addresses the unique needs and challenges of its customers by implementing all hardware and software developments in-house to fully optimize its technical prowess.
The company recently unveiled its new Gemini device which captures iris and face images simultaneously only at a glance.
Gemini is available as a stand-alone, networked device, or a component module that can be integrated into larger systems like kiosk, gateway and ATM machines.
IriTech has been supporting the UIDAI’s Aadhaar project to provide more than 1.2 billion Indian citizens with unique ID.
The company provided its IriShield cameras, meeting the project’s requirements for small, interoperable iris recognition cameras with diverse host devices (including mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers).
IriShield are also low-cost, making them ideal for the large volumes of IDs required for the project.
In May, HD Barcode partnered with Iritech to introduce HD IrisCheck, which they claim is the world’s first ID card with biometric iris data embedded in a proprietary 2D code.
