TBS introduces combined iris and face biometric reader
TBS (Touchless Biometric Systems) Biometrics has unveiled a biometric reader which combines face detection with iris recognition to provide its highly accurate iris algorithm in a more convenient and user-friendly way.
The TBS 2D Eye detects faces to automatically adjust itself to the user’s height while its iris sensor captures images of both eyes for a level of accuracy which TBS says is guaranteed to be the highest delivered by modern technology. The system also enables multi-factor authentication with a PIN or RFID.
The reader is manufactured by CMITech, and is fully integrated with TBS’ web-based software and server biometric core. The 2D Eye’s screen allows users to see themselves as they are verified, and to interact with and customize the device. Pilot project users report that it meets their expectations for “touchless,” convenient, and rapid identification, the company says.
The TBS 2D Eye is recommended by the company for use in corporate office, airport, government, healthcare, research center, and critical infrastructure applications.
TBS also qualified for the finals of IARPA’s Nail to Nail Fingerprint Challenge earlier this year.
