IDEMIA multimodal face and iris biometric device excels at 2018 Biometric Technology Rally

IDEMIA has announced that its OneLook device, which provides rapid capture, matching, and processing of face and iris biometrics, has scored among the leaders in all three performance categories in the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate’s 2018 Biometric Technology Rally.

Systems from 11 companies were tested in March for user satisfaction, effectiveness in capturing and matching, and efficiency of throughputs. Six of the companies entered face-only systems, while IDEMIA and four others competed with multimodal face and iris biometric systems. OneLook was the only combined face and iris system which scored among the top three rally entrants, according to the announcement.

OneLook scored 93 percent in user satisfaction, tops among multimodal systems, and among the top three overall. It was the only multimodal system which met the 5 percent rally threshold for the “failed to acquire face images” within 20 seconds, and scored the highest true identification rate of iris images in both 5 and 20-second scenarios. With a transaction processing time of less than nine seconds, OneLook was second fastest among multimodal entries.

The combined face and iris system provides at-a-distance capture, and can be integrated with existing customer touchpoints, such as kiosks, or provided as a turnkey solution, IDEMIA says.

“The outstanding performance of OneLook at the Biometric Technology Rally continues IDEMIA’s over four decades of leadership in the industry and is a testament to developing the best available solutions for public security, civil identity and border control challenges,” said Donnie Scott, Senior Vice President, Public Security for North America at IDEMIA. “OneLook now joins our long string of successes in product competitions as the ideal mutimodal biometric solution for high-volume identification use cases in which accuracy, speed and reliability are required.”

IDEMIA recently launched a new 3D facial recognition solution for unlocking smartphones, and also introduced a contactless biometric reader with advanced identity spoofing defense and recognition of damaged fingerprints.
