Lightspeed Technology announces new interface for face and iris biometrics
Lightspeed Technology has announced the development of a user interface module to support mass deployment of its face and iris biometric solutions.
The touch-free graphic user interface employs human-centered design to enable all possible users to enroll in seconds without instruction, according to the announcement. The interface is displayed on the screen of any PC, laptop, or touchpad connected to Lightspeed’s miniature mounted camera by USB, and provides live video feedback for positioning. The highspeed Lightspeed fusioncam captures a single high-quality face and dual iris image at a distance of about 14 to 20 inches.
“The market now sees an intuitive and positive user experience as a biometric must-have,” says Lightspeed Founder and President Michael Braithwaite. “By combining the highest levels of accuracy with the most advanced and intuitive user interface, we’ve eliminated the most important barriers to mass market adoption.”
Lightspeed says the benefits of the user interface module include decreased time to capture, broad industry applications, high user satisfaction, decreased training and support, and minimal installation time and costs. The Lightspeed facial and iris fusion camera captures an image within 3 to 5 seconds, the company says, with typical FAR fusion scores of 10E-20 to 10E-60 with an FRR below 0.5 percent.
A new, smaller version of the dual face and iris camera was launched by Lightspeed in August.
“This new user interface is a perfect complement to the miniature form factor, simplicity and low cost – while delivering the game-changing benefits only possible with biometric fusion,” adds Braithwaite.
