UINT technology talent shifts to MeReal Biometrics in Asia and France

Categories Biometric R&D  |  Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

MeReal Biometrics has announced a pair of appointments to boost its team in Asia and France.

Jun Cheng, who spent the last eight years with UINT in France developing the MeReal Biometrics technology, has relocated to bases in Hong Kong and Shanghai, where she will serve as chief representative Asia and Pacific Rim. In that capacity, Cheng will manage all manufacturing relationships and quality control.

“We are very excited to have Jun onboard, and based in Asia, closer to our suppliers. She has a deep understanding of our patented technology and her experience will greatly impact customer satisfaction,” says MeReal CEO and co-founder Philippe Blot. “Although we are a Hong Kong company, our roots are French and her ability to manage production in Asia while understanding the French development team’s vision is extremely valuable.”

MeReal has also appointed Didier Mobetie as head of research and development, following 10 years in design and development of many fingerprint cards including the MeReal card, according to the announcement. He has experience in many areas of smart card design and strong relationships with suppliers, the company says.

The MeReal card is manufactured in Asia and France, and includes a fingerprint sensor, acoustic one-time password and battery power, in addition to standard access and payment card technologies like RFID, NFC, and EMV chips.

CTO Thomas Le Ouedec joined MeReal from UINT in September, as the company prepares to roll out its fingerprint cards.

ABI Research forecasts the number of biometric payment cards shipped annually in Asia to grow from 1.3 billion in 2017 to 1.8 billion by 2022.
