Iris ID technology integrated into GenKey biometric ID platform


Iris ID‘s iCAM TD100 and iCAM T10 iris recognition cameras and IrisAccelerator matching engine have been integrated into GenKey‘s biometric ID platform for an all-in-one multimodal solution for biometric registration and verification initiatives.

GenKey’s ID platform helps governments and organizations improve inclusivity, reduce fraud and improve time and cost efficiencies. According to the announcement, it is designed for capturing biographic and biometric data of individuals in small to large-scale registrations and ensuring that each subject stored is unique. The software has customized modules for voter verification, election management and member verification for healthcare, and other use cases.

Iris ID technology provides a fast, accurate and non-contact method of capturing citizens’ biometrics, identifying people and detecting duplicates. Iris ID solutions are currently being used by public and private organizations across Africa and on five other continents.

“GenKey’s ID platform is being used to identify and verify millions of people in several countries worldwide,” said Arnd Langguth, GenKey COO. “We are experts in fingerprint biometrics, but our ID platform has been designed for multi-modality. Our customers expect proven, secure, high performance, that is why we choose IrisID. IrisID’s IrisAccelerator will plug-in seamlessly into our ID platform.”

Mohammed Murad, vice president of global sales and business development for Iris ID said the company’s technology is a natural fit with GenKey.

In January Iris ID announced its iCAM 7S series had been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
