New SecuGen and FaceFirst products among biometric technologies to be demonstrated at ISC West

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

ISC West 2019 will feature demonstrations of several new biometric technologies this week, with notable emphasis on easing deployments and building security.

SecuGen will demonstrate its new Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader, which is now compatible with Apple iOS. The Unity 20 features SecuGen’s U20-A flagship fingerprint sensor, is elegantly designed, low-cost, and fully programable, according to a company announcement.

Developers can leverage the new iOS support to build fingerprint biometric applications for the iPhone and iPad using the Unity 20, and the device can be used out of the box with an API call to SecuGen’s Fingerprint Management System, or custom programmed to suit specific needs. The Unity 20 comes with a complete Linux development environment, algorithms for fingerprint capture and NIST MINEX-compliant template extraction and matching, the OpenSSL cryptography library, and a 1 GHz CPU. Encrypted templates can be stored and processed on the device for additional security.

FaceFirst is demonstrating its Two-Minute Deployment at the conference, which drastically reduces the time and effort necessary for enterprise face recognition platform installation by identifying networked cameras and automatically assigning them to servers. The company will also highlight its integration with Genetec Security Center, which provides enhanced situational awareness, expedited investigations, and actionable analytics.

Security technology company Knightscope has developed facial recognition software based on deep learning for its K1 security robot for use in workplace violence prevention (WVP) programs in American workplaces. The software is now available in beta, and the company says it is currently being tested by Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California.

The company will show off the technology at ISC West, and also lead a discussion for registered attendees on “Leveraging Autonomous Security Robots with Facial Recognition Software for Your Workplace Violence Prevention (WVP) Program.”

CyberExtruder is launching its new Aureus 3D-AI Enterprise facial recognition platform at ISC West. The new platform supports large-scale deployments with a federated architecture for a multi-site, geographically dispersed environment, and facilitates information sharing across multiple camera networks with real-time interoperability, according to the announcement. The company touts its speed in NIST and DHS testing, and Aureus 3d-AI Enterprise’ ability to detect, track, and match faces in critical situations, even if they are obscured by glasses, captured in low resolution, or at severe angles.

IDScan.net will have its ID scanning and facial biometric technologies for physical security on display at ISC West. The company will show off its VeriScan Online cloud-based visitor management platform among a full suite of solutions IDScan.net says can scan, verify, collect, and analyze identity data with 100 percent accuracy.

UnionCommunity will also showcase its new brand, biometric product series, and mission plan at the conference.

ISC West 2019 will be held in Las Vegas April 10 to 12.
