Aratek set to introduce line of facial recognition terminals at SDW Asia 2019
Aratek will introduce its TruFace line of facial recognition terminals at SDW Asia 2019 next week in Singapore. This roll out will mark Aratek’s entry into the facial recognition segment of the biometric identification and authentication market.
“TruFace is the latest in a series of innovations to be hatched as Aratek ramps up its drive to become the go-to provider of superior biometric systems that actually solve customers’ needs,” says Samuel Wu, Aratek’s VP for Sales, International Business Department. Wu notes that the Aratek TruFace series live facial recognition feature is made possible by Aratek’s patented TrustFace algorithm. “Since it’s algorithm-based, the live face detection system is not hardware-dependent which makes TruFace an inexpensive and reliable solution for many identification and authentication applications.”
According to the announcement, TruFace terminals are equipped with a built-in HDR dual-camera system that detects ambient lighting levels and then controls the near-infrared LED accordingly, allowing high quality captures in all lighting conditions.
Aratek will also be showcasing its suite of fingerprint-based identification and authentication terminals including the Marshall, an all-in-one solution that integrates registration, matching, printing, and other functions seamlessly into one portable module which can be deployed anywhere.
“Financial services, border control, social welfare distribution, voter registration and authentication, census, SIM card activation, and mobile time and attendance management are just some of the applications that benefit immensely from Aratek’s TruFace and Marshall,” Wu explains
