Biometrics industry gears up for connect:ID; Iris ID, Jenetric, Cyberlink and Get Group announce demos
Connect:ID 2020 is taking place this week in Washington, D.C., with presentations and demonstrations from many of the biometrics industry’s leading technology suppliers, as well as expert speakers and panels discussing the pressing issues of the day in secure identity.
Iris ID is supporting the event as a gold sponsor, and in addition to sponsoring the Connect:ID app, will participate prominently in both the educational and technology showcase portions.
Director of Product Management and Market Development Tim Meyerhoff is scheduled to be part of several presentations on topics such as government and law enforcement use of biometrics, the current and future state of iris and facial technology quality, and deploying multi-modal identification devices.
At booth #413, Iris ID will demonstrate its eGate-mountable prototype reader, which is capable of capturing face and iris images simultaneously, panning and tilting to accommodate people of different heights, including in wheelchairs. The USB handheld iCAM TD100A for field use, the iCAM M300 for facial and iris image capture with an available snap-on Sherlock fingerprint scanner from Integrated Biometrics, and the OU75 camera module, which is targeted to law enforcement, corrections, and airport use, will also be on display at Connect:ID.
Jenetric launches mobile FAP 60 fingerprint scanner
The latest addition to Jenetric’s ten-print mobile fingerprint biometric enrollment Livetouch Quattro Compact product line is being launched at Connect:ID.
The Livetouch Flipcase provides the FBI and BSI-certified FAP 60 scanner as a smartphone attachment. It can be operated with one hand by a law enforcement or border control officer due it foldable snap-in design, and the smartphone faces the officer to prevent unwanted glances at its display. The smartphone is pushed into the case, and securely connects to the scanner without a visible cable or requiring a manual connection. The smartphone can be used for taking facial images, reading passports, or sending and receiving data in either open or closed position, and the scanner is powered by the smartphone, requiring no separate battery.
“With the LIVETOUCH Flipcase, we have succeeded in combining the increasing and diverse requirements for mobile identity verification based on fingerprints in a single device: the use of commercially available smartphones, an FBI-certified FAP 60 scanner and a compact and secure connection between the two devices.” says Roberto Wolfer, CEO of Jenetric. “The new device combination addresses the growing demand for non-stationary enrollment and verification of identity anywhere, at any time, without compromising on fingerprint quality. The LIVETOUCH Flipcase is ideal for border control, law enforcement, and commercial applications where mobility, superior fingerprint image quality and operator safety are critical considerations.”
The Livetouch Mobile line was launched in 2017, and was adopted by German Federal Police to implement in the EU Entry/Exit System last year.
CyberLink demos FaceMe
CyberLink will showcase its facial recognition engine FaceMe for a variety of use cases including access control, multimodal biometric enrollment, authentication and analytics at Connect:ID booth #545.
According to the company announcement, CyberLink’s constant innovation allows it to meet the highest accuracy and security standards, with 99.5 percent accuracy at 0.0001 FAR. FaceMe supports Windows, Linux, Android and iOS implementations and a variety of hardware configurations.
“Edge computing and facial recognition are taking identity verification and authentication technologies to a whole new level,” comments Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “The precision of CyberLink’s AI-based facial recognition in conjunction with its flexibility and performance makes FaceMe the world’s top facial recognition engine for identity authentication.”
DSS introduces digital ID platform
Document Security Systems (DSS) is introducing its Digital Smart Card platform at Connect:ID 2020, and will demonstrate the next-generation digital identity solution for the government and identification markets.
“DSS’s Digital Smart Card platform is the only total ID solution that associates the physical card to the digital card,” states DSS Plastics group VP Jaeson Caulley. “This allows government institutions to take a phased approach rather than to ‘go digital’ overnight, which will help to ease the transition for card holders.”
DSS has also been a member of the Document Security Alliance (DSA), a group bringing together government, industry and academia, for ten years. DSA is a strategic partner of Connect:ID.
The event will also feature a showcase of the new version of GET Group North America’s CoreID Platform with facial recognition authentication, and DHS S&T will provide detailed instructions for its 2020 Privacy Technology Demonstration.
Connect:ID 2020 takes place March 11 and 12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
