Tascent and D-Link ANZ launch new devices for facial biometrics and temperature checks
Tascent has launched a new device with facial recognition and contactless external body temperature scanning to help organizations meet their safety needs while saving time and money and improving user experiences, according to a company announcement.
The new InSight Face EBT, part of Tascent’s Insight family, combines a thermal infrared (IR) camera and high-performance face recognition in a system that meets current FDA guidelines for Telethermographic Systems used for COVID-19 EBT measurement. The new offering associates temperature data with previously-enrolled identities when integrated with the flexible server platform provided by Tascent Enterprise Suite to facilitate screening of travellers, employees or customers.
The company points out that inaccurate or imprecise technology not only may fail to detect infectious individuals, but may provide a false sense of confidence.
D-Link A/NZ meanwhile has launched a Temperature Measuring System based on a Dual Vision Thermal Camera, which can perform up to 30 simultaneous temperature checks within 30 milliseconds, which the company says makes it ideal for large public spaces like airports, hospitals, schools, child care facilities, offices, shopping centers and public transport hubs.
The AI-powered DCS-9500T Kit also includes facial recognition, an early warning management system, Onvif support, and accuracy within 0.3 degrees Celsius.
The camera management software can operate up to 30 cameras per license, and temperature records can be retained for up to 100 days. Temperature is measured with an 8mm fixed thermal lens, and facial recognition images are captured with a 2.7mm to 12mm motorised visible spectrum lens. The uncooled IRFPA 400 by 300-pixel microbolometer detector and digital signal transmission provide high-resolution thermal imaging video, according to the announcement.
