CMITech introduces contactless biometric facial recognition for access control, attendance
CMITech has released the NovaFace contactless biometric facial recognition system equipped with what the company describes as a next-generation AI-based matching algorithm, targeting access control and time and attendance deployments.
The system can recognize a face at up to 1.6 meters, and it can be anchored to a wall, turnstile or speed-gate for access control and time and attendance deployments. It delivers a seamless and frictionless user experience, as it comes equipped with an auto-zoom display function for easier face positioning, according to the company announcement. The system leverages advanced neural networks for matching accuracy.
“The biometrics industry is now urgently migrating to contactless solutions,” said Dr. JJ Chae, the CEO of CMITech, in a prepared statement. “Our new NovaFace product not only fully addresses the very serious mandate of avoiding any user contact with an authentication device, but also delivers on expectations of a great user experience—fast, smooth and effortless.”
Since NovaFace and CMITech’s EF-45 dual iris recognition technology share the same integration architecture, companies that have already rolled out EF-45 will easily install NovaFace. CMITech’s EF-45 solution has been deployed by the Hallym University Medical Center hospital in Anyang, Korea for biometric access management.
“The recent advent of neural network-based face algorithms has completely changed the biometrics landscape,” said Phil Tusa, the COO of CMITech, in a prepared statement. “These algorithms deliver far superior accuracy levels than just a couple of years ago, putting face recognition on a par with the best of single fingerprint sensors. Without question, the biometrics world will now quickly migrate toward contactless face recognition solutions like the NovaFace.”
