EyeLock, CMITech nano iris biometric reader in mass production
Following a strategic partnership, EyeLock and CMITech have brought the nano iXT biometric iris recognition reader, already in mass production, to market with internationally availability, the companies announced. EyeLock is also working on a thermal temperature sensor to be embedded in the reader as an optional feature.
“The nano iXT’s imaging processor, combined with our latest algorithm, raises the performance bar in the industry,” said EyeLock Chief Executive Officer Jeff Carter in a prepared statement. “The nano iXT also meets the ISO imaging standards, so when you collect the highest quality images during enrollment, you ensure the greatest overall user experience. We believe there is no better product on the market today.”
Given that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought an overall shift in behavior, pushing users away from fingerprint and hand-based systems but also forcing biometric technology developers to come up with technology that works with masks, the iXT reader could be deployed as a multi-use biometric solution, compliant with market demands.
The nano iXT works with all EyeLock readers and is equipped with a number of user-focused features such as include a large LCD touchscreen, dual auto-tilt cameras (iris and face biometrics), audible and visual user guidance, built-in HID card reader and multi-language support. EyeLock says its identity technology delivers top-of-the-line biometric accuracy, convenience and security. The company claims its iris authentication technology analyzes some 500 unique eye characteristics to ensure a seamless and frictionless authentication process, making it a top solution for medical, banking, gaming and automotive.
