TBS forms integration partnership to provide access control to businesses
Touchless Biometric Systems has formed an integration partnership with Interflex Datansysteme GmbH to offer combined biometric access control solutions suitable for large and small deployments.
Interflex’s IF-6040 application is integrated with TBS hardware to provide biometric data capture for access rights, as well as management of TBS devices.
The solution provides secure access for high security areas like data centers, as well as time and attendance reporting, with fast and reliable operation, according to the company announcement. TBS devices feature biometric liveness detection, and can hold up to 20,000 biometric templates in identification mode, or 100,000 in verification mode. Users can enroll on the device, through a centralized process or a portable system.
The seamless integration between Interflex and TBS enables automated distribution of biometric data between devices, the companies say, and deletion likewise is distributed immediately to all devices on the network. The integration is flexible enough to support a mix of sensor technologies, and scalable enough to handle an unlimited number of devices in a single installation.
Speech Technology Center physical access control system deployed to university
A biometric facial recognition access control system from Speech Technology Center has been deployed to Krasnoyark’s School of Economics and Commerce building at the Siberian Federal University (SibFU).
The system is one of the first at Russian universities, according to the announcement, with face biometrics deployed to the building’s entrance to identify visitors as they pass through a turnstile with the Smart Tracker.FRS system.
Speech Technology Center CEO Dmitriy Dyrmovskiy says the company’s advanced algorithms, experience with large implementations and close integration with leading manufacturers has reduced processing times to milliseconds.
“This allows for convenient, fast and — crucially — contactless entry,” Dyrmovskiy says. “Speech Technology Center was the first in the world to implement a face recognition system in a sports stadium and it now operates in 14 sports facilities, over 20 transport facilities, and in five ‘Safe Cities.’ The deployment of our face recognition system as part of a campus project could be the starting point for more campus projects in the Siberian region and throughout Russia. These not only involve the already implemented use case, but also others that are especially relevant today, such as distance exams and remote presentations of qualifying papers. We are happy to be part of a process that’s so fundamental to the entire educational sector.”
EyeLock launches iris biometric logical access control
