Invixium upgrades facial recognition on IXM TITAN to work with masks
Multipurpose biometric device IXM TITAN has been upgraded by Invixium with two new options that make it possible for a person’s face to be accurately identified while having a mask on.
The solution comes as plans are gearing up for businesses and physical interactions to fully restart after many months of a shutdown due to restrictions triggered by the coronavirus pandemic across the globe.
The new facial recognition features will be incorporated into the upcoming release of IXM WEB 18.104.22.168 and TITAN firmware version 22.214.171.124., the company said in a statement. It added that with the upgrade, current and future users of the device can perform mask detection and touchless identification for people wearing masks with facial recognition.
Invixium said with the new features, IXM TITAN has the ability to determine if a visitor or an employer has a mask on. It can also inform them to put on one in the event that access to an area is authorized only for persons wearing them. The company touts the facial recognition feature as a plus for businesses where workers are obliged to put on masks, as employees can be conveniently identified without having to pull off their masks.
“Invixium takes pride in constantly adapting to exceed the market’s expectations. Adding mask detection and face recognition while wearing a mask is the need of the hour and a natural step as we work with our partners to ensure businesses can reopen safely. We know the world has changed, and we work tirelessly to assure health, safety, security, and productivity for our customers as the market continues to evolve,” Shiraz Kapadia, CEO and President of Invixium said.
Invixium’s mask detection and facial recognition features have been designed to work with the IXM TITAN Enhancement kit, which provides solutions for the coronavirus pandemic. The Enhancement Kit, the company said, allows IXM TITAN to carry out temperature screening at the inner canthus (tear duct) – the most accurate method of touchless body temperature assessment – at a rate of 12 to 15 users per minute with plus or minus 0.5 degrees Celsius (0.9 degrees Fahrenheit) accuracy.
Other new features such as IXM Health also come with the new IXM WEB 126.96.36.199 update.
