trinamiX in-display biometric face authentication platform improves smartphone design

Face biometric solutions firm trinamiX has announced a new 3D imaging solution for authentication with consumer mobile devices.

The company’s technology can provide secure 3D face authentication powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon AI engine that is invisibly integrated behind a smartphone display, without the ‘notch’ typically associated with 3D technology.

trinamiX face biometrics algorithms can reportedly record 3D features of the face in real-time, as well as recognize real skin.

This would help the system detect presentation attacks utilizing photo-realistic masks, 3D sculptures, or detailed 2D printouts.

The platform, developed for mobile payments and access controls, relies on relatively simple hardware consisting of a standard camera with a silicon sensor (CMOS) and a near-infrared light projector.

This would enable system integration behind the smartphone display, enabling new design possibilities for smartphones.

“We are very pleased to usher in this new era together with the smartphone OEMs”, says Dr. Stefan Metz, director of 3D Imaging at trinamiX. “With our technology, users will no longer have to compromise as they benefit from the most secure privacy protection without sacrificing a user-friendly all-screen display.”

A live demo of the 3D imaging solution behind OLED displays will be officially presented at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai between 23 and 25 of February in Hall N2, D161.
