It was in an unusual and strange context that IDEMIA was pushed to introduce its latest biometric reader for its frictionless access control division, the VisionPass.

Indeed, this new face reader was supposed to be introduced during the international Las Vegas show ISC WEST initially scheduled March 17 -20th. This show was unfortunately postponed next June due to the health crisis of COVID-19  the whole world is currently facing.

That being said, let’s focus on the new benchmark for contactless biometrics market based on facial recognition. The VisionPass aims at replacing the 3D Face Reader, very well known by a lot of users since it was the precursor of facial recognition based on 3D and not 2D as most of the existing readers on the market at the time.

VisionPass brings us to the next level since it is based on a combination of 3D, 2D and infrared facial recognition but above all it is equipped with artificial intelligence just like the MorphoWave Compact, which allows it to achieve very high performance.

It naturally inherits of all the know-how of the world leader in biometrics IDEMIA  with its manufacturing skills and exceptional technical characteristics. Being IP65 (fully protected against dust. Protected against water jets from all directions with the lance) and IK08 (Resistance to an impact of 5 joules. Equivalent to the impact of a mass of 1.7 kg falling from a 3 meters high), it can be easily deployed both  indoor and outdoor and resist all types of environments.

This access control device reflects many qualities, wide angle capture, support face angles and face changes, near-motion 1-second verification whatever the light conditions, up to 40,000 users, high throughput, completely hands-free, anti-fraud systems, etc … and much more.

Do not hesitate to contact Biotime teams for further information about the new VisionPass.

New partnership between Idemia and Japan Aerospace Corporation (JAC) at Level5 stadium, Fukuoka, Japan. The stadium will do a trial for MorphoWave Compact, the best contactless / frictionless biometric device in the market. With a simple gesture – wave of hand – the biometric terminal can scan 4 fingerprints using an optical technology enhanced by Artificial Intelligence.

Presented in 2019 on a final match of J2 league, the MorphoWave Compact, MWC, caught attention of Japanese authorities and proof of concept took place involving two scenario:

  • Ticketless admissions for pre-registered customers
  • Age verification for drinks and food collection at counter

“Our goal is to enable frictionless access everywhere without compromising security,” said Nobuyoshi Nezu, Managing Director and Vice President of Sales for Idemia Japan in a prepared statement. “IDEMIA has developed MorphoWave Compact, a touchless fingerprint device that enables this, by combining a high level of biometric security with a unique user experience, convenience and speed, which is what environments like a stadium need. We are excited to partner with Japan Aerospace Corporation on this very promising case and look forward to a full rollout of our MorphoWave devices at Level5 Stadium.”

Powered by AI capabilities, the MWC has better performance on matching, storing and responding back a command, by consequence it increases the user experience, so aimed at big-ticket events as sports games.
