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.
