Launched in May 2020, VisionPass solution has awaken as strong interest of biometric key players

The award received by IDEMIA on its new solution confirms its positioning as a leader in frictionless biometrics for Security Market

On July 9th, a virtual ceremony was held by SIA – Security Industry Association to announce that VisionPass, the new facial recognition device launched by IDEMIA last May as the winner of the SIA New Product Showcase Award.

IDEMIA’s team presented the technology in front of a jury and explained the “backstage” overview of how and why the product was developed taking into account the problems of partners, clients’ pain points, as well as the need of high performance device in terms of user experience, trustiness, etc.

Main technical choices made by R&D team were explained in order to reach very high exigency to develop the most advanced facial recognition terminal on the market. Now, confirmed by the award.

Infrared, 2D and 3D cameras combined with AI – Artificial Intelligence algorithms, deliver an unmatched performing device:

  • Fully hygienic and Contactless – the device automatically adapts to the size of the person (120-200cm) and tolerates facial angles – no need to stop and fix the device.
  • Accurate and fast – up to 30 people per minute, up to 40,000 users
  • Powerful in full sun or total darkness without the need for any dazzling flash, and works with all skin colors
  • Contrary to identity theft attempts by photo presentation or 3D mask.

In 2018, IDEMIA received a resembling award for its other contactless solution, MorphoWave Compac which is capable to scan 4 fingerprints in less than 1 second by the wave of a hand, fully hygienic and frictionless. The new SIA award is about a face recognition solution that confirms the hegemony of IDEMIA as the leader in the biometric field and augmented identity, which included the segment of contactless security applications.

We did not develop the most advanced terminal just for the sake of the innovation challenge, but because it was necessary to meet all needs expressed by our customers: speed, accuracy, reliability and a true frictionless user experience. Since its launch last May, we have experienced a strong demand for VisionPass. Combined with this prestigious SIA award, this is indeed a true reward for all our teams who worked on this new product. Today, with VisionPass and MorphoWave, we offer the most powerful contactless biometric offer on the market.
