AOptix Technologies Launches InSight Duo: Simultaneous Iris and Face Biometric System

AOptix Technologies Inc, (AOptix) a developer of advanced biometrics-based identity solutions, today (September 27) announced the latest addition to its family of biometric products, the InSight Duo, the world’s first biometric system with simultaneous ISO standards-compliant iris and face capture. 
Positioned to meet the high throughput requirements of border and aviation security, InSight Duo is designed to provide effortless iris and face capture within seconds from a distance of two meters.
By adding a face recognition quality image capture to the InSight iris recognition system, the Duo offers versatility in a single, integrated unit.  AOptix says that its “rapid collection of a dual modality record enables flexible usage of either of these biometric measurements (iris or face), allowing for seamless migration from legacy face recognition systems or utilisation of both biometrics for standards compliance, outlier handling, or even biometric fusion.” 
The manufacturer says that the new device is particularly well suited to enrolment and authentication applications, including registered or trusted traveler programmes and expedited processing at immigration or airport security checkpoints, “where speed and accuracy are critical”.  AOptix also states that because the InSight Duo is fully automated, it is simple and intuitive even for non-technical or non-acclimated users, and can help streamline otherwise complicated processing.
“We’re seeing a great deal of interest in iris recognition as the biometric of the future, and a steady reliance on face recognition due to the pervasiveness of the technology,” said Joseph Pritikin, Director of Product Marketing for AOptix.  “With the InSight Duo, there are no compromises.  It combines the unparalleled uniqueness of iris with the ubiquity of face.”
The new InSight Duo is making its public exhibition debut at the Biometrics Consortium Conference, September 27th – 29th in Tampa, Florida.
