Vision-Box® presents the Passenger Experience of the Future at the “Europe Meets Americas” conference

Lisbon, May 6, 2013 –Vision-Box® will show at the “Europe Meets Americas” conference its vision of the Passenger Experience, by presenting a new process ranging from check-in through to boarding, using multimodal biometrics (face, finger and iris) and highlighting an integrated process approach supported by a common platform, which not only provides passengers with a more pleasant journey but also guarantees total border security.
The solutions that will be shown are part of the “THINK TRAVELER” framework developed by Vision-Box®, which puts the passenger at the centre of the airport experience and includes multimodal biometrics-based solutions that encompass automated border control, security check-point and self-boarding eGates, enrolment/check-in kiosks and desktops.
All systems are deployed on top of vb i-shield, an end-to-end communication platform which acts as the middleware between the airport’s peripherals and backend systems, providing the user interfaces that allow the airport, airlines and border control representatives to access all relevant operational and business information regarding the passenger’s journey.
Miguel Leitmann, Senior Vice President of Vision-Box® S.A., highlights that “we are very excited to present this integrated offer in a conference that joins together Europe and the Americas due to the significant benefits it delivers to all stakeholders in the region in terms of empowering the passenger, delivering a holistic view and management of all systems to airports and airlines and providing tighter security and efficiency gains to border control authorities.
Vision-Box® will showcase its ground breaking solutions for border control and ID management at the “Europe Meets Americas” conference, taking place in Aruba, from the 5th to the 8th of May, 2013.
