VisionPass wins SIA award

Issue 8 2020 News, Access Control & Identity Management

IDEMIA announced that VisionPass, its newly launched advanced facial recognition device, won the SIA New Product Showcase Award in the biometric category, at a virtual ceremony held on 9 July.

IDEMIA’s team defended the company’s submission in front of the judges by giving a ‘behind the curtain’ overview of why and how IDEMIA developed this product, from a blank sheet of paper, listening to partners’ and clients’ pain points, as well as to their needs in terms of performance, reliability, user experience, etc.

The team then explained the technical choices made by its R&D; team to meet these requirements and come up with what it says is now confirmed with this award, as the most advanced facial recognition terminal on the market.

Its 2D + 3D + infrared cameras, combined with AI-trained algorithms, deliver as required:

• Fully hygienic and frictionless – no need to stop and fix the device, it automatically adapts to the size of the person (120-200 cm) and tolerates facial angles.

• Accurate and fast – up to 30 people per minute, up to 40 000 users.

• Effective in full sun or total darkness without the need for any dazzling flash, and works with all skin colours.

• Resistant to identity theft attempts by photo presentation or 3D mask.

“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,” noted Yves Portalier, executive vice president of the Biometric Devices & Automotive Business Unit at IDEMIA. “Since its launch last May, we have experienced a strong demand for VisionPass. Today, with VisionPass and MorphoWave, we offer the most powerful contactless biometric offering on the market.”
