For immediate release: Milton Keynes, United Kingdom – February 16, 2017 – IrisGuard Inc., the world’s leader in secure iris recognition payment technologies, today announced the introduction of the EyeHood® imager which is the latest addition to IrisGuards already extensive EyePay® Platform camera portfolio.
The unprecedented handheld EyeHood® device is the world’s most accurate, portable and convenient Iris & Face imager, ideally well suited for outdoor enrollments and recognitions, where the camera fully shields the user from direct sunlight and other external lighting conditions both at mobile or stationary enrollment and verification stations, thus providing excellent iris quality images and subsequent pristine matching results which is of decisive importance in all-encompassing payment and identity systems.
The EyeHood® was specifically designed to meet the most difficult outdoor registration challenges such as humanitarian itinerant enrollment stations in harsh and severe operational settings where speed, accuracy and immaculate image quality are of prime relevance particularly in demanding financial payment applications for unbanked, non-banked and financially underprivileged communities such as vulnerable refugees and internally displaced person (IDP). The EyeHood® plays a preponderant role during the registration process, by faultlessly providing a unique identity record for each refugee / IDP person which in turn helps protect them and provide the needed access to financial services and food assistance which serves them with dignity and renders them more independent.
The EyeHood® camera features patented IrisGuard countermeasures against all known vulnerabilities in combination with the avant-garde built-in cryptography hardware chipset rendering the EyeHood® camera the most technologically advanced, cryptographically secure and easy-to-use iris imager on the market presently (see brochure for details). The automatic “fine focus” mechanism ensures fine movements of greater than 0.005mm focusing on the surface of the iris and resulting in unmatched clarity under all conditions. Furthermore, the EyePay® Platform generates completely encrypted independent IrisPrints (iris templates) protecting users from identity thief and ensuring their privacy when using the system at all times.
The portable lightweight EyeHood® is powered uniquely by a USB port and is totally integrated into the award winning EyeBank®, EyeCloud® EyePay® and EyeCash® proven iris payment solutions from IrisGuard. The EyeHood® can speedily enroll and recognize eligible beneficiaries in real time outdoor situations anywhere in the world no matter the size of the database in less than three seconds. Whether it is used for delivering food or non-food items or registering thousands of people rapidly, the EyeHood® performance and accuracy are unprecedented in the industry.
The EyeHood® hosts a newly engineered proprietary auto-focus lens together with a patented fast focus adjustment software capability to ensure rapid iris recognition in order to capture a user's in-focused iris image at extremely fast speeds, second to none in the industry. This is an essential component conducive to streamlining the capture process and to ensure that only flawless iris images are captured hence reducing the overall acquisition time which is of critical significance in holistic iris recognition applications. Unlike other similar-looking imagers on the market today, the automatic “fine focus” feature with its amazing mega-pixel sensor ensures unprecedented quality suitable for amassing databases of millions of people in rapid time without sacrificing iris image quality unlike inferior fixed-depth-of-field iris cameras on the market today.
The primary purpose of the EyeHood® camera, according to Imad Malhas, CEO & Founder of IrisGuard Inc., is to be able to offer to our United Nations humanitarian agencies and international NGO customers a unique iris camera enabling operational staff to enroll and recognize millions of vulnerable beneficiaries they serve daily with perfect iris quality images for authentication services such as financial inclusion, remittances, cash withdrawals and food assistance in real time at remote locations throughout the world with ease and convenience meeting the highest industry standards in iris recognition obtainable today. “We specifically designed and engineered the EyeHood® imager for crucial outdoor registration and recognition in-order to provide maximum accuracy, speed and operational efficiencies for our customers, with no requirement for a card, pin, password, phone or any other token that can be lost, forged or stolen” commented Malhas.
The cost-effective patented EyeHood® sets new heights in iris recognition camera technology and is globally available for IrisGuard worldwide deployments today.
