Biometric Partnership For Long Range Iris Recognition

AOptix : 12 March, 2010  (Company News)
AOptix Technologies and Daon have formed an agreement on the use of InSight iris recognition with DaonAdvantage identity assurance with long range capabilities for iris verification
Biometric Partnership For Long Range Iris Recognition
AOptix Technologies, a developer of advanced iris biometrics products and long-distance wireless optical communications solutions, has signed a partnership agreement with Daon to participate in the DaonAdvantage Program. As part of this partnership, the AOptix InSight iris recognition system has been tested, certified and integrated into Daon's identity assurance platform.


Operating at a stand-off distance of 2 meters, the AOptix InSight system offers unprecedented subject usability, enabling fast, effortless and high accuracy biometric authentication for a variety of applications. Employing an open, web services-based integration toolkit and industry standard iris biometric images, the InSight was rapidly integrated into Daon's standards-based software architecture.

"Having AOptix as a partner under the DaonAdvantage Program provides our customers with an excellent further option for iris recognition. Seamless integration into our market-leading DaonEngine will provide customers and system integrators with yet another forward migration option - ensuring their programs can leverage the best industry can offer on a continuous basis," says Conor White, CTO of Daon. "Assurance of interoperability between iris images captured on a variety of devices is critical to use of iris recognition in a full range of government and commercial applications."

As part of the partnership, AOptix has installed its InSight system at the Daon Demo Centre in Reston, VA as a part of a fully integrated iris interoperability demonstration created by Daon. Users enrol their iris images on a traditional short range iris system; an identification application then controls the InSight to capture iris images for authentication and performs the matching function within DaonEngine.

"The superior image quality provided by the InSight combined with its advanced human factors and high speed make it an ideal choice for capture and matching of iris images in demanding high security and high throughput applications," says Kevin Keipper, Director of Government Sales for AOptix. "Potential government and commercial customers can be confident that their use of iris recognition technology will not be impeded by proprietary technologies or incompatibilities when selecting AOptix and Daon as part of their solution."

AOptix and Daon are contemplating further integration and partnering for a variety of customer needs worldwide.
