PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sarnoff Corporation today announced a joint live airport security demonstration with Unisys using iris scanning and mobile phones during the Biometric Consortium Conference (BCC) at the Tampa Convention Center from September 21-24.
“Weâ€™re excited to work with Unisys at this yearâ€™s BCC to highlight how our proven biometric technology is ideally suited to airport security and other access control applications where itâ€™s imperative to keep lines moving rapidly.”
Sarnoffâ€™s fast and secure biometric identification solution for high-throughput access control, IOM Passportâ„¢, will be used as part of the demonstration taking place at Sarnoffâ€™s booth #304 and Unisysâ€™ booth #524 during normal show hours.
Participants are asked to register at Unisysâ€™ booth, where they will receive a mock â€œboarding passâ€ sent directly to their mobile phone or PDA. They will then have their mobile boarding pass and iris scanned at Sarnoffâ€™s booth, where their identity will be quickly verified.
Sarnoffâ€™s patented Iris on the MoveÂ® (IOM) biometric identification solution quickly and accurately captures the iris image of subjects as they walk through the system at a standard pace, verifying identities at speeds of up to thirty people per minute. Other iris scanning technologies require users to stop in order to be recognized.
â€œUnlike other biometric ID systems, Sarnoffâ€™s IOM solutions allow users to move quickly and unobtrusively through access control lines, without pausing,â€ said Mark Clifton, Sarnoffâ€™s Acting President and Chief Executive Officer. â€œWeâ€™re excited to work with Unisys at this yearâ€™s BCC to highlight how our proven biometric technology is ideally suited to airport security and other access control applications where itâ€™s imperative to keep lines moving rapidly.â€
IOM is currently deployed in several secure government facilities, private corporations, seaports and airports. The technology is ideal for a wide variety of uses including airport security, banking ID verification, border initiatives, event security, payment systems, and employee access.
