Iris ID Systems, the 2021 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner for Best Facial/Iris Recognition System, is launching two new IrisAccess™ products that will make it easier to quickly and conveniently move large numbers of people through airports, across borders, or accessing many other locations.
The iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar (OU60B) are each new compact and touchless readers that accurately identify people through advanced multi-modal biometric technologies.
For more than 20 years Iris ID has been the global leader in iris recognition technology and today proudly introduced the new readers at the Intersec Dubai tradeshow in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar represent a new class of fused iris and face identification systems.
The self-serve iCAM D2000 is easy to use, with large capture volume and audio/visual prompts guiding users to a frictionless experience.
Additionally, the unit provides automatic face mask detection and an add-on thermal sensor option to grant or deny entry based on a pre-programmed acceptable temperature range.
The IrisBar, a slim, multi-modal reader, is intended for easy kiosk mounting, to help the transportation and other industries integrate it in existing or future kiosks to provide an unparalleled authentication experience.
“We refer to the iCAM D2000 as “Lighthouse” for its ability to help people navigate airport checkpoints while providing fast, flexible, and accurate high-quality images for enrollment and identification for travel and access solutions,” explains Mohammed Murad, vice president, global sales and business development for Iris ID.
“Also, the iCAM D2000 seamlessly integrates with other identity authentication systems to strengthen the bridge between legacy and future solutions.”
“IrisBar is designed to provide the highest quality authentication experience in existing self-service kiosks.”
“The new IrisBar will enable facilities to add high quality and accurate authentication to millions of self-serving kiosks around the world.”
Additional iCAM D2000 key features include:
Two illuminator bars to assist in clear facial recognition and to automatically accommodate for dimly lit areas
A customizable interactive touchscreen option to provide an exceptional user experience
Automatic height accommodation between 1.2 and 2.1 meters
Security countermeasures with industry standard-setting and globally proven set of anti-spoofing and liveness detection
Installation flexibility with mounting options for speed gates, kiosks, desks and other locations.
Integration tools – a robust REST API makes it easy for developers to create unprecedented user experiences.
The unique feature set results from 20-plus years of research and development, leveraging Iris ID’s experience processing billions of identities through its extensive existing product line.
The IrisBar shares many of the same D2000 features, including automatic height adjustment and security countermeasures.
A high-power infrared LCD provides illumination for biometric capture, while an LCD display and speaker guide users through the identification process with visual and audio prompts.
The slim unit captures biometric data from distances up to 750 millimeters
“The IrisBar’s multi-biometric module, compact size, and advanced features make it the premier choice for kiosks requiring identity authentication in aviation and transportation settings,” added Mr. Murad.
“Facilities using the iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar can say goodbye to long lines due to slow, repetitive identification processes.”

The United States was forever changed 20 years ago on September 11th, and we were fortunate to have many of those who responded to those horrific tragedies join us at the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Luncheon.
In the days that followed 9/11, the critical needs of protecting our country catapulted us into new and innovative ways to secure our homeland – which is how many of the agencies and enterprise organizations that are today ‘ASTORS’ Awards Champions, came into being.
Our keynote speaker featured a moving and informative address from TSA Administrator and Vice-Admiral of the United States Coast Guard (Ret), David Pekoske; to our attendees who traveled from across the United States and abroad, on the strategic priorities of the 64,000 member TSA workforce in securing the transportation system, enabling safe, and in many cases, contactless travel.
Legendary Police Commissioner William Bratton of the New York Police Department, the Boston Police Department, and former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department was also live at the event, meeting with attendees and signing copies of his latest work ‘The Profession: A Memoir of Community, Race, and the Arc of Policing in America,’ courtesy of the generosity of our 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Premier Sponsors.
