Iris ID, a leading provider of iris recognition technology, and ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Winner, will begin integrating the company’s iCAM R100 face and iris cameras into the Mentalix Fed Submit suite of live scan solutions.
Fed Submit, currently employed by civilian and law enforcement agencies across the county, provides users with intuitive, multi-modal booking and background check systems.
Mentalix’s API products are foundational components in turnkey systems used by many of the top biometrics developers worldwide, and Mentalix’s IAFIS-compliant fingerprint solutions are vital for law enforcement operations on a local and national level.
Iris ID’s IrisAccess™ iCAM R100 cameras will now be made available with Mentalix Fed Submit live scan stations, operating alongside standard fingerprint scanners so iris information may be shared with the FBI as part of its NGI (Next Generation Identification) program.
With Fed Submit it’s possible for agencies to access the FBI’s iris database, as well as create and grow their own local iris archive.
The iCAM R100 performs high-speed dual iris capture and outputs high quality ISO standards compliant images. Both eyes can be simultaneously captured.
ICAM R100 Features Include:
- High Speed Iris Capture & Matching in a compact package
- On or Off Device Iris Template Matching
- Up to 100K User record local 1:N matching in 1 second
- National ID Quality Iris Image – Standards Compliant
- Intuitive User Interface with Virtual LED Indication
- 5 MP face camera White LED flash
- Comfortable Capture Distance 28~38 cm (11~15 Inches)
- Flexible Mounting Options
- USB 3.0 Powered
The R100 provides an unparalleled intuitive user interface, which makes the process easier for the user and operator.
Additionally, the R100 is equipped with an orientation sensor and left and right iris capture management controls which can be selected prior to or during the process.
Dale Remmers, the chief technology officer of Mentalix, said the Iris ID technology was selected for its speed and accuracy in capturing iris data.
He reported that jail officials can often acquire, submit and receive an FBI response to an iris query before a suspect’s booking procedure is completed.
“They can know within a few minutes if the suspect arrested for public intoxication has any felony warrants in other states,” Remmers said.
“We’re excited to be able to offer our law enforcement customers the Iris ID technology as an additional modality within our Fed Submit product.”
The R100 iris recognition technology can obtain a valid identity scan from virtually any suspect.
While fingerprints can be altered intentionally or worn down by jobs in industries such as agriculture, construction and manufacturing, iris patterns remain unchanged through a person’s life.
The iris solution is also contactless, unlike fingerprint pads which need to be wiped clean after each use.
Remmers said law enforcement clients may also use the iris scan feature of the Mentalix Fed Submit system to authenticate the identity of suspects being released from jail.
Mohammed Murad, vice president global sales and business development, Iris ID, said the Mentalix partnership is another example of how Iris ID’s technology is being used to assist law enforcement officials.
“Our iCAM R100 cameras add a valuable dimension to the Fed Submit kiosks” he said.
“The Mentalix solution will make it easier – and faster – for local officials to know who is being booked and released from their facilities.”
Iris ID technology is also being used by governments around the world to authentication at border crossings, national ID and voter registration efforts and by corporations large and small for access control and time and attendance applications.
Iris ID Systems‘ IrisAccess® is the world’s leading deployed iris recognition platform and is used in thousands of locations authenticating the identities of millions of people daily.
