EyeLock LLC, the leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, announced today its new nano iXT® iris recognition reader is now in full production and available globally. The nano iXT is the first product born from EyeLock’s strategic partnership with CMITech. EyeLock is also in the process of developing a thermal temperature sensor, which will be incorporated into the nano iXT and offered as an optional module.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, users of biometric technology have moved away from touch-based biometrics such as fingerprint and hand-based systems. Furthermore, providers of facial recognition systems are struggling to make their products “workaround” masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) while maintaining their accuracy. Today’s decision-makers are looking for multi-use biometric products that are very accurate, fast, intuitive, feature-rich, and affordable. EyeLock’s nano iXT solution meets all those requirements.
The nano iXT is fully interoperable with the current EyeLock product line, including the indoor nano NXT and outdoor nano EXT readers. The nano iXT is available at a price point never attained before for a biometric product with its feature set. Some of the nano iXT’s customer-driven features include a large LCD touchscreen, dual auto-tilt cameras (iris and face), audible and visual user guidance, built-in HID card reader, and multi-language support. Jeff Carter, Chief Executive Officer of EyeLock explained, “The nano iXT’s imaging processor, combined with our latest algorithm, raises the performance bar in the industry. The nano iXT also meets the ISO imaging standards, so when you collect the highest quality images during enrollment, you ensure the greatest overall user experience. We believe there is no better product on the market today.”
EyeLock’s identity technology provides an unprecedented level of convenience and security with unmatched biometric accuracy, making it the most proven way to authenticate identity, aside from DNA. EyeLock’s proprietary iris authentication technology looks at almost 500 unique characteristics from both eyes and provides an ultra-fast, user-friendly authentication experience. EyeLock’s iris technology has been embedded in other products and is suitable for use in many market segments including medical, banking, gaming, and automotive.
