Iris ID’s New Identity Authentication Readers Speed Travel

Self-service iCAM D2000 and IrisBar are ideal for airports, border crossings and more

Cranbury, N.J. USA – January 18, 2022 – Quickly and conveniently moving large numbers of people through airports, across borders, or accessing many other locations will be easier with two new Iris ID IrisAccess™ products – the iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar (OU60B). Both compact and touchless readers accurately identify people through advanced multi-modal biometric technologies. Iris ID, for more than 20 years the global leader in iris recognition technology, introduced the readers today 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. The unit also provides automatic face mask detection and an addon 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, helping transportation and other industries to 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,” said 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.”

Other features of the iCAM D2000 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,” said Murad. “Facilities using the iCAM D2000 and the IrisBar can say goodbye to long lines due to slow, repetitive identification processes,” Murad said.
