IDEMIA’s offering for identity verification

OneLook is a multi-biometric identity verification solution that provides accurate, from-a-distance face and iris capture together with biometric matching in a single device. Having a commitment towards continuous improvement, IDEMIA developed a second generation of the OneLook device, which is set to enable organisations with increasingly faster walk-through capture with ‘outstanding’ image quality, thus providing improved matching accuracy. OneLook Gen2 features a ‘sleek’ and integrated design and serves an extensive range of applications of the likes of border control and smart boarding for a more safe and hassle-free passenger experience.

What is more, the MorphoWave technology is a fingerprint solution aimed at frictionless processing at land, air, and sea borders. As per the information detailed in the press release, MorphoWave TP provides contactless, on-the-move ten-fingerprint capture, four fingers simultaneously and a thumb, in any direction, producing high-quality fingerprint images in as little as a second, with a simple wave of the hand. Furthermore, being compatible with existing contact databases and traditional contact scanners, the biometric solution is suitable for a broad range of use cases such as border control.

Identity technology company IDEMIA has announced the launch of two contactless biometric terminals that aim to expedite the traveller identity verification processes.

The announcement details that the new IDEMIA products are designed with the goal of furthering the contactless biometric standard and highlighting what biometric technologies can bring forth to everyday lives. Travellers nowadays are more willing to share their biometrics for a bettered experience, with an IATA Global passenger survey showcasing that 75% of passengers would be eager to do so.

Additionally, as data privacy remains at the core of IDEMIA’s solutions, its products are developed according to Privacy by Design and by Default principles, and the company is committed to protecting and securing citizens’ privacy with a high level of data protection for identity identification and authentication technologies.

Commenting on the launch, Matt Cole, CEO/Group Executive Vice President, Public Security and Identity at IDEMIA stated that the new products provide accurate, on-the-move, and contactless identity capture and verification, incorporating the company’s advanced biometric algorithms and showcasing its commitment towards innovation and continuous improvement.
