Iris Recognition on PC

IriTech has revealed a new product line called IriVault, an iris camera system designed specifically for laptop and desktop computers.

IriVault is a compact and lightweight camera under 3.5 inches designed to be connected externally, as an encased product, or internally, as an OEM module, to a PC to provide real-time iris identification for applications such as desktop sign-in without passwords, single sign-on, online payments, email/file/folder encryption and decryption. These functions can be done automatically as a background Windows service when the pre-registered user is present in front of the PC.

IriVault is powered by IriTech’s iris recognition algorithm, which is resilient to various ambient lighting conditions and eye glasses. IriVault supports side-gazing of up to 25 degrees left/right and up/down at a stand-off distance between 12 and 16 inches, the natural distance range for most users working with PC.

The company says it has been discussing integrating IriVault into laptops with several PC manufacturers. IriTech will showcase IriVault at MWC Americas 2017 next month in San Fransisco.

Earlier this month, Frost & Sullivan recognized IriTech with the 2017 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for “New Product Innovation”, based on its recent analysis of the new trends in the iris biometrics industry.
