FAIRFAX, Va., February 22, 2017 – IriTech, Inc., a leading iris-based identity management technology solutions company enters a co-promotion agreement with Egis Technology Inc., a leading global provider of fingerprint sensors.
While IriTech is well known for its iris cameras and software utilized by global governments, such as the Indian government’s UIDAI project, and United Nations (Refugee Program and World Food Program), recently, InFocus, a Foxconn brand, has launched a smartphone with IriTech’s algorithm solution in India for the Aadhaar project after getting STQC certification with zero FRR.
The co-promotion with Egistec, who is already providing fingerprint solutions to top-tier smartphone manufacturers, is expected to create more opportunities for IriTech and Egistec in consumer technology while focusing on the mobile industry.
“Recently, IriTech is focusing on promoting its technology to mobile devices and VR/AR companies amid the importance of privacy and security. The VR and AR industry will become a huge market for IriTech and we already have our solution evaluated by big players. We plan to target more mobile, VR and AR manufacturers with Egis Tech's sales force”, says Daniel Kim, CEO of IriTech.
IriTech’s prowess in iris recognition includes innovative approaches towards upcoming industries such as AR, VR and automotive. It’s investment in research and development to solve impediments of iris recognition led to solutions for ‘side-gazing capturing’ and ‘capturing under sunlight’ in addition to the proven top performance of FAR/FRR; both are considered breakthrough technologies for the industry as the problems were a hurdle for widespread adoption of iris recognition.
IriTech plans to promote iris recognition-based authentication solutions to automotive manufacturers and vendors a long-range iris camera with ‘side-gazing’ and ‘capturing under bright sunlight’ capabilities.
Since establishment in 2000, IriTech’s long effort to develop the most advanced iris recognition technology and products. IriTech’s algorithm was top ranked by the US government’s NIST IREX test and achieved STQC certification on iris cameras for enrollment, authentication, and mobile devices; the only iris vendor to achieve all three certifications for the Indian government’s UIDAI project—an ambitious plan to issue biometric ID cards to all 1.2 billion residents.
