NEWS RELEASE – NEW YORK, NY – March 17, 2022
EyeLock LLC, a leader of iris identity authentication solutions and subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today it has entered the facial biometric market with its newly released NanoFace™ facial recognition solution.
For the past decade, EyeLock has been focused on iris recognition, building a strong portfolio of intellectual property with over 100 patents or patents pending. While iris authentication remains the Company’s forte, it will also offer other biometric applications as enterprises and consumers continue to gravitate towards multi-modal applications. With NanoFace, this demand can now be met.
NanoFace from EyeLock delivers ultra-high accuracy, authentication speeds under one second, and operating distance up to six feet — capabilities not currently seen in other market offerings. NanoFace is one of the most advanced and affordable facial biometric solutions available today and has been at the top of those tested by the National Institute of Security and Technology (“NIST®”).
Commenting on today’s announcement, EyeLock’s President Allen Ibaugh stated, “While the EyeLock brand has become synonymous with iris recognition, we continually listen to the industry and evolve. Thus, the expansion into facial authentication is a natural fit. We want to offer customers choice and deliver an easy, affordable and technologically advanced solution that meets their needs. With NanoFace and other EyeLock solutions, coupled with our expanding global distribution channels, we believe we are in an excellent position for growth, especially as multi-modality biometric solutions grow in popularity.”
In a survey of EyeLock’s clients regarding what they want in a facial biometric solution, the majority of respondents stated that speed, accuracy and affordability were the top three driving factors. These key factors were followed by ease-of-use and a smaller footprint. The NanoFace met expectations across all the categories, with its compact size of only 8”x4”x1.5”.
Among EyeLock’s strengths is its vast OEM partnerships in the access control industry. As such, NanoFace is now fully integrated into Lenel, Software House, AMAG, Kantech, Honeywell, Genetec, RS2, Open Options, Avigilon, Pacom, and Sicunet access control system solutions. Customers of these major brands can now benefit from the integrated offering leveraging EyeLock’s iris and facial biometric capabilities.
