VisionAccess 3D DeskCam pioneers the use of 3D face recognition to
authenticate users accessing computers
TORONTO, March 28 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider
of enterprise access control technology, today announced the introduction of
the world's first 3D face recognition camera for use in authenticating
individuals accessing a computer. Bioscrypt's VisionAccess 3D DeskCam performs
both verification and identification operations. It also accommodates varying
poses of the head, as well as a wide range of lighting conditions, to provide
a convenient, non-contact method of authentication with a high level of
Building on a history of 3D vision physical access control deployments,
the new Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D DeskCam meets the market demand for a hands
free and secure authentication solution that does not require users to
remember passwords, tokens or cards to log on to their computer. Integrated
with Bioscrypt VeriSoft SSO, authentication with the camera can automatically
initiate network logon and/or single sign-on to pre-registered web-based or
Microsoft Windows applications.
Further to Bioscrypt's product strategy, a single enrolment will create a
template that can be used for authentication at both the physical access
reader and the logical access reader, providing a true Door to Desktop
biometric authentication solution.
"With the introduction of the VisionAccess DeskCam we are continuing to
build out our multi-factor authentication solution set that facilitates the
convergence of IT infrastructure and physical security systems," said Robert
L. Williams, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. "We are providing the platform to
assist companies to unify identities across the organization by supporting a
multitude of authentication methods used for access control. This support now
extends to 3D face for IT security."
Created from the technology which made Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D facial
recognition products renowned in physical access deployments, the 3D DeskCam
comes in a 3 inch tall, half inch wide desktop form factor. The camera
connects via a single USB interface to a PC or laptop, and provides sub-second
authentication using advanced 3D facial surface recognition. The 3D DeskCam
provides an intuitive, contactless recognition system using 40,000 points in a
3D mesh, and will be shipping to customers, integrators and partners in the
second half of 2007.
