Iris ID, a leading provider of iris recognition technology, today announced the integration of its handheld iCAM M300 multimode platform for biometric enrollment and verification with the FBI-certified Sherlock fingerprint scanner from Spartanburg, S.C.-based Integrated Biometrics (“IB”).
The fingerprint reader snaps on to the iCAM M300 to create one lightweight portable unit for field use. Sherlock is certified by the FBI as a FAP 45 fingerprint scanner having met the bureau’s stringent image quality conditions in virtually any environment, including indirect or direct sunlight, dusty conditions and with dry or dirty fingers. The unit can simultaneously scan up to two fingerprints and run for hours connected to the iCAM M300.
Iris ID’s Android-based iCAM M300 is designed for field use in law enforcement, access control, national ID programs, border control and time and attendance situations. The unit’s embedded cameras capture both iris and facial modes. Also included are magstripe and contactless card support, as well as an MRZ reader to verify ePassports. Communications protocols include NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 4G LTE and more.
“IB is extremely pleased for the Sherlock to be chosen for integration into such a cutting-edge mobile multi-modal identification device,” said David Gerulski, executive vice president of Integrated Biometrics. “Our lightweight, low-power devices, based on IB’s patented Light Emitting Sensor film, are enabling a completely new approach to identification for police, border authorities and more.”
Mohammed Murad, vice president global sales and business development, Iris ID, said the combination of the iCAM M300 and Sherlock provides an ideal portable identity enrollment and verification solution for both public and commercial organizations.
“Equipped with Sherlock, the iCAM M300 offers access to the three leading modes of biometric authentication – iris, fingerprint and facial – in a lightweight unit that performs virtually anywhere,” he said. “Sherlock integration is a tremendous enhancement to the growing Iris ID line of biometric authentication solutions.”
The Security Industry Association named the iCAM M300 the 2018 New Product Showcase award winner for best mobile app.
