Iris Recognition is sometimes confused with Retinal Scanning which causes undo concern about eye safety issues. How can the differences between Iris Recognition and Retinal Scanning be explained to new users?
Iris Recognition is sometimes confused with Retinal Scanning which is the biometric often shown in the movies where a bright light is shined into the eye in order to read the pattern of the retina, the back wall of the eye.
Iris Recognition uses a camera similar to a home camcorder which simply takes a picture of the Iris, the colored part of the eye from a comfortable distance of 3 to 10 inches away.
These differences can best be explained using the attached slides during the enrollment process to educate new users on the safety testing that has been completed on the IrisAccess™ 3000 and the differences between these two completely different biometrics.
