August 3, 2010 Cranbury, NJ USA, – Iris ID Systems Inc. formerly LG Electronics, Iris Technology Division., a leading provider of iris biometric technology, announced today that the company released a new AADHAAR Biometric Capture Device Software for Iris ID’s IrisAccess® iCAM TD100 system for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) project.

IrisAccess iCAMTD100 is a portable multi modal face/iris image capturing, USB enabled device hence is suitable for bundling with mobile jump-kit used at the registration offices and sites. With its proven reliability, accuracy and high-speed image capturing, the device is a very good fit for the UIDAI project. Fully automatic dual iris image capture and quality analysis routines are available as a part of the SDK API set for the field application of the iCAMTD100 from the Iris ID website. Iris and face capture are performed by the operator extending their arm from the face capture distance to the iris capture distance from 30 inches to 15 inches. Iris and face capture API function is included in the SDK. The integrated display’s framing function provides feedback for the capture of properly formatted ISO/ICAO face and iris images.

“We are proud to be part of the AADHAAR UIDAI program and will be dedicated to the program. UIDAI, created by a mandate to provide biometric enabled unique identity to all Indian residents. Since this will involve capturing iris, face and fingerprint of about 1.2 billion people, UIDAI released an Automated Biometric Identification Subsystem (ABIS) Interface and required all the participating ABIS Providers to implement an interface conforming to this specification. Iris ID software standardizes the biometric capture process as per the AADHAAR ABIS Interface enabling the use of iCAM TD100 iris/face camera as an UIDAI AADHAAR Biometric Capture Device.”, commented Charles Koo, President and CEO, Iris ID Systems Inc.

Iris ID AADHAAR Biometric Capture Device Software will enable systems integrators to capture ICAO/ISO compliant iris and face images. Once a person’s iris images are acquired the templates can be generated to enroll the subject for future identity authentication solutions.
