Bioscrypt and 3VR Partner to Deliver Industry Leading 3D Facial Recognition for Security Applications

Product integration will create an enterprise solution incorporating 3D facial recognition for physical access control and identity verification linked to an active analytics engine

Mar 22, 2007 - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of enterprise access control technology, today announced the Company has partnered with 3VR to integrate its VisionAccess 3D Face Readers and the VissionAccess 3D DeskCam with the 3VR platform to deliver facial recognition for state-of-the-art physical access and identity verification linked to an active analytics engine.

3VR has developed a platform capable of searching various data sources and services to stop losses, speed investigations, and improve productivity. The addition of Bioscrypt’s VissionAccess 3D face recognition solutions, and the associated identity details, to this platform, offers organizations a greater ability to identify people.

This identification occurs essentially in real time either at the facility entrance using the VisionAccess 3D Face Reader, or, at a closer proximity, the VisionAccess 3D DeskCam. If the person identified was previously placed on a watch list, a security alert will occur and the individual can be monitored, to provide an overall enterprise authentication solution.

“As the leading searchable surveillance platform on the market, 3VR is committed to supporting the widest range of biometric and analytic technologies for our customers,” says Steve Russell, 3VR CEO. “Though our partnership with Bioscrypt we can now offer security professionals more choice and access to the industry’s most advanced 3D facial recognition technology.”

“Integrating our 3D face solutions with the 3VR searchable platform creates a fraud prevention system that is unique in the world,” said Robert L. Williams, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. “We are confident the partnership with 3VR will deliver significant value to our respective customers as well as to our own organizations.”

Bioscrypt’s advanced 3D facial recognition system uses structured lighting to create a facial grid of 40,000 measurable data points. The system performs multiple facial scans and comparisons against a database of stored images and corresponding data, and conducts accurate identification at sub-second speeds, from which authorized persons are confirmed for access.
