IDEMIA’s Japan office has partnered with SHODEN, a Japanese manufacturer of enterprise-grade systems and equipment, and Genetec Inc., a unified security solutions provider, to deploy 3D facial recognition access control in Japan. This partnership will integrate IDEMIA’s VisionPass device and the patented Genetec Security Center into SHODEN’s security infrastructure offering, which will be installed as part of the access control system for a large Japanese utilities company.
With the integrated solution, VisionPass will be installed at building entrances for contactless access control, while the Genetec Security Center enables centralized management via a single, unified interface. This security solution will also be showcased at SHODEN’s Solution Lab in Tokyo, where customers can test and experience the devices first-hand.
Launched in early 2020, VisionPass features an advanced optical set that combines 2D, 3D and infrared cameras with a stereoscopic image processing algorithm to enable high-speed face matching. According to 2020 DHS Biometric Technology Rally, IDEMIA’s facial recognition algorithms achieved the best accuracy (True Identification Rate), with and without a mask and displayed over 95% accuracy rate in identifying mask wearers – the highest in the market, which helps enterprises comply with sanitation standards while keeping workplaces secure. VisionPass can also be deployed in various locations and remains effective in all light conditions. IDEMIA says it is also highly resistant to spoofing attempts with its 100% success at the iBeta PAD anti-spoofing evaluation, the best market result for a facial recognition terminal.
More Japanese companies are integrating touchless technology in their access control systems, and facial recognition devices in particular are increasingly being deployed in airports, stadiums and other public facilities.
