Iris recognition is an automated method of biometric identification that uses mathematical pattern-recognition techniques on video images of one or both of the irises of an individual's eyes, whose complex random patterns are unique, stable, and can be seen from some distance.

Retinal scanning is a different, ocular-based biometric technology that uses the unique patterns on a person's retina blood vessels and is often confused with iris recognition. Iris recognition uses video camera technology with subtle near infrared illumination to acquire images of the detail-rich, intricate structures of the iris which are visible externally.

New generation Iris recognition terminal

The EF-45 is dual iris imaging system that is highly innovative and intuitive user positioning approach. Subjects view their own faces in a front-facing, high resolution 5.0 inch color display to position themselves correctly within the real-time graphic interface. In addition, a green border is displayed above the subject’s face to indicate proper distance positioning, after which the iris images are automatically collected. Now, capturing highest quality iris images is fast, simple including non-acclimated ones. The system also captures high quality face images simultaneously with iris image capture.

The EF-45 is an embedded system that includes its own ARM Mainboard to manage all face and iris imaging processes. The normal external communication to host systems and clients is through TCP/IP via an Ethernet connection. The embedded architecture also allows for on-board iris and face template generation and matching against a local data base.
