BI2 Technologies announces release of industry-changing suite of iris biometric identification software and tools
PLYMOUTH, Mass --(Business Wire)--
Biometric Intelligence & Identification Technologies (BI2�Technologies),
a leading provider of biometric identification technologies, announced
the release of a new suite of open, standards-based iris biometric
identification software and tools named Fident™ and FidentSDK™.
FidentSDK™ gives specialized third party software providers, like EHR,
developers, System Integrators and VARs the ability to easily add and
integrate iris biometric identification capabilities to their offerings.
FidentSDK™ contains complete client and server components.
Fident™ is a camera and algorithm agnostic Cloud-based iris biometric
Kamen Kostov, Chief Engineer for BI2 Technologies said, "All biometric
identification systems have two major components - hardware to capture
the biometric and software algorithm to perform the identification.
Fident™ has been designed from the ground up to be independent of
the proprietary nature of both."
Fident™ allows developers and end-users to use any iris camera
that mees industry standards (iris interchange standard ISO/IEC (News - Alert)
19794-6, ISO/IEC 29794-6 and ISO/IEC 19795-4) for iris capture using any
algorithm that meets industry standards for backend identification.
Fident™ performs all of the iris capture and identification functions
enabling third party software vendor to focus their development efforts
on the business features that are important to their customers. The
communication between any third party product and Fident™ is facilitated
by the Microsoft (News - Alert) WCF (Windows Communication Foundation). This widely
accepted and enterprise friendly approach is an ideal method to build
service-oriented applications communicating over various protocols.
Fident™ can be integrated with virtually any desktop or web application
written in .NET (News - Alert), Java or Python."
Sean G. Mullin, president & CEO of BI2 said, "Fident™ will change the
iris biometric industry. It has been designed to easily integrate with
any existing application or database - from small, standalone systems at
one site or campus to large scale national or global implementations for
Electronic Health Records, National ID, Fraud Prevention, Banking and
Financial Services, Retail and Gaming, Cyber Security and Intelligence,
Social Media, Immigration, Border Control and ePassports. It's open and
standards-based so customers will have more choices and will not be
locked into one vendor. That means more competition and more freedom to
select the best solutions at lower costs - that's innovation."
