NOVEMBER 7--LG Electronics (www.lgusa.com), a Korean producer of digital products, has introduced a new biometric security system. Iris Access 3000, which captures and processes eye recognition in less than one second, uses illuminated infrared light, which is safe for the eye and meets safety standards for US and European markets. The identification process operates perfectly with eyeglasses and contact lenses from a distance of 3 to 10 inches.
Vertical industries including banking, health care, and government agencies are increasingly turning to iris scanners, voice-recognition software, and fingerprint scanners as simple, cost-effective means of securing networks and improving accountability for information and facility access.
Iris Access 3000 will be available globally through distributors.
