Integrating two biometrics with only one embedded optical filter solution from PSC

IDEMIA is the global leader in Augmented Identity, offering a variety of identity and security solutions to customers such as government agencies, financial institutions and mobile operators all over the world.

In biometrics, it is fundamental that the imaging equipment produce high quality images, including the best signal to noise ratio, in order to deliver optimal recognition performance. The software inside is obviously a key element in obtaining fast and accurate recognition, however an optimized optical filter solution in front of the camera is a crucial element to ensuring full potential of the system.

Solution

To ensure maximum performance, IDEMIA utilizes an optical filter solution from PSC A/S. A solution combining an optical filter with various properties. The main filter is optimized for the near infrared range which means that it efficiently blocks all visible light, allowing only near infrared light to be transmitted. The LED illumination is hidden behind this infrared filter, and through the properties of the infrared filter, illumination is enhanced. This in return improves the camera function.

The other filter part covering the camera, which is sensitive to both visible and near infrared light, is made from a high transmission, scratch-resistant material optimized for both the visible area and the NIR range, providing the best possible working conditions for the camera sensors. In this filter solution, surface treatment consisting of a clear hard coat has been applied, ensuring lifetime durability even when exposed to rough environments.

Customer benefits

By integrating an optimized optical filter solution from PSC A/S, IDEMIA has perfected the camera function of the brand new OneLook biometric solution.

The fastest multi-biometric solution of its kind, OneLook by IDEMIA is a highly innovative device, offering simultaneous face & iris capture and identification at-a-distance.
