Tascent enables biometric authentication for kiosks
Tascent, a biometrics provider, has expanded its face and iris recognition system to enable biometric authentication in self-service devices, according to a press release.
Tascent InSight One is now available as an embeddable OEM module for kiosk integration, and as a small-footprint ID station for self-service biometric enrollment and authentication.
These two new form factors will enable partners to integrate multimodal biometric capabilities to enhance the security, convenience and efficiency of self-service touchpoints, the release said.
The InSight One OEM Module enables simple integration with touchscreen kiosks; the ID Station allows the integration of a fingerprint, minimum resolvable temperature difference, or barcode scanner for self-service identity enrollment and matching.
Potential use cases include visitor management, Know Your Customer applications, payment authorization in vending machines, personal identification at ATMs, hospitality check-in stations and passenger facilitation for air travel.
Tascent has also announced its first solution in collaboration with passenger self-service technology provider Embross. The partnership will see Tascent's technology on some of the world's most popular airline and airport self-service solutions driving the next generation of seamless passenger travel and border security, the release said.
