Blog > Hummingbird Iris Scanner Prototype

We have a new Iris only scanner in the final stages of development. We hope to have it in full production in late Q3, 2015. This unit will be machined out of a solid block of aluminum with anodized matte finish, polished edges and offers excellent durability, ease of use and cost effectiveness. This unit is ideal for integrating iris recognition capabilities to existing applications such as detainee/prison management, border crossings, healthcare and other biometric programs requiring collection and verification of iris data.

Some key feature include:
  • Synchronous dual iris capture using a single CMOS sensor, both eyes are captured simultaneously
  • Meets and exceeds ISO/IEC 19794-6 iris image standards
  • Iris resolution of around 20 pixels/mm, with average iris diameter > 220 pixels
  • Inter Pupillary Distance (IPD) support for 40mm – 90mm
  • > 4 line-pairs/mm optical resolution
  • NIR, 790 - 850 NM LED near infra-red illumination
  • Algorithm agnostic, acquired Iris images can be used with any iris recognition algorithm
  • Optimized for use with Unique Biometrics Iris Recognition SDK
  • USB 3.0/2.0 host connectivity, USB powered
  • Fast capture speed - average 2sec for dual iris capture
