CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AOptix Technologies, Inc. announced the commercial product release of InSight™ VM, the second in a series of products from the iris recognition system innovator. The InSight VM reflects a vertical orientation of all components so that the new form factor is slender with a compact footprint. It also features an elegant and contemporary industrial design that is appropriate for installation in public spaces such as modern airports and office buildings.

The InSight VM operates at a nominal 2 meter stand-off distance and employs the company’s proprietary Adaptive Optics technology to fully automate the iris capture process at a typical 2 seconds per eye.

The system’s imaging functionality is identical to the company’s original InSight SD system, capturing pristine iris images at a distance of 2 meters. Its industry leading .75 cubic meter capture volume allows virtually everyone from ADA-specified wheelchair height to over 7 feet (2.15 meters) tall to position them with minimal effort.

In interacting with the InSight system, the subject merely needs to stand in its very large capture volume, look at the device, and open his or her eyes. The system does all the work of finding the subject and locating the eyes for iris imaging, automating the entire process.

“Our InSight VM introduces a new aesthetic to iris recognition,” said Phil Tusa, VP of Biometrics Programs for AOptix. “This system puts the superior usability of InSight technology into a form factor that opens up exciting new deployment possibilities.”

Under 9 inches (23 cm) wide, it is suitable for integration into immigration control counters and eGates, as well as access control environments. Physical integration is simple, since the InSight VM is fully self-contained and can be easily floor mounted or integrated into flow control devices.
