Suprema Inc. has unleashed what it flaunts as the world's fastest IP-based biometric face recognition access control terminal with patented adaptive IR illumination technology. FaceStation features a facial recognition technology that identifies individuals from their facial image features.

According to the company, FaceStation's advanced algorithm and patented adaptive IR technology eliminates problems caused by shifting lighting intensity and pose variation. The technology enables face image extraction process robust to various lighting conditions while achieving matching speed of 1:1,000.

Furthermore, it provides contactless, hands-free biometric authentication that allows more convenient and hygiene method than other access control technology, noted the company.

The terminal boasts ideally angled front face to maximize its coverage on users' height, and offers wide touch screen LCD to deliver clear images and messages with a wide viewing angle to users, described Suprema. The device also provides auto detection mode with proximity sensor and customizable hot keys for various time attendance functions.

FaceStation has a wide 4.3in WVGA touch screen LCD, dual-CPU processing (1.7GHz in total), videophone interface and embedded web server. By offering TCP/IP, PoE and WiFi features, FaceStation completes true IP access control concept that brings lower per-door costs with extra stability and scalability, Suprema added.

It offers comprehensive communication interfaces and relays. It allows flexible system design with TCP/IP, 2-channel RS485, RS232, USB and Wiegand interfaces. It also has multiple in/out ports, and for further expansion, optional external relay unit is available.
