Sarnoff Corporation's Iris-On-The-Move(TM) Joins Honeywell in Airport of the Future Exhibit; Iris-On-The-Move(TM) Provides Accurate, Non-invasive Biometric ID with Moving Subjects.PRINCETON, N.J. -- Sarnoff Corporation Sarnoff Corporation, with headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey, is the former RCA Laboratories. The headquarters is the site of the development of color television, CMOS technology, electron microscopy, and many other important technologies since the cornerstone was laid just joined Honeywell International Inc., today at the American Association American Association refers to one of the following professional baseball leagues:

IOM is the world's only standoff biometric identity verification Noun 1. identity verification - the automatic identification of living individuals by using their physiological and behavioral characteristics; "negative identification can only be accomplished through biometric identification"; "if a pin or password is lost or system that provides powerful, accurate and reliable iris recognition of a person in motion.
"The Iris on the Move system is a breakthrough in this field," said Sarnoff's Vince Endres, vice president, portfolio and corporate development. "The process is non-invasive and hygienic hy·gien·ic

Until now, iris recognition technology has been hampered by the cumbersome necessity to position a subject in front of the iris scanner and line up the eye properly for identification. IOM overcomes static subject positioning and motion constraints during collection by scanning the subject's iris while they are in motion. IOM accurately verifies identities at rates of 20 people per minute, an equivalent to the standard walking pace --far faster than any other biometric device. IOM works even if the subject is wearing glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses.
Key features of IOM include:
--Ease of Use - The system requires no training and can collect iris scans up to three meters from the imaging system.
--Speed and Volume of Throughput - Allows more than 20 subjects per minute to walk through the recognition portal at a normal walking pace.
--Flexibility of Design - The default configuration accommodates individuals from 5'3" to 6'3", yet independent modules can be integrated for easy expansion to customize the system based on specific needs including accessibility requirements.
--Platform "Agnostic" - The IOM platform was designed to hand off collected imagery with any iris recognition algorithm, providing seamless integration to meet a wide variety of security and environmental needs.
Because subjects do not have to stop, remove glasses and gloves, or free their hands in order to verify their identity, IOM is extremely effective for perimeter and access control, and is currently in use in several government facilities and private corporations.
Iris recognition has significant advantages over other biometric and biographic identification methods. It has an extremely low false match rate because the pattern of the iris is unique to its owner and remarkably stable over an individual's lifetime.
