Canada’s Bioscrypt, a provider of enterprise access control technology, has introduced what it claims is the world’s first 3D face recognition camera for use in authenticating individuals accessing a computer.



Bioscrypt says its VisionAccess 3D DeskCam performs verification and identification operations. It also accommodates varying poses of the head, as well as a range of lighting conditions, to provide a non-contact method of authentication with a high level of accuracy.



The new Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D DeskCam is said to meet the market demand for a hands free and secure authentication solution that does not require users to remember passwords, tokens or cards to log on to their computer.



Integrated with Bioscrypt VeriSoft Single Sign On, authentication with the camera can automatically initiate network logon and/or single sign-on to pre-registered web-based or Microsoft Windows applications.



A single enrolment will create a template that can be used for authentication at the physical access reader and the logical access reader, providing a true ‘Door to Desktop’ biometric authentication solution.
