"Suprema launches FaceStation 2, the world's best performing face recognition terminal"

Suprema, a global leader in biometrics and security, announced the launch of the company’s latest flagship terminal, FaceStation 2, the world’s fastest and most advanced face recognition technology.

 

Designed for use in access control and time & attendance applications, the new FaceStation 2 is loaded with Suprema’s latest face recognition technology providing the world’s best performance in terms of matching speed, user capacity and operating illuminance. On the biometric side, the new technology performs fast face matching of 3,000 matches per second, making FaceStation 2 the world’s fastest facial recognition terminal to the date.

 

As a result of enhancements to the algorithm, a new optical structure and a class leading 1.4GHz quad-core CPU, Suprema’s new face recognition technology now boasts improved matching speeds 300% faster than its predecessor, the FaceStation.  On the optical side, the new face recognition technology overcomes possible interference from dynamic lighting conditions including sunlight and ambient light. The new technology allows for a greater range of operating illuminance from zero lux to 25,000 lux which covers almost every possible lighting condition regardless of indoor or outdoor, day or night.

 

On its wide touchscreen LCD, FaceStation 2 offers the industry’s most intuitive graphic user interface. Thanks to the latest Android 5.0 OS, FaceStation 2 features the latest material design concept, thus providing an extremely easy to use GUI requiring near-zero training for both users and system administrators.

 

For RF card support, FaceStation 2 incorporates dual-frequency, multi-card reading technology. The device features both LF (125kHz) and HF (13.56MHz) RFID and reads most types of RFID card standards with a single device including MIFARE, HID iCLASS, DESFire, FeliCa, HID Prox, EM and NFC. For the first time in face terminals, FaceStation 2 also supports authentication by BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) which makes it a future-proof investment for today’s evolving credential technology.

 

“FaceStation 2 clearly reflects Suprema’s commitment to technology leadership and market focus. From the designing stage of FaceStation 2, we aimed to bring the best-of-breed face terminal regardless of environment, RFID standards and size of the projects it covers,” said Hanchul Kim, Director at Suprema. “Suprema’s 2nd generation face recognition technology far outpaces all current competitors in terms of matching speed and accuracy and, moreover, our technology offers greater practicality and robustness by offering increased operating illuminance, height range and user capacity,” Kim added.
