FotoNation’s Iris Recognition biometric algorithms are used worldwide in defence, law enforcement and border control with new versions optimized for mobile device platforms.

Seamless and accurate iris detection and capture using advanced
de-noising and image stability techniques ensure maximum image information. Small template size allows fast, logic-based matching while rapid iris and pupil segmentation are handled by our patented methods. Proprietary liveness and spoof detection functions allied to advanced biometric data protection techniques ensure your personal ID security.

Accurate Iris Recognition biometrics require excellent optical
performance. This is why our solution adopts advanced and
proprietary lens designs, optimal focus for different illumination
wavelengths, rapid auto-focus control and dynamic exposure control.

The MIRLIN SDK is  FotoNation’s starting point for customers developing iris recognition solutions. This fully featured toolkit enables us to support our partners to build iris recognition engines, enrollment and ID management applications that use iris image or template databases.

IMAGE QUALITY ASSESSMENT

Conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 19794-6:2011. Includes functions for fast focus assessment, iris and pupil sizes and ratios, eye occlusion (visible iris area), dynamic range and other parameters that enable quick acceptance or rejection of raw images.

IRIS / PUPIL FINDER

Rapidly locates iris and pupil.
Optional FacePower™ for face/eye tracking.
Ideal for camera developers.

TEMPLATE ENCODING

MIRLIN’s high efficiency template encoding is based on a proprietary, patented technique. Enrollment templates are ~600 bytes in size. At identification time, a series of up to 25 rotations can be generated to compensate for live test (probe) images that are rotated / offset compared with the original enrollment image.

PLATFORM  SUPPORT

Windows, Linux, Embedded Linux, ARM, Android, iOS

IMAGE TYPE CONVERSION

MIRLIN supports Type 3 / Type 7 compact inter-operable iris image formats defined in ISO/IEC 19794-6:2011 standard. These formats enable exchange of iris image data without compromising the ability of other algorithms to work cross-platform.

LIVENESS DETECTION

MIRLIN includes functions that enable camera and systems developers to include liveness and spoof detection functions by analyzing real-time changes.

TEMPLATE MATCHING

MIRLIN’s uses a technique for scoring the match based on a weighted combination of the Hamming Distance of sub-features within the encoded iris template.  This is what enables MIRLIN’s industry leading matching speed – especially important in high volume 1:N search and enrollment de-duplication systems.

REGION OF INTEREST

All features may be computed within a region of interest.

INTEGRATION

NIR LED illumination requirement ranges from 750 to 950 nm. Our engineering team can help you determine what is the best setup for you.

FotoNation proprietary user interface and user experience enhancements can be applied to all setups.

FotoNation has significant know-how in LED illumination control, shutter and exposure control, image read-out and synchronization.
Eye safety important (ISO 62471); most LEDs are eye-safe, but end-products MUST be tested and certified. The illumination solution will provide close LED control so average power demand will be low.

FotoNation Iris Recognition technology can be used in mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and automotive ADAS or home automation industries.
