Points of Excellence: Why Choose HID Facial Recognition

Head and Shoulders Above the Competition

HID’s industry-leading face recognition technology offers the necessary components to build and deploy mission-critical biometric verification and identification solutions.

Secure, dependable and flexible — discover why HID facial recognition is right for you.

Top Ranking in Global Benchmarks

To create the best, we partnered with the best: Paravision®.

Paravision’s face-matching algorithms consistently rank at the top of NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) benchmarks, including 1:1 verification, 1:N identification and Paperless TravelThe technology also achieved 100% True Identification Rate across all demographics in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Biometric Technology Rally.

These industry benchmarks provide independent evaluations of facial recognition system performance, enabling organizations to make informed decisions when selecting a face recognition system.

Ethically Trained and Built AI to Eliminate Matching Bias

Partnering with Paravision, we make sure that our face-matching algorithm is trained using an extensive, ethically sourced dataset with millions of images, including a variety of gender, age and racial characteristics, to ensure sufficient diversity of data to defend against matching bias.

Unmatched Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) Protecting Against Spoofs

HID’s patented multispectral imaging (MSI) technology combined with our advanced PAD algorithm meets the ISO/IEC 30107-1 standard. Passive liveness detection prevents spoof attacks using items like 3D masks, printed pictures or digital images.

Exceptional Performance in Any Lighting

Fusing HID-patented multispectral imaging with AI and machine learning innovations, the HID U.ARE.U™ Camera Identification System delivers fast, accurate, on-device biometric processing regardless of lighting conditions, such as total darkness, direct sunlight, backlit settings or gradient conditions.

The U.ARE.U camera uses 2D/3D technology, spanning the visible and near-infrared spectrum along with active structured light illumination to provide strong user authentication and presentation attack detection.

Extensive Document Verification for ID Proofing

In today’s business climate, properly identifying customers is more important than ever and is key to staying competitive.

HID’s leading identity verification technology ensures that the person in the selfie and ID document is who they say they are, empowering trusted digital identities for eKYC and customer onboarding.

We offer powerful, yet flexible, identity verification capabilities for almost any identity document on the globe, and can be easily customized per the requirements of our partners.

All HID biometric solutions are designed using the Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDL) methodology to ensure secure integration into your infrastructure. The SSDL process also gives developers insight into potential security gaps and threats before they occur.

In addition, our facial recognition technology is developed using Privacy by Design — ethical data collection with user opt-in/opt-out and end-user license agreement (EULA) guidance that’s fully compliant with today’s privacy regulations such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Modular Approach for Easy, Fast & Flexible Deployment

HID’s modular approach enables our partners to add facial recognition capabilities quickly and easily to existing systems without “rip-and-replace” or expensive migrations to a new platform altogether.  

Whether you are implementing a complete facial recognition solution or just installing cameras at customer touchpoints, HID’s modular portfolio can flex with your business needs, resources, budget and time frame requirements.​
