Suprema launches Face Station 2

Seoul, Korea

Suprema, a global leader in biometrics and security recently launched Face Station 2 at ISC West in early-April in Las Vegas, USA. In its product marketing the company points out that, "The Face Station 2 features the world’s fastest and most advanced face recognition technology and performance."

The new Face Station 2 is loaded with Suprema’s latest face recognition technology, claiming to provide 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, which makes Face Station 2 the world’s fastest facial recognition terminal to the date. Suprema’s new face recognition technology has been improved by enhanced algorithms, new optical structure and a 1.4GHz quad-core CPU. As a result, matching speed has been improved by 300% compared to the original Face Station, its predecessor. On the optical side, the new face recognition technology now overcomes possible interference from dynamic lighting conditions including sunlight and ambient light. The new technology now 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, Face Station 2 offers one of the industry’s most intuitive graphic user interfaces. Thanks to the latest Android 5.0 OS, Face Station 2 features the latest materials design concept to provide an extremely easy to use GUI requiring near-zero training for both users and system administrators.

For RF card support, Face Station 2 features 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, Face Station 2 also supports authentication by BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) which makes it a future-proof investment for today’s evolving credential technology.

“Face Station 2 clearly reflects Suprema’s commitment to technology leadership and market focus. From the design stage of Face Station 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.

Along with new face recognition technology, Suprema will showcase the company’s extensive range of latest biometric solutions and access control systems at their next exhibition, Ifsec International on 20 - 22 June 2017 in London, UK.
