Seoul, Korea and San Jose, CA, USA. (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
CMITech Company, Ltd., a leading developer of iris recognition systems, announced today that it has been awarded certification for its BMT-20 iris recognition camera by the Standardization, Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) Directorate of India. STQC regulates all biometrics devices to be utilized in India’s ground breaking Unique ID (UID) program. The UID program has already enrolled about 200 million Indian residents, and has set a goal of enrolling an additional 400 million residents by mid-2014. UID represents the largest and most significant program of its kind in the world.
The Company received certification following a rigorous evaluation and testing program that ensures that devices meet a full range of specifications and requirements, which cover image quality, interoperability, form factor, environmental, electro-magnetic interference, manufacturing quality, and subject usability.
“CMITech is truly gratified to receive certification from STQC,” said Dr. JJ Chae, founder and CEO of CMITech. “The UID program is the most notable civil identity project in the world. Its mission of providing digital identities to all Indian residents promises to advance economic development throughout the country. We are very pleased to become a part of this effort.”
UID is unprecedented in its scope and vision. Many Indian residents, especially the very poor, have never received a traditional ID credential such as a birth certificate, driver’s license or the India PAN card for taxes and financial transactions. The UID program will pull many Indian residents into India’s modernizing economy, and potential fraud and abuse will be greatly reduced.
CMITech will be supplying the BMT-20 system via its master distributor, Delta ID Pvt. Ltd., located in Delhi. Salil Prabhakar is CEO of Delta ID and a globally recognized biometrics expert.
“CMITech’s BMT-20 iris camera system represents the most advanced iris recognition technology for UID enrollment. It offers superior ease-of-use, fast capture speed, and high quality imaging, while still being cost competitive,” said Prabhakar. “We are delighted to offer this outstanding technology to enrollment agencies throughout India for the next round of UID enrollments.”
