What is 3D Facial Recognition?

3D Face recognition uses a unique dense stereo 3D imaging technology. By comparing images taken from two nearly identical points of view, the software finds every tiny visual feature on a face (such as individual hair follicles), and triangulates from the camera positions to extract the precise distance of each feature from the imaging system. This produces accurate 3D facial imagery unmatched by any other 3D forensic imaging system.


Features of 3D
  • Biometrically accurate (eye finder and nose finder standard).
  • Push-button simple requiring minimal operator training.
  • Fully automatic (even hole-filling, multi-view stitching and smoothing).
  • Race and gender neutral.
  • Facial hair and cosmetics neutral.
  • Capable of extracting the outer envelope of the subject's hair.
  • Fast to capture (<1 second) and fast to process (<1 minute).
  • Non-laser, non-contact.
  • Untethered and field portable (select models).


3D Applications
  • 2D/3D facial recognition systems.
  • 3D mug shot acquisition (works as a standard 2D system too).
  • 3D "Identikit"-like face compositing systems Fraud resistant identification (passports, visas, national IDs, drivers licenses, corporate IDs, "smart-card" IDs).
  • 3D holographic and ID card laminating films Passive (non-contact, non-laser, non-flash) identification.
  • Reduction of document fraud.
  • 3D forensic imaging.
  • Point-of-entry and facilities access control.
  • Passenger screening systems.
