Frost & Sullivan Honours Vision-Box With The 2013 European Vertical Market Penetration Leadership Award

LONDON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the border control and biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Vision-Box with the 2013 European Vertical Market Penetration Leadership Award.

Over the last five years, Vision-Box has made strong gains, registering 28-30 per cent year-on-year growth. Its strategic focus on facial recognition technology, backed by a unique end-to-end solution, has enabled Vision-Box to win five of the eight deployments in the Schengen area.

"Outstanding products, advanced technologies, competitively priced offerings and superior customer service have underpinned Vision-Box's success," noted Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Krzysztof Rutkowski. "Another key element has been its decision to focus on multimodal biometrics, an unobtrusive set of technologies for passengers, which aligns with border control's current technology requirements."

In the mid 2000's, Vision-Box made the decision to focus on facial recognition technology, resulting in the development of a robust and compelling product. The multimodal automatic border control (ABC) eGate developed by Vision-Box - vb i-match - fully supports multimodal biometrics (iris, fingerprint and facial recognition).

"The technology behind Vision-Box's multimodal biometrics increases throughput and passenger convenience, given that passengers are not required to enroll in the case of the face recognition biometric," explained Rutkowski. "The system simply verifies the passenger with the passport (token), supporting high levels of seamless, non-intrusive security."

Vision-Box's offering is highly robust, has rapid clearance times and has always exceeded the false reject and false acceptance threshold set by border control agencies.  It has an ultra-compact design, is flexible and modular. The system has been successfully deployed at Schiphol airport, the 6th busiest airport in the world for international passenger traffic as well, as at other land, air and sea borders, across the world.

At a time of high price sensitivity, Vision-Box offers customers advanced technology at extremely competitive prices. The company is able to achieve this through managing the entire business process internally and providing a full end-to-end, highly flexible and versatile solution that caters to customer and market demands.
