Idemia has launched its new biometrics platform designed to process identity verification at high-traffic sites such as airports and event venues.

The company said Thursday that its MFace Flex platform provides frictionless facial biometrics designed to concurrently scan multiple faces without requiring subjects to stop for a scan, allowing for continuous movement of large groups of people.

“MFace Flex is specifically designed to transform the travel experience by making key travel touch points as frictionless as possible,” said Donnie Scott, senior vice president of public security for North America at Idemia.

Idemia demonstrated MFace Flex during the Department of Homeland Security’s 2019 Biometric Technology Rally, which took place in May.

The firm is also exhibiting the system at the ongoing Future Travel Experience Global Conference event that ends Friday in Las Vegas.
