Our revolutionary identity in motion product identifies people as they walk past a sensor at full walking speed, enabling frictionless identification. The founding team has spent the last decade building and deploying large scale biometric identification systems in the Middle East for the Department of Defense and are bringing their expertise to the commercial market to provide security, access control and VIP customer experiences to the commercial market.
Privacy First Facial Recognition is Here
In our solutions, users have complete visibility and control over their account. Our mission is to improve user experiences across a variety of access control situations with innovative facial recognition technology while preserving individual privacy at all times.
With Blink Identity, users walk past our system at a normal walking speed. You don’t have to slow down or look at the camera.
We acquire a face image and match in half a second (a blink!)
Once the user is matched, a wide variety of application-specific actions can happen, including:
A ticketed user is allowed into a venue
A door or turnstile is triggered, allowing access
An unauthorized person is denied access
Your Face, Your Identity
Blink Identity was developed to enable rapid access to venues in a way that preserves privacy and puts individuals in control of their data.
Before the Event
Invited participants enroll via special email. Blink Identity systems are voluntary and opt-in, always.
Individuals enroll by uploading a cell phone “selfie” photograph to Blink Identity. It only takes seconds to enroll.
The photograph is converted to a mathematical construct called a template. All matching is done with templates and templates cannot be converted back into photographs.
Data, usually name and email address, is also collected and stored with the template. All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest.
At the Venue
Blink Identity lanes are clearly and visibly marked. Individuals walk through the Blink Identity lane, allowing them to be identified at walking speed without having to stop or touch anything.
While walking, a photograph is taken. The photograph is converted to a template and then deleted instantly. The template is matched to the enrollment template and the corresponding shared key is sent to the venue.
The individual has visibility to and control over their data at all times. Our solution is GDPR compliant.
Individuals control if and when to connect their data to a venue. When this happens, a shared key is created to connect the Blink Identity template to the venue. Blink Identity never has access to venue data and the venue never has access to Blink Identity data.
