For Immediate Release
SAFR® from RealNetworks at ISC West 2023
Las Vegas Venetian Expo
March 29-31, 2023
SAFR™ SCAN from RealNetworks Highlights New Integrations, Features and Mobile App in Secure, Seamless Facial Authentication Platform, Moving Biometrics Into Mainstream Application
Seattle, Wash., March 21, 2023—SAFR™ SCAN from RealNetworks, the AI-powered face authentication solution designed for mainstream commercial applications, will bring its latest computer vision access control solution to Booth 3089 during ISC West 2023, March 29-31 in Las Vegas.
With a focus on security, convenience and affordability, SAFR SCAN is a frictionless solution that’s environmentally sound and avoids adding to the approximately 300 million plastic proximity cards disposed of or lost each year. SAFR SCAN integrates with AMAG Symmetry, Avigilon ACM, Feenics, Genetec Synergis, Johnson Controls C•CURE 9000, PCSC LINC-NXG and Schneider Electric Access Expert software platforms at the API level. SAFR SCAN interfaces to any access control system via Wiegand or an integral, fully encrypted Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) connection. SAFR’s computer vision code is among the smallest footprints and most efficient offerings in the facial recognition marketplace, making it easy to deploy in edge devices.
SAFR SCAN authenticates up to 30 individuals per minute and functions as a 3-in-1 device for access control, video surveillance and video intercom capabilities. Since its initial introduction in 2022, SAFR SCAN continues to evolve, adding a powerful feature to help detect and prevent tailgating as well as full person record export and import capabilities.
See these and other features at Booth 3089 during ISC West:
- Certification & Expansion with AMAG Technology
SAFR SCAN biometric access readers now provide direct interface capabilities with Symmetry Access Control from AMAG Technology. The symmetry mobile enrollment application seamlessly enables enrollment to SAFR SCAN for face authentication. The SAFR solution allows easy management of credentials, enabling administrators to add or remove users, modify user access levels and restrict access based on permissions. This integration provides full record export and import of physical identity credentials as well as batching; mask detection to ensure policy compliance; live detection and real-time spoofing alerts with 98.5% accurate recognition of masked faces; and real-time alerts of unauthorized entry attempts.
- Feenics Bi-Directional Integration
SAFR SCAN now connects directly to the Feenics cloud, allowing for complete system management of transactions, credentials, enrollments and system configuration. This integration simplifies access control specifications by utilizing the door controller features of SAFR SCAN. It allows for enrollment, deactivation of credentials and setting access levels and permissions directly from the SAFR SCAN reader, meaning no panel is required.
- Certification of Genetec Integration
SAFR for Access Control and SAFR for Surveillance are officially certified by the Genetec Development Acceleration Program to run with the Genetec Synergis™ access control system and Security Center video management system (VMS). The SAFR platform provides best-in-class access control with the SAFR SCAN frictionless door station integrated with Synergis and SAFR video surveillance software integrated with Security Center, which yields actionable data from the live video feeds like surveillance watchlist, occupancy, demographic composition, dwell times and more. All data passed through SAFR is protected with AES-256 encryption in transmission and at rest.
- SAFR Key Mobile Credentials
With mobile credentials continuing to gain popularity, SAFR Key mobile credentials provide an affordable and convenient physical identity solution, enabling users to leverage their smartphones to access secured areas. SAFR Key uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to enable communication between the mobile device and SAFR SCAN. The user’s mobile device acts as a virtual key and transmits an encrypted code to the access control system to unlock the door. SAFR Key can be used as the only credential read by SAFR SCAN for those who wish to opt out of face authentication or used with face authentication for dual-factor credentialing at high-security doors. SAFR Key is extremely secure and compatible with the Public Key Open Credential (PKOC) standard, an open specification written and supported by the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA). It is available for both iOS and Android devices and supports a wide range of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets.
The SAFR SCAN Difference
Ideal for both indoor and outdoor environments with changing lighting conditions, SAFR SCAN’s facial recognition technology is 99.9% accurate and uses anti-spoofing technology to ensure the liveness of the individual being authenticated. All SAFR SCAN data is secured and encrypted with no facial images being recorded or stored anywhere within the system for further personal privacy protections. SAFR SCAN incorporates two type of liveness technologies to combat presentation attacks: structured 3D liveness and RGB liveness. The SAFR algorithms were developed to minimize bias; SAFR performed best for low bias of all algorithms tested by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
