DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GITEX Technology Week - AOptix Technologies, Inc. (AOptix) (www.aoptix.com), a leading developer of advanced biometrics-based identity solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with emaratech, a major regional system integrator for Government, Border Control, Aviation Security and Electronic Identification Systems and the sole creator and provider of smart and electronic border control gates in all of UAE airports, Sultanate of Oman, Sultan Qaboos airport and Jordan Queen Alia airport.

“It is a great honor to be of service to our clients with such a wonderful family of breakthrough products”

Exhibiting at GITEX Technology week in Dubai, October 9th – 13th attendees are getting a first look at the new AOptix InSight® Duo – the world’s first system capable of simultaneous ISO standards-compliant iris and face capture. Combining the ubiquity of face and the proven accuracy of iris together in one system, the InSight Duo is particularly well suited to high throughput immigration and aviation security applications requiring the performance and versatility of both biometrics.

“We are impressed with the AOptix solution for next generation Iris Recognition for the UAE and the region,” said Thani Alzaffin – Director General and Board Member of emaratech. “We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship that will benefit our Middle East customers.”

Well known for their InSight family of 2 meter stand-off iris recognition systems, AOptix is also demonstrating its InSight Iris Recognition e-Gate solution for high throughput, high security applications. By combining the InSight iris recognition system with an optical barrier and barcode reader, the InSight e-Gate requires only the swipe of a boarding pass and a brief glance at the InSight system to securely authenticate a traveler’s identity in seconds.

With a growing demand for proven, accurate, high-throughput iris recognition systems, AOptix will continue to support system integrator partners such as emaratech with some of the most innovative and forward-looking biometric identity products in the world through the AOptix regional headquarters in Dubai.

“It is a great honor to be of service to our clients with such a wonderful family of breakthrough products,” says Nidal Mallouhi, Director of Sales for MENA / CIS. “We welcome the partnership with emaratech and are committed to their success.”

The iris is widely understood to be the most accurate and stable of all biometric identifiers, and AOptix InSight is unique in its ability to capture consistently high quality biometric images with systems that are fast, accurate and very easy to use. Deployed internationally at borders and airports, the InSight is helping to enhance security and traveler management while improving the overall traveler experience.
