The HID® U.ARE.U™ Camera Identification System, incorporating Paravision technology, enables best-in-class facial recognition for identification and verification use cases such as banking, retail, travel and transportation, healthcare, hospitality, time and attendance and physical access control.


Solution Overview

Designed for seamless integration into a wide variety of touch points, from mobile devices to kiosks to eGates, the U.ARE.U Camera Identification System combines HID multispectral imaging (MSI) technology with modern AI and machine learning algorithms to deliver superior ‘in-the-wild’ recognition across widely changing light conditions, backgrounds, expressions and demographics. Using industry-leading passive liveness security and advanced presentation attack detection (PAD), the camera can easily verify that the person in front of the camera is real, preventing fraud attempts and mitigating risks.

The camera performs capture, matching, identification, verification and liveness detection at the edge. This on-device biometric processing feature reduces bandwidth constraints and improves performance. Also, data is encrypted and processed on the camera to ensure maximum security.

By combining multiple cameras in a single device, the HID U.ARE.U Camera Identification System provides the highest level of matching performance and accuracy for customers who require the best user experience.

On-device biometric processing

The HID U.ARE.U Camera Identification System brings Paravision’s facial recognition and matching to the edge, significantly reducing bandwidth constraints, boosting system performance, and maximizing data security.

Remarkable ‘In-the-Wild’ Recognition

Combining HID multispectral imaging (MSI) technology with Paravision’s AI and ML capabilities powers reliable matching performance in the most diverse circumstances, such as various lighting conditions, backgrounds, poses, clothing, and expressions, delivering exceptional performance anytime, anywhere.

Flexible Implementation

The U.ARE.U Camera Identification System is designed to support a wide variety of deployment scenarios, such as USB/Ethernet, PC, mobile devices, kiosks or eGates. The system enables standalone deployment or integration as a part of a larger ecosystem.

Case study

HID’s U.ARE.U Camera Identification System was integrated with a major healthcare provider’s patient engagement platform to deliver fast, secure patient onboarding and check-in. Some of the key benefits that have been realized by the customer are:

  • Fast, secure, touchless, hygienic patient check-in
  • Medical fraud prevention and investigation: Irrefutable proof of presence when it comes to patient identification and verified eligibility of care
  • Data Protection: enabled by data encryption and processing on the camera to ensure maximum security
  • Streamlined workflow and reduced human errors
  • Extraordinary patient experience with better patient care and services
  • Faster Time to Revenue: Facial recognition helps reduce administrative tasks, streamlines patient record management and eases insurance claim processes, contributing to faster time to payment collections
