Video verification software at ICE

Biometric security tech company Facebanx will be launching new KYC verification software at the International Casino Exhibition (ICE) in London this week.  The software allows online gaming operators and payment processors to use biometrics in order to verify and authenticate their customers.

The technology works with any of today’s devices such as a PC, tablet or smartphone that is fitted with a camera.  No additional hardware is required.

Operators can use a combination of face recognition, voice recognition and ID document capture including passports, driving licensing and credit cards.  The software can be integrated directly into an operator’s platform and all the data stored within their database.

The full process can also work in Facebanx’s browser video chat solution.  For example, during a one-to-one live video chat environment with a user.  The operator’s CRM can capture their face, voice and ID documents through an existing user’s camera.  It will verify and match the person’s details, checking that the face does not beyond to another person in the system, verify a live face capture with the ID document, and check and authenticate that the ID documents matches public records or a database.

Steve Cook, Business Development Director for Facebanx, said: “Operators no longer need to process a new user manually by relying on email scanned copies of passports and other ID documents.  Our solution works in real time whereby a new customer can hold up their ID document into the camera, an image is taken and at the same time the data can verified.  The process works in a matter of seconds and the performance has a 99.8% accuracy.”
