Xperi Introduces the First-in-its-Class IrisXR Solution for AR, VR, and MR Markets



Featuring MIRLIN iris recognition technology for premium security and personalization

FotoNation, a global leader in computational imaging, computer vision and facial analytics solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), today announced its new IrisXR™ iris recognition solution for the AR, VR, and MR markets. IrisXR features FotoNation’s MIRLIN® iris recognition technology and offers state-of-the-art anti-spoofing detection, providing premium security and personalization. The solution will be available in Q1 2018.

The IrisXR solution addresses the challenges with head-mounted wearables, such as working at close proximity, handling large occlusions and supporting wider eye gaze angles. With the highly secure (false acceptance rate of 1 in 10 million) and advanced MIRLIN technology, which is currently deployed in law enforcement and access control applications, IrisXR is a high performance biometric solution with a small memory footprint and low power consumption.

The AR, VR and MR markets continue to be a fast-growing segment, as dedicated AR and VR headsets collectively are expected to grow at a very strong pace from just under 10 million units in 2016 to just shy of 100 million units in 2021, with a five-year CAGR of 57.7%1). FotoNation has leveraged its innovative engineering expertise to provide a comprehensive biometric and computer vision portfolio and be a one-stop provider for its customers.

“Being a leader in the mobile space for high-performance imaging solutions, we were able to bring the high level of security featured in mobile device technology into IrisXR,” said Geir Skaaden, executive vice president and chief products and services officer, Xperi Corporation. “We are proud to bring this cutting-edge technology to market and offer a biometric solution that addresses several wearable challenges and is the right technology, not only for security but also for personalizing experiences. We believe iris biometrics in the AR, VR and MR markets will set a new trend for years to come.”
