Charlotte, NC - April 10, 2014 - With the increasing popularity of unlimited university meal plans, the need to accurately identify students at dining halls has become an economic reality. Additionally, hungry diners are not happy with having to wait in line as those ahead of them fumble in their wallets and purses for their ID cards.
The ColorID Biometric Dining Solution is now in operation on the campus of Georgia Southern University, using hardware and software from Iris ID. Each student looks into an Iris ID camera for about one second and when they are positively identified, their card number is instantaneously transmitted to the meal plan system.
"We are thrilled by the response from many prominent universities to the news of this system at Georgia Southern," said Danny Smith, owner and Executive Vice President of ColorID. "It seems that biometric identification has become accepted by today's students as a comfortable and convenient means of identification."
Richard Wynn, Director of the Eagle Card program added, "We had a conference of NACAS delegates on campus who applauded as they watched students walk up to the iris cameras, be identified and proceed into the dining hall without interruption." Tim Stahl, Associate Director of Infrastructure at GSU said that the integration with their meal plan system went smoothly, with assistance from ColorID and Iris ID.
Tim Ortscheid of ColorID added, "The high security benefits that have led many international data centers to install iris identification for access are now available for high-throughput applications. The cost per user has also come down to a very attractive level."
With the experience of installing hundreds of Iris ID systems in high security applications, ColorID has now worked with several universities and integrators to implement these in dining hall applications for both meal plans and cash POS transactions. Significant interest has also been expressed in other campus applications, such as athletic team locker rooms, rec centers and daycare centers.

Known to be the most accurate form of real-time biometric identification, the Iris ID system takes a picture of the subject's eyes with several special cameras within the Iris ID device. Since it is only a camera, there is no harm to the user. Operating at a distance of 12"-16", there is also no contact with the device. Enrollments are performed during the time it takes for an ID card to print during orientation.
Unlike other forms of biometrics, iris identification has a very small number of outliers and the highest possible degree of accuracy. The iris is the most complex and randomly chaotic biometric feature of the human body, so the chance of two persons having the same iris pattern is 1 out of 10-78. Even identical twins do not have the same iris patterns.
