WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the 2016 Connect:ID conference in our nation’s capital enters its final day, many participants are encountering information overload from the sheer number of exciting biometric innovations being displayed by exhibitors and reported on by media sponsor PlanetBiometrics. On the show floor, a myriad of different agencies, organizations, businesses and technologists from the U.S. and across the globe have been winding their way from booth to booth to learn about advances such as the new Kojak FAP 60 Appendix F Certified ten print and roll live scanner. While these daytime show floor interactions lay the groundwork for collaboration, it has been the many special evening events, like Integrated Biometric’s Kojak Launch Party Tuesday night at The Dignitary Whiskey Bar, which have provided the opportunity for more in-depth engagements.
A vibrant crowd of between 80-100 biometrics industry professionals gathered together to connect with one another and continue their conversations about needs and solutions. The welcoming, relaxed atmosphere allowed attendees to wind-down with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails (including the “Kojak” and “Bald & Bitter” to further the night’s theme) while grabbing valuable one-on-one time with C-level executives to move business relationships forward.
The crowd contained a “who’s who” of biometrics industry leadership, including Canadian identity verification company Coppernic; Northern Virginia’s InCadence Strategic Solutions, providing technical solutions and support in the areas of biometrics and identity management, among others; Tascent, a Silicon Valley-based biometrics and identity product developer; and D.C. area biometrics and IT developer NEC.
In addition to networking and sharing best practices, the Launch Party provided an opportunity for attendees to learn more about Kojak and its ability to facilitate the enrollment and identification of large groups of people, capturing ten fingerprints in ten seconds. This truly mobile certified scanner was on hand at the event, running off a smartphone for hours without the need for any additional power source.
