IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - It's critical to know who is where in today's office buildings, schools, warehouses or labs, and affordable security options have been few. Today Shuttle Computer Group announces its HR70 all-in-one facial recognition hardware, expected to break through price barriers. Optional contactless card and fingerprint readers are also available. The HR70 will be in Booth #5274 at InfoComm in Orlando, June 12-14, 2013, the audio/visual display industry's biggest show.

"More and more companies are using security devices for employee access, time stamping and verification of employee location in case of an emergency, but high cost has been prohibitive," said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. "Now Shuttle has an affordable, all-in-one product, making it easier for integrators to develop a customized solution for any security installation."

Designed for commercial, industrial or institutional systems, Shuttle will make a software development kit (SDK) and an application programming interface (API) available so integrators can easily use the HR70 as a basis for electronic access control systems using facial recognition, optional card reading and/or fingerprint identification. Programmers can use one, two or all three devices together to determine security access levels.

Shuttle's HR 70 starts with a seven-inch LCD touch-screen panel and includes two 2.0 megapixel 720p high-definition cameras for a high degree of accuracy. It is powered by an Intel® Celeron® 847 17W CPU for fast search-and-match results through large databases.

Using the USB 3.0, RS232 and two-way RS485 communications support, programmers can create dynamic actions like opening doors, lifting garages, sliding bolts, releasing locks, or virtually any action based upon facial, fingerprint or card recognition, with almost instantaneous results. And because these devices are connected to a network, they can be remotely monitored from a central location, and security personnel can view access in real time.

The HR70 will be available in mid-July through ASI, Ingram, Ma Labs and Synnex and comes with a standard three-year limited warranty (terms and conditions apply); pricing will be announced at that time. Evaluation units for integrators are available from Shuttle directly.
