Morpho’s 3D Facial Recognition Opens Doors to Exclusive Houston Club

Alexandria, Va., November 18, 2013

Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary MorphoTrak, provides 3D facial recognition technology for secure access at The Marque, the most exclusive membership club in Houston, Texas.

The Marque business social club selected the Morpho 3D Face Reader™, to provide a highly secure yet convenient biometric solution that allows members-only access to certain areas of the club. With Morpho 3D Face Readers, access control is fast -- a quick glance at the reader and members are instantly recognized, unlocking doors to the exclusive areas.

Analyzing the three-dimensional structure of the user's face, the Morpho 3D Face Reader™ achieves highly accurate, reliable and quick matching while ensuring high throughput. The system is also used in data centers, communications facilities, casinos, laboratories and corporate headquarters; anywhere a high level of convenience and security is needed.  

"It's all very James Bond—which is why we love it," says Keith Thompson, general manager of The Marque. "The Marque can make the promise that ‘If the doors are not open… you always carry the key,' with facial recognition technology from MorphoTrak."

The Marque is an exclusive retreat where members entertain clients, conduct business meetings, or simply relax in luxury.

"Morpho is the most trusted provider of biometric readers for access control with proven success in more industries and environments than any other," adds Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. "The 3D Face Reader's lightning-speed and hands-free operation is the perfect solution for the discerning members of The Marque."
