Converus Releases New Tablet Version of EyeDetect Station
The tablet version of the EyeDetect station is even more portable and easier to set up. It weighs 12 pounds, including the laptop bag carrying case.
LEHI, Utah – June 24, 2016 – EyeDetect, the world’s first ocular-motor based deception test and currently the most accurate lie detection technology on the market, is now available in a tablet version. Converus, manufacturers of EyeDetect, is accepting and fulfilling orders.
Version 2 of the EyeDetect Station weighs just 12 pounds and includes a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 instead of a Lenovo computer. The tablet will greatly reduce the overall size and complexity of the station. In addition to a tablet stand, it will include an eye tracker (high-definition infrared camera), chin rest and headphones as the current EyeDetect station. The keyboard and mouse are now wireless.
“The tablet version of EyeDetect is 85 percent smaller and 75 percent lighter than the present station, and will fit in a backpack or laptop bag,” said Converus President and CEO Todd Mickelsen. “The convenience and portability of using a tablet to deliver this new lie detection technology will make it easier and less complicated for our Service Partners and customers to screen job candidates and employees.”
With the new tablet design, the following components previously included in the original table-top station are now built-in to the tablet and no longer needed separately: web cam, DataLocker (now using BitLocker technology), external monitor, controller (green/red button) and external speaker. The new station has just two cables attached (for A/C power and the eye tracker).
EyeDetect technology is different from polygraph. In a polygraph exam, the subject is connected to various sensors while in an EyeDetect test, the subject is required to look at a computer screen while answering a series of true/false questions. During the EyeDetect tests, a high-definition infrared camera monitors involuntary eye behaviors — including pupil dilation, blink rate and eye gaze fixations — to detect deception. The test takes 30 minutes and provides a “truthful” or “deceptive” score within 10 minutes. Polygraph exams, the long-time standard for lie detection, require a trained examiner, can take between 90 minutes to two hours to conduct, and reports can sometimes take hours to receive.
Field tests show EyeDetect has a mean accuracy of 85 percent for guilty and innocent individuals. When used in conjunction with the polygraph, and when both tests have the same result, the confidence outcome may reach as high as 99.8 percent, says Mickelsen.
“EyeDetect is the first viable lie detection technology to come to market since the first modern polygraph was invented in 1921,” said Mickelsen. “It has the scientific studies that show it works, and over 200 companies and government agencies throughout 20 different countries have been using it for screening thousands of job candidates and current employees since 2014.”
