What is eyeD™?
eyeD™ is the first equine identification system that is secure, easy-to-use and accurate. It uses the unique features of a horse’s iris to identify the animal and serves as an easy alternative to the complication and uncertainty of traditional ID methods.
How it Works
The eyeD Solution utilizes a totally non-invasive and highly accurate pattern recognition technology: iris scans. In simple terms, an eyePrint scan is a digital photo of the iris of a horse’s eye. No two irises are alike, making this method of identification more accurate than a fingerprint. Watch the video below to see how our simple 3 step process works.
The eyeD™ Advantage
eyeD offers you non-invasive, accurate identification without putting undue stress on your horse.
Frequently Asked Questions
eyeD is a non-invasive method of animal identification using iris scan technology.
No. A photo is being taken of your horse’s eye, so his head would just have to be kept still while that is being done. The operator needs to be about 10 to 14 inches from the horse to capture the image. It is necessary to photograph each eye.
Similar to a fingerprint, no two irises are alike. Presently, iris scan technology is the most accurate of all existing equine ID methods.
No. In essence, the operator is just taking a photo of your horse’s eyes using infrared illumination and this process presents no short- or long-term effects.
Infrared Illumination is a deep red light that is at the edge of the visible light spectrum. The amount of infrared light we are using for illumination is much less than you would get outside on a sunny day.
There are many different types of information that can be used in conjunction with the eyeD system, and we are in the process of determining what information we will utilize.
