Students register delight at new face-fit check-in.

HIGH-TECH facial recognition technology has swept aside the 
old-fashioned signing of the register at a school.

Sixth-formers will now have their faces scanned as they arrive in the 
morning at the City of Ely Community College.

It is one of the first schools in the UK to trial the new technology 
with its students.

Face Register uses the latest high-tech gadgets to register students in 
and out of school in just 1.5 seconds.

The technology works by scanning faces with an infra-red light and 
matching their image with key facial features stored on a secure system.

Not only a hit with the students, who enjoy signing themselves in, the 
system is saving a member of staff about an hour and a half each day in 
recording data.
