Biometric speed enhancements

November 2016 News, Access Control & Identity Management, Products

HID Global announced important enhancements to its Lumidigm V-Series biometrics solutions. The company has added features that further improve accuracy and interoperable image transfer of its V-Series product line while quadrupling the image capture speed of the embedded sensors and modules. The biometric solution is ideal for faster customer authentication at ATMs, provider authentication for medical dispensing and identity verification for voting systems.

Each Lumidigm V-Series device uses the company’s patented multispectral imaging to acquire fingerprint images, even under harsh environmental conditions. The V-Series provides biometric interoperability, liveness detection for fraud prevention and proven robustness to reduce total cost of ownership in unattended and high-throughput applications.

“The key focus of biometrics has traditionally been on accuracy and security, but that doesn’t have to come at a sacrifice to speed and user experience,” said Paul Butler, vice president and general manager for biometrics with HID Global.

The enhanced features of the V-Series include four times faster finger image capture for seamless user transactions, improving usability while reducing user errors. The solution is now Minutiae Interoperability Exchange (MINEX) III certified, delivering up to five times greater accuracy using a top-ranked industry-standard algorithm. It also includes FBI-certified Wavelet Scalar Quantisation (WSQ) image compression for fast, interoperable image transfer.
