Sagem Sécurité South Africa recently held a well-attended partner function in Johannesburg with distribution partner Ideco to announce the latest in its MorphoAccess series of fingerprint readers and to introduce a new multimodal biometric device that adds a layer of security to an already secure identification solution.
The updated MorphoAccess J Series terminals feature a new, more attractive design and fit between the current 100 and 500 series terminals. Two new J series terminals were revealed at the function.
The first was a fingerprint biometric reader sporting a 500 dpi optical sensor in a sleek package that looks as good as it functions. The second product was a dual fingerprint and contactless card reader. The system supports a host of interfaces, including Wiegand and Ethernet, and it is Power over Ethernet ready. A wireless LAN option is also available. Users can use either MiFare or DESFire cards, or a combination of both.
This new terminal is also compatible with existing MorphoAccess systems and will be available in the second quarter of 2010.
Partnering with Hitachi
The second new product is a new multimodal finger vein and fingerprint device developed with Hitachi and first demonstrated at the Biometrics 2009 exhibition in London.
The new device combines Hitachi’s Finger Vein imaging (VeinID) to detect the pattern of blood vessels under the skin of the subject’s finger, and Sagem Sécurité’s fingerprint identification technology. It is currently the only multimodal device capable of simultaneously capturing and processing two sets of biometric data at once and can be used either for one-to-one or one-to-many verification.
Another benefit of the multimodal device is that both biometrics are scanned at the same time with a small, cost-efficient device. There are no time delays as recognition of both biometrics is fast and efficient.
It will be available in 2011.
