Multispectral Biometrics now available for Windows PCs.
Lumidigm recently announced that its new Mariner fingerprint reader extends the reading accuracy of multispectral imaging to Windows PC-based biometrics applications. The new Mariner sensors make biometric authentication simple and affordable for real business applications in various industries that require the durability and reliability that have been unavailable until now.
Up to 20% more reliable than conventional sensors, the Mariner sensor delivers a high-quality fingerprint to Windows PC for authentication.
“With Mariner, we are able to bring the field-proven Lumidigm Advantage to more users in more markets,” says Phil Scarfo, Lumidigm senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing. “Disappointed in conventional fingerprint sensors to date, serious business customers have been looking for a biometric sensor that does not require them to compromise durability, reliability or convenience. With Mariner, we are offering fast, durable and reliable business-class biometric readers for desktop user authentication and other Windows PC-based applications, even special mission-critical healthcare applications.”
According to Scarfo, unlike conventional biometrics technologies which rely on ideal conditions and clean surface contact alone, Mariner’s multispectral imaging reads both surface and subsurface fingerprints in the cold, hot, wet, dirty and dry conditions that impede traditional biometric sensors.
As a result, the new Mariner fingerprint sensor brings the Lumidigm Advantage to a wide range of business opportunities such as secure data access to multi-user workstations, electronic medical records, enterprise single sign on, point of sale applications, time and attendance data collection, laboratory equipment sign-on, data network access and other Windows-based applications in which organisations need to get a fast fingerprint read.
The Mariner sensor is also available as an OEM package, enabling easy integration into PC keyboards, kiosks, handheld devices or virtually any Windows PC-hosted application. This further extends the Lumidigm Advantage to applications requiring strong user authentication and/or non-repudiated audit trails in a world that is wet, dry and dirty.
The new Mariner fingerprint reader is available now.
