Suprema, a supplier of fingerprint recognition technology and systems, has announced that the company’s RealScan-D dual fingerprint live scanner tested in full compliance and received certification from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for the agency’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) Image Quality Specification (IQS) Appendix F standards.
FBI IQS standards for live-scanning systems are mandatory for the purpose of FBI and most countries’ government procurements. But within the dual/single fingerprint live scanner sector, the majority of products on the market satisfy FBIs PIV standards which is relatively lighter than IQS Appendix F, according to Suprema. With a launch of RealScan-D, Suprema says it is the second company among live-scanner manufacturers to release a FBI IQS appendix F certified dual-finger live scanner.
Suprema RealScan-D is a portable dual fingerprint capturing live scanning device using the company’s optical image processing technology. The device has extra wide platen for easier capturing of dual fingerprints and rolled fingerprints, and is designed to be cheaper than 10-prints live scanners. RealScan-D is designed for high-speed image capturing for single finger flats, rolls and two-finger flats and transfers image data to PC via high speed USB2.0 connection.
"RealScan-D has been developed to fulfill growing needs from e-passport and national identification (NID) applications which generally requires 2 or 4 fingerprints for registration. Especially for the countries implementing e-passport enabled border control and autogates (unattended immigration check), the demand for dual fingerprint live scanners will grow," commented James Lee, CEO of Suprema.
