Innometriks has added Lumidigm’s Mercury multispectral biometric sensor to the Innometriks Cheetah card reader, which meets or exceeds credential authentication requirements as set forth by the U.S. Government identity programs including FIPS201/PIV, SP800-116 and the Transportation Worker’s Identity Credential (TWIC). Mercury biometric sensors feature multispectral imaging, a sophisticated technology developed to overcome the fingerprint capture problems conventional imaging systems have in less-than-ideal conditions.
Next Generation Card Reader Solution for Strong Identity Authentication and Smart Card Access Control Systems
To Be Showcased at Lumidigm ASIS Booth 2937 Biometric Consortium Conference – Lumidigm Booth 311 – September 27-29
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO – September 19, 2011 – Lumidigm today announced that Innometriks has added Lumidigm’s Mercury multispectral biometric sensor to the Innometriks Cheetah card reader, which meets or exceeds credential authentication requirements as set forth by U.S. Government identity programs including FIPS201/PIV, SP800-116 and the Transportation Worker’s Identity Credential (TWIC). Mercury biometric sensors feature multispectral fingerprint imaging, a sophisticated technology developed to overcome the capture problems conventional imaging systems have in less-than-ideal conditions.
“Multispectral imaging from Lumidigm lets our Cheetah reader capture superior fingerprint images quickly on all people in all environmental conditions,” emphasizes John Cassise, Innometriks CEO. “The Mercury sensors incorporate this field-proven technology into a reliable platform that allows for a smaller form factor and a lower cost.”
“Our Mercury multispectral sensors coupled with the Cheetah’s strong credential authentication provide a truly cost-effective reader for those who are serious about the entire security process,” adds Bill Spence, Lumidigm vice president, transaction services. “Security professionals now have a reader that seamlessly connects the next generation of credentials with the next generation of reliable fingerprint technology.”
Lumidigm Mercury multispectral fingerprint sensors capture fingerprint data beneath the surface of the skin so that dryness or even damaged or worn fingers create no problems for reliable reads. Using multiple wavelengths of light and advanced polarization techniques to extract unique fingerprint characteristics from both the surface and subsurface of the skin, the sensors provide Cheetah users with results that are more consistent, more inclusive and more tamper resistant than conventional biometric readers using an optical technology.
The Innometriks Cheetah reader and Lumidigm’s new Mariner fingerprint reader will be showcased at ASIS in Orlando, September 19-21 in Lumidigm booth 2937 and at Biometrics Consortium Conference in Tampa, September 27-29 in Lumidigm booth 311.
Innometriks develops and manufactures a suite of hardware and software products that provide strong identity authentication for mission critical environments. Strong identity authentication verifies an individual’s identity using technologies including biometrics, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and digital signatures, providing greater protection of critical assets and sensitive information. Innometriks innovative and comprehensive application suite offers credential validation and registration on a platform that is open, scalable and extensible. www.innometriks.com
