Cross Match Technologies demonstrated the next version of its Guardian line of fingerprint scanners at the 2012 Biometric Consortium Conference & Biometric Technology Expo held in Tampa, FL last week.
BiometricUpdate.com first reported about the release of Cross Match’s new fingerprint scanners last week.
The original Guardian line set the standard for ten-print scanning and was selected for the U.S. VISIT program.
The Guardian’s new intelligent user interface and screen intuitively prompt a user through all necessary steps by indicating finger sequence, placement, and pressure; correcting typical mistakes and ensuring the rapid and accurate capture of high quality records every time.
The scanner incorporates “FlexFlat” and “FlexRoll” capture modes, providing a more user-friendly way to capture both flat and rolled fingers anywhere on the platen. In addition, a new optical design allows for high quality image capture regardless of whether a subject’s hands are wet or dry.
The firm also released its new Guardian IP product. Directly connecting to the network, the Guardian IP operates as a network appliance eliminating the need for a local computer and operating system.
When coupled with a server-based application, such as Cross Match’s WEBS, the Guardian IP provides unprecedented security and privacy, and a scalable and low maintenance approach to biometric implementations.
