Probaris updates biometric enrollment software

February 28, 2013 - 

Probaris has announced the release of its updated enrollment software – Probaris Enrollment – used to capture biometrics in the process of registering individuals in identity management systems. Probaris Enrollment now also supports the VistaFA2 camera for facial recognition.

The VistaFA2 takes high quality images in normal office lighting conditions. The camera, available from Corvus Integration, is capable of capturing ISO/IEC 19794-5 compliant facial images. VIstaFA2’s controls have been fully integrated within the Probaris Enrollment system.

“Our goal is to capture high quality biometrics the first time, every time,” Chris Miles, Director of Software Development for Probaris said. “The subject wants to have their biometrics enrolled quickly, allowing them to resume their normal workday activities.”

The enrollment system captures fingerprints, facial images and birthing documents during the identity enrollment process. Though the VistaFA2 has just been integrated, the application supports several camera models, fingerprint scanners and document scanners. The digital package includes an electronic biometric transaction system file (EBTS), and INCITS-378 fingerprint template, an INCITS-385 facial recognition template, a digital photograph and digital copies of birthing douments.

According to the company, Probaris Enrollment is typically used in conjunction with Probaris ID, the company’s commercially available FIPS 201 and PIV- compliant product for identity registration and enrollment.

Late last year, Probaris announced the release of its updated Probaris ID software.

The VistaFA2 camera is support by a wide number of enrollment systems, including the MegaMatcher SDK from Neurotechnology.
