According to the company, this deployment represents another step in the cooperation between Cross Match, NEC and the end user.
“Cross Match provided the first generation palm scanners to the agency back in 1996/1997, as one of the few companies able to meet the stringent technical requirements,” Roberto Wolfer, product manager for livescan solutions at Cross Match said. “Our close relationship with the prime, NEC Japan, enabled us to work together to fulfill the requirements of this latest deployment.”
Cross Match’s L Scan 500P is a palm scanner used by multiple law enforcement agencies around the world. The version incorporates a number of specific features requested by the agency for its third generation system. Cross Match modified the resolution to 508 dpi, modified the print image capture area, and incorporates some ergonomic enhancements. The 59 scanners covered under this contract represent the initial procurement and are to be deployed throughout Japan by the national law enforcement agency.
Reported previously, Cross Match recently released an INTERPOL compliant configuration of its Mission Oriented Biometric Software, known as MOBS.
Earlier this year, Cross Match also announced the release of two new versions of its Mobile Essentials SDK that integrates its Verifier Mw wireless handheld fingerprint scanner with Android and Blackberry smartphones.
