Neurotechnology has announced new releases across its line of biometric SDKs, including the addition of facial biometrics to the new MegaMatcher Accelerator 6.0.
The MegaMatcher Accelerator is a multi-modal software and hardware combination. Now, with its new facial biometric capabilities, boasts matching speeds of up to 100 million templates per second and the solution has a capacity of up to 10 million faces on a single server.
“Faces can now be matched at the same speed level as fingerprints and irises in our flagship product – MegaMatcher Accelerator,” Justas Kranauskas, project lead for Neurotechnology said.
“This will significantly reduce the complexity of large-scale identification/de-duplication projects that make use of facial biometrics. We are also hoping to lower the cost of development by adding a Development Edition of MegaMatcher Accelerator to our MegaMatcher SDK.”
According to the company, other changes include an update to the VeriSpeak algorithm, which now allows for text-independent speaker recognition.
The new MegaMatcher comes in both standard and extended versions – the latter of which is able to manage up to 10 million faces and achieve a speed of 100 million faces per second. The fingerprint/AFIS and iris capabilities maintain the same features as MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0, with matching speeds of up to 100 million fingerprints per second and up to 200 million irises per second. It can manage a database of up to 40 million fingerprints and 50 million irises. Multiple MegaMatcher Accelerators can be connected in a cluster to manage databases with billions of records for even higher volume applications. MegaMatcher Accelerator 6.0 Extended Version runs on an HP ProLiant DL360p G8 server with 128 GB RAM.
