Morpho has launched a new fingerprint identification terminal, the MorphoAccess SIGMA series, aimed at access control and time and attendance applications.

According to the company, the new system will be on display at its booth (#1516), at the 2013 ASIS conference in Chicago, from September 24-27, 2013.

The MorphoAccess SIGMA series was developed following Morpho’s acquisition of L-1 Identity Solution’s Bioscrypt division.

The new access control system includes touch screen and videophone functions, and leverages Morpho’s fingerprint algorithms. Face detection and duress finger are also available as security enhancements. Besides one-to-many searches, this new system also supports one-to-one authentication for smartcard and NFC applications.

“After careful research into the feedback gathered from our large Morpho and L-1 Bioscrypt customer base, our new biometric terminals represent a landmark in innovation from Morpho,” Thomas Chenevier, VP products and markets, Identification Division at Morpho said. “Our commitment to excellence has fueled the design of the MorphoAccess SIGMA Series, enabling us to go beyond customer expectations. This new development reaffirms Morpho’s dedication to retaining and strengthening its world leadership in the access control and time and attendance markets.”

Reported previously, Morpho recently signed a strategic agreement with INTERPOL, to provide a range of its biometric solutions and technical support over the next five years.
