M2SYS launches hybrid biometric identification device with finger vein technology from Hitachi
M2SYS has just published details on its newest product – a hybrid, fused biometric scanner that combines fingerprint and finger vein identification technology.
The new device – the M2-FuseID – consists of technology from Hitachi Europe, and is manufactured in the United States. According to the company, this new device is the only fused device that can perform both one-to-many and one-to-one matching for both fingerprint and finger vein templates in a single environment. It captures FBI-compliant 500 DPI fingerprint image resolution and encrypts data transmitted over USB.
According to the company, the device is also available with M2SYS’ Hybrid Biometric matching systems, suited for one-to-many searches.
“The dynamics of biometric identification projects around the world necessitate ongoing innovation in hardware design that delivers greater accuracy and speed, especially for deployments that cover large databases consisting of millions of end users,” Mizan Rahman, founder and CEO of M2SYS said. “We worked closely with our partners at Hitachi Europe, Ltd. to design and develop this unique fused fingerprint and finger vein reader to meet the growing demand of fast, reliable results in diverse matching environments.”
According to a recent market report, Fujitsu, M2SYS and iAccess Systems are currently dominating the palm vein biometrics market. This particular market is set to grow at a CAGR of 46.6 percent between 2012 and 2016.
