Scanning of fingerprint cards continues to be a critical component of many large-scale fingerprint matching systems; it is often critical to make use of legacy fingerprint cards that were collected prior to installation of an AFIS. There are millions of fingerprint cards globally that have never been digitized. Fingerprint card scanning must be performed in large volumes without sacrificing image quality or data accuracy. Next-generation fingerprint card scanning solutions are equipped with advanced capabilities such as OCR correctness confidence and line removal. They enable rapid, high-volume scanning of cards while ensuring that the fingerprint images captured from them are suitable for search in a large-scale AFIS.
