Dermalog Identification Systems GmbH will be presenting its product offerings at CeBIT, taking place in Hanover this week. This includes the LF! Fingerprint scanner, which the company says is the smallest optical fingerprint scanner in the world.
According to the company, this is the first time the scanner has been presented to the public.
The LF1 has dimensions of 29 mm x 43 mm x 14 mm and weighs 19 grams. The scanner provides a 13x17mm recording window and guarantees that scans can be compared to very large databases.
To accompany its scanner offerings, Dermalog has developed software which guarantees the full functionality of an AFIS when used on mobile devices. The software supports mobile use of the LF1, F1, ZF1, ZF1e and ZF1+ smart card reader.
The company has also recently picked up an IT Innovation Prize in the e-payment category as a part of the “initiative mittelstand” at CeBIT. Specifically, this prize recognizes a banking project in Brazil, in which Dermalog kitted HSBC Bank to be the first in the world in an AFIS for the biometric registration of bank customers to allow cash withdrawal and payment with fingerprint data.
“We are very much looking forward to presenting our latest products to the specialist public at one of the most important international industry events,” Günther Mull, Managing Director of Dermalog said. “Our new products are a reaction to an increasing demand for mobile solutions for biometric identification systems and are more proof of just how innovative Dermalog can be. We are constantly working on improving applications and using our products to make more and more identifications simpler and more secure. This applies to government applications such as national border control systems, biometric personal identity cards and passports, and also to commercial purposes such as cashless payments at supermarket tills and banks. And, last but not least, our technology will soon confine forgetting passwords for the computer to history.”
