Futronic Technology launches ten-print scanner

March 5, 2014 - 

Futronic Technology Company has just announced the commercial launch of its FS64 FBI EBTS/F certified ten print scanner.

According to the company, the FS64 can capture four flat fingerprints at a time, and both thumbs together. Capturing a person’s ten prints takes about 10 seconds. The new scanner can also capture rolling fingerprint images.

FS64 was certified by the FBI to be compliant with the EBTS/F Image Quality Specification for “Identification Flats Systems” and “Live Scan Systems.”

The fingerprint image captured by FS64 can be packed into an ANSI-381 or ISO19794-4 interchangeable format by using Futronic’s Enrollment Kit software. A lot of other software is also available including WSQ compression, NFIQ image quality check and a full feature capture demo. Program source codes of the demo software are provided as an example for the developer to customize their application. Customers who bought FS64 are allowed to use and distribute the software free of charge.

“FS64 is our low cost solution for large window scanner with a 3.0″x3.2″ effective scanning area,” Y.M. Jiang, Marketing Director at Futronic said. “The price of similar products was over USD1000 in the past and now Futronic is offering it well below USD1000. We believe that FS64 will open up new markets for large window scanners because the price is much more affordable now.”

According to the company, a modular form of the FS64 is available – called the FS65. It is the same except it doesn’t have a plastic shell.

Reported previously, in 2012, Asia Commercial Bank entered into a partnership with Futronic for one of its fingerprint authentication systems.
