NEC multimodal biometric solution selected by two California counties

January 8, 2015 - 

NEC Corporation of America announced that it is providing its multimodal biometrics identification solution (MBIS) Integra-ID 5 to the Cal-ID units of San Bernardino and Riverside counties in California, to upgrade their existing identification, biometrics and forensics capabilities.

The Integra-ID 5 updates SB/RV’s current AFIS functionality with an advanced biometric solution that integrates a range of authentication options, including fingerprint, palm-print and facial recognition.

The implementation of the NEC solution adheres to the FBI’s Electronic Biometric Transmission Standard version 10, 1000 ppi resolution, business continuity and disaster recovery.

It includes provisions for future biometric modalities, along with products that deliver built-in protection of technology investments.

The NEC solution’s key differentiators are significant accuracy, ease of use, centralized system management and interoperability.

Integra-ID 5‘s seamless interoperability with single-encoding of latent inquiries will allow SB/RV to access almost 50 million records from neighboring counties, California Department of Justice, Western Identification Network and Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

“We appreciate the renewed trust demonstrated to us by the selection of our solution and we are pleased to partner with the San Bernardino and Riverside counties again,” said Raffie Beroukhim, vice president of biometrics solutions division at NEC Corporation of America. “We look forward to providing them with advanced biometrics and identification technologies for years to come.”

The NEC Integra-ID 5 MBIS solution is part of NEC’s Building Safer Cities platform, the company’s smart technology approach to maximize all aspects of installed programs.

Previously reported, NEC Corporation of America’s Integra-ID5 multimodal biometric identification system solution was accepted by the Western Identification Network, an organization of western U.S. state and local law enforcement agencies.
