NEC Corporation of America announced it has secured a multi-year service contract with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in which it will provide the department with its new Integra-ID 5 multimodal biometric identification system.
Under the agreement terms, NEC will host and manages the multimodal biometric identification solution at its data center.
Integra-ID 5 provides a number of new services and upgrades including a fully-scalable, advanced latent fingerprint processing, which offers multi-algorithm encoding and fusion matching on NEC’s service oriented architecture platform.
The platform also features built-in support of a range of biometrics modalities, including fingerprint, palm print, face, iris, and voice.
“Our department is dedicated to fighting crime and improving the quality of life in Las Vegas as well as maintaining the safety of the millions of visitors that Las Vegas hosts each year,” said Sheriff Joseph Lombardo. “In addition to assuring us a top-of-the-line MBIS solution for our forensic needs, the NEC solution with its flexible service model and annual payment plan met our fiscal constraints and budgeting needs as well.”
NEC said the LVMPD project is one of several managed service contracts it has been awarded in the past three months.
“The Las Vegas metropolitan area has had astonishing growth, becoming the most populous American city founded in the twentieth century,” said Raffie Beroukhim, vice president of the NEC biometrics solutions division. “We are pleased to have offered our IDaaS model, relieving LVMPD of a large capital expenditure and enabling the implementation of this upgrade through their operational budget.”
Previously reported, NEC recently signed a multi-year service agreement with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to provide them with its flagship multimodal biometrics identification solution.
