Security and identity solution provider Morpho (Safran) announced that its MorphoWave desktop contactless fingerprint scanner has been certified by the FBI for meeting the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specifications standard.
The FBI certification validates that the images produced by the MorphoWave desktop are equivalent to other contact single-finger scanners and are suitable for a full range of uses.
“Achieving FBI PIV certification is another significant milestone for the advancement of our contactless fingerprinting technology, confirming its high quality imaging and compatibility with security systems already deployed worldwide,” said Morpho CEO, Anne Bouverot, about the certification. “Following unanimous industry recognition for its innovative qualities, and first commercial usage, this certification further demonstrates that contactless fingerprinting is no longer a speculative technology — it is a reliable choice for managing entry, exit, and access to valuable resources.”
The MorphoWave desktop uses advanced imaging technologies to simultaneously acquire four fingerprints in less than one second by a simple wave of the hand. MorphoWave desktop can capture fingerprint images for the left or right hand without the need to change device settings or add another scanner.
The MorphoWave desktop is especially suited for high traffic environments such as border control at international entry or exit ports, or access control at public and private facilities.
MorphoWave received the Security Industry Association’s 2015 Best New Product award, as well as the IFSEC and FIREX 2015 Access Control Product of the Year.
