German biometrics company JENETRIC announced today that it took first place at the 12th IQ Innovation Award Central Germany in the category of information technology for its LIVETOUCH quattro FBI certified fingerprint scanner.
100 branch experts from industry and academia reviewed 61 submitted innovations in a multistage jury process.
“During development we especially had the people in mind, who will use the product. Thanks to the unique user guidance of our ‘LIVETOUCH quattro’ people will be more confident and successful at being identified through fingerprints; they might even enjoy using the device,” says Roberto Wolfer, one of the founders and CEO of JENETRIC GmbH.
According to a statement from the company, what makes the LIVETOUCH quattro different from other devices is that the fingerprint capture area can also be used to display instructions and provide the user with feedback to quickly assure proper finger placement. All instructions are designed in a way that can be understood by users independent of differences in language, culture or previous knowledge, making it ideally suited for use at airports or borders, where people with different backgrounds are required to identify themselves by fingerprints.
The image sensor of LIVETOUCH quattro uses the optical TFT technology, allowing not only a new user experience, but also the future mobile use as well as scanning of documents.
The IQ Innovation Award Central Germany is awarded by the European metropolitan region “Mittel-deutschland” and its partner in Leipzig, Halle (Saale) and Magdeburg for marketable innovations from the Central German clusters Automotive, Life Sciences, Chemicals / Plastics, Energy / Environment / Solar Industry and Information Technology.
