Crossmatch introduces latest ten-print mobile fingerprint technology

September 19, 2016 - 

Crossmatch unveiled its latest ten-print sensor technology that it is designed to further innovate mobile livescan.

The new FAP60 thin film transistor (TFT) sensor provides enables law enforcement, military and border management officers to process FBI compliant enrollments and rapid ID checks on a single device, all without the weight and bulk of optical-based sensors.

“There are several ten-print devices on the market today that claim to be the lightest and smallest,” said Ben Ball, government market director at Crossmatch. “Yet the optical technology in these devices cannot match the flexibility and mobility of our radically thin and lightweight TFT sensor.”

Crossmatch is initially offering the FAP60 TFT sensor technology in a mobile handheld device with wireless capabilities to demonstrate its ability to integrate with existing phones, tablets and laptops.

The company is demonstrating both the sensor and the device at the Global Identity Summit, held September 19 to 22 at the Tampa Convention Center.

“The options that the new FAP60 sensor deliver are expansive, offering the truly mobile ten-print capability our customers are demanding,” said Richard Agostinelli, CEO of Crossmatch. “Up to this point, mobile customers have been limited by smaller FAP30 and FAP45 sensors which do not meet FBI standards for enrollment. Being able to complete a mobile 4-4-2 capture without stitching opens up new use cases that previous and current market technologies are unable to fulfill.”

The new technology and wireless device’s use cases include in-field “book and release” offense processing by law enforcement, mobile border control / immigration processing, and rapid mobile identification.

Previously reported, Crossmatch was awarded “Complementary Solution Provider of the Year” by Temenos Group for for its contribution to Temenos business involving biometric authentication and is based on ease of use, level of integration and product revenue contribution.
