Cross Match Releases Mobile Essentials SDK for Android, Blackberry smartphones


Cross Match Technologies, Inc., has announced the release of two new versions of its Mobile Essentials SDK that integrates its Verifier Mw wireless handheld fingerprint scanner with Android and Blackberry smartphones. Both versions enable capture and identification applications that operate over 3G networks.

Cross Match’s Verifier line of fingerprint scanners are ideally suited for mobile rapid ID implementations. According to the company, Mobile Essentials has enabled the use of the Verifier Mw on Windows platforms, which has made rapid ID possible for patrol car laptops.

Founded in 1996, Cross Match is a leading provider of high-quality multi-modal biometric identity management systems, applications and services with more than 10,000 customers around the world in a variety of vertical markets.

The new versions of the widely-used SDK provide agencies utilizing cellular phone-based identification applications the ability to leverage the Verifier Mw’s full potential.

Designed to be used in one hand, the Verifier Mw is the first FBI certified FAP 30 mobile fingerprint scanner on the market. Since this device relies on a Bluetooth connection, it works with all current versions of Android and Blackberry smartphones.

“Cross Match just made it easier than ever to integrate forensic quality fingerprint capture into mobile applications,” Scott Howard, vice president of operations for AFIX Tracker, a law enforcement AFIS provider and Cross Match partner said. “We look forward to offering this capability to our customers.”
