BI2 announces patent issuance for mobile biometric capture and communication system
Business Intelligence & Identification Technologies (BI2 Technologies) has announced the issuance of its patent for a mobile biometric capture and communication system.
Specifically, US Patent No. 8719584, titled “Mobile, wireless hand-held biometric capture, processing and communication system and method for biometric identification” covers a mobile biometric system , which includes a capture device, associated software and processes which enable a commercially available wireless communication device – like a smartphone – “to connect to established wireless communication networks to capture a digital image of a human biometric for transmission via a secure connection to a central server.”
“The issuance of this patent is truly a game changer,” Sean G. Mullin, president and CEO of BI2 Technologies said. “Imagine the potential uses, growth and applications as a strategic capability for virtually every industry and market where verification of identity is important.”
“This technology is completely horizontal and can become a strategic differentiator for every organization – from smartphone, tablet and radio manufacturers to network communication and third party application providers to system integrators within vertical markets and industries such as financial service, banking, transportation, construction, government, cyber security and intelligence,” Peter Y. Flynn, co-founder of BI2 said.
Reported previously, in 2012, the FBI certified BI2’s Mobile Offender Recognition and Information System as being in line with the agency’s IAFIS image quality specification.
