# Suprema’s new fingerprint algorithms certified by FBI

Suprema announced that its fingerprint image compression algorithms received the latest version of FBI WSQ (Wavelet Scalar Quantization) certification.

The certification requires highly accurate implementation in the WSQ gray-scale fingerprint image compression specification, version 3.1.

Suprema’s new fingerprint image compression algorithms have established a new standard for the exchange of fingerprint images — specifically for 8-bit, 500ppi fingerprint images — within the biometrics and law enforcement community.

The new standard was accomplished by defining a class of encoders and a decoder that can decode compressed image data from any compliant encoder.

Under the FBI WSQ certification program, agencies are able to facilitate interoperability and efficiently access FBI criminal justice information services.

“Standardization in biometrics becomes more essential for advancement and growth of the market and industry as larger scale applications are needed from them,” said Young S. Moon, vice president of Suprema. “With the current FBI certification of the WSQ algorithm, we can now provide a complete set of certified fingerprint live scan solutions including FBI approved live scanners and PIV approved fingerprint recognition algorithms.”
