Dell integrates Next Biometrics sensors into new notebooks and tablets

 

Next Biometrics Group ASA announced Dell Inc. has integrated its fingerprint sensors into a range of its 2016 notebook and tablet products.

The move makes Dell the first top-tier notebook and tablet manufacturer to implement larger fingerprint sensors into its devices for secure, convenient and consistently accurate fingerprint readings.

Enabled by its patented Next Active Thermal principle, which is based on heat transfer, Next Biometrics offers high quality area fingerprint sensors at a fraction of the prices of its competitors.

In addition to notebooks and tablets, Next fingerprint sensors are targeted for implementation in a range of other product formats including smartcards, smartphones, doors, payment terminals, remote controls, USB-tokens, and key fobs.

An extensive comparative test executed by the University of Madrid, a leader in biometric research, recently documented Next sensor performance quality and that size is key to fingerprint sensor system performance,” said Tore Etholm-Idsoe, CEO of Next. “Suppliers targeting to offer security and convenience for close to 100% of a population can simply not compromise on sensor size. Nor, can they offer the old swipe sensor format.

“Next sensors are up to 70% less expensive than comparable-sized competitor fingerprint sensors, which allows manufacturers to offer their customers consistent security and convenience at mass market compatible prices.”

Previously reported, Next Biometrics recently drew an investment of 120 million Norwegian crowns (US$14.78 million) from Greenbridge Partners, a firm founded by Swedish investors Melker Schorling and Ola Rollen,
