Innovatrics launches solution to increase probability of fingerprint matches
Innovatrics has launched the new version of Latent Editor, which simplifies the editing and enhancement of latent fingerprint images to increase the probability of a match in an AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification System).
The intuitive and easy-to-use Latent Editor was developed based on feedback from Innovatrics’ AFIS customers, and enables users to edit and improve latent fingerprint records in a secure, independent and interoperable environment.
The smart separation tool enables users to easily separate overlapping fingerprints by tagging the relevant ridges, while the solution will remove the overlapping print.
The tool also features automatic minutiae and region of interest detection and editing, which reduces the amount of time and effort it takes users to manually detect these aspects.
Once the image is improved, it can be sent directly to the AFIS to be searched against a database.
Additionally, Latent Editor is available as a stand-alone application and can be used with any AFIS.
“Our AFIS customers told us that they wanted a lightweight, easy-to-use tool for editing latent prints,” said Matúš Kapusta, delivery and and solutions director at Innovatrics. “Based on this feedback, we’ve developed this powerful, intuitive and interoperable Latent Editor. Customers no longer have to edit latent images using a complicated editing tool, then export those images to their AFIS; with latent editor, they can optimize the image in a couple of minutes and send the image to AFIS in one click.”
Earlier this year, Innovatrics released a mobile version of its facial recognition technology, IFace 3.0 Mobile, which is designed to be seamlessly integrated into mobile applications to include facial biometrics as a second factor authentication feature.
