MeReal Biometrics smartcard features fingerprint tech from Precise and FPC


Hong Kong’s MeReal Biometrics introduced its latest V2 smartcard at the opening of Groupe Partouche’s Pleinair Casino in the South of France.

The biometric smartcard features a smaller fingerprint sensor, enrolment in less than 10 seconds, NFC compatibility and identity matching via the sensor within one second during everyday use.

The MeReal Biometrics smartcard will initially be used by employees to grant them access to private back-of-house and privileged areas, as well as provide record-keeping for time and attendance. The Group hopes to add access and payments applications for employees and for the one million VIP players who currently carry a “Fairplayer” loyalty card.

“This is a momentous day personally. … it’s rewarding that my initial idea of a smartcard that can identify all our players entering our casinos, hotels, and online games has finally come to fruition,” commented Mr. Patrick Partouche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Groupe Partouche and Chairman of MeReal Biometrics.

The V2 smartcard, which will be used in contact and contactless mode, features Fingerprint Cards’ low power consumption FPC1320 sensor and Precise Biometrics’ algorithm solution for fingerprint recognition in smart cards, Precise BioMatch Embedded.
