NEXT Biometrics technology selected for new payment and identity card
NEXT Biometrics ISO-compliant, large flexible fingerprint sensor will be used in a new payment and identity card from First Biometrics.
In a statement announcing the deal, Charles Gomez, CEO of First Biometrics, explained that while the smartcard is suited for a range of industries, they will initially focus on the hotel and casino industry where “multi-level authentication and client protection is of utmost importance”.
NEXT CEO Ritu Favre added, “With proven manufacture-ability, reliability and security, NEXT’s sensor is a perfect solution in this smartcard application and a vital component for First Biometrics.”
In an interview with Biometric Update earlier this year, Favre discussed how having achieved the production capacity in partnership with Innolux, NEXT is ready to play a central role in the biometric smartcard market.
