Suprema bringing machine learning-based live fingerprint detection to ID4Africa
Suprema ID today announced that it will unveil fingerprint scanners featuring machine learning-based Live Fingerprint Detection (LFD) technology at next week’s ID4Africa 2018 exhibition.
RealScan-G10 and RealScan-D, the company’s best-selling fingerprint scanners, now come equipped with the world’s first machine learning based LFD technology to provide new levels of anti-spoof security. The new technology was developed to overcome limitations in live scanning by applying machine learning techniques to analyze and categorize image patterns by the characteristics of faked fingerprint materials including clay, rubber, silicon, paper and film. Suprema saya that with this new technology, RealScan Series live scanners now eliminate fraud by fake fingerprinting or ‘spoofing’.
“New machine learning based LFD clearly reflects our market focus and commitment to innovation in ID solutions,” explained Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID. “The technology is designed to meet the stringent security requirements of unmanned security systems including automatic border control and kiosk scanning systems. We are experiencing increasing demand for anti-spoofing technology on our live scanning devices.”
Biometric Update will serve as the Official Journalist for ID4Africa 2018, taking place April 24 to 26 in Abuja, Nigeria.
Suprema launches XPass D2 series RF card readers
The global biometrics and security provider also announced today the launch of XPass D2 series RF card readers. The XPass card readers have been redesigned to lend extended capability, design flexibility and cost-effectiveness to Suprema’s enterprise access control solution, CoreStation.
XPass D2 readers come in 3 models. The XPD2-MDB is mullion-type, while the XPD2-GDB and XPD2-GKDB are gangbox-sized form factor, and GKDB models come with 3 x 4 keypads to support PIN authentication. XPass D2 readers feature outdoor-ready housings with range-leading IP67 weather-proof and IK08 vandal-proof certifications. Operating temperatures range from -30 to 65 degrees C, -22 to 149 degrees F.
“With the addition of XPass D2 readers supporting CoreStation, Suprema’s ACU-based access control solution, we provide new enterprise-grade features and added flexibility in system design,” said Young S. Moon, CEO at Suprema. “CoreStation is a clear alternative for an enterprise requiring higher levels of biometric security and centralized access control system topology.”
