Jenetric and Laxton form strategic partnership to address multi-modal biometric tablet demand
The compact LiveTouch Quattro fingerprint scanner from Jenetric is included in the Chameleon 8 Slap+, which is being unveiled at the upcoming Trustech conference, giving it FBI-certified fingerprint acquisition for both ID flats and tenprint biometric capture. The FAP 60 scanner has also been BSI-certified for use by the German government, the only compact tenprint scanner with the certification, according to Jenetric. The scanner is suitable for performing 1:N identification based only on ID flats, and allows four fingers to be captured flat without the need to rotate the scanner or the risk of missing a finger.
The scanner’s low weight and power consumption further set it apart from its competition, according to the announcement.
“This necessary and exciting addition to the Chameleon 8 range is perfectly suited for the European Entry Exit System and its mobile border control and verification applications,” says Nick Perkins, president of EMEA for Laxton Group.
German Federal Police began using the LiveTouch Quattro as part of its European Entry Exit System controls earlier this year.
