New multi-biometric tablets from Aratek with face and fingerprint recognition reach official launch

The BM7550 handheld multi-factor biometric tablet from Aratek with fingerprint and face recognition has reached its formal launch, the company announced. The terminal also features a contactless NFC card reader, and is suited to time and attendance monitoring, homeland security, law enforcement, voter verification, healthcare and other applications, according to Aratek.

Aratek says the patented facial recognition algorithm powering the BM7550 has a 99.72 percent recognition rate for the LFW database, and the tablet provides a 2MP Dual HDR camera for high-quality facial image capture in all lighting conditions. The integrated optical fingerprint scanner fully complies with standards for FBI FAP20, STQC, ISO 19794-2, ANSI-378 and WSQ, and provides liveness detection to prevent fraud, the company says.

“The BM7550 squarely addresses the demands for increasingly sophisticated identification and authentication solutions with its industry-leading multi-biometric and multi-factor authentication features,” states Samuel Wu, Aratek’s vice president for the International Business Division. “By integrating facial recognition, fingerprint sensor and contactless NFC in a single solution, the BM7550 terminal gives unparalleled security, accuracy and reliability.”

USB Type-A, Micro USB (OTG), RJ45 LAN, WiFi and Bluetooth communications are supported for wired and wireless connectivity and reliable data transfer. The device comes with a removable 6,000mAh battery or an optional 10,000mAh battery to enable prolonged offsite work, and can be charged with a built-in DC charging port. A GOS chip enables device location tracking and recording.

The BM7550 was unveiled at Intersec 2020 Dubai earlier this year. The company also since launched its TruFace facial recognition product line for fixed-location applications.

“Aratek’s relentless pursuit of innovation is making possible the development of products such as the BM7550 which are addressing emergent needs in the market. Expect us to continue coming up with biometric identification and authentication solutions that really make a difference,” Wu says.
