Cross Match introduces new biometric scanners

Tampa, Fla. 17 Sept. 2012. Cross Match Technologies, Inc., a global provider of biometric identity solutions, will be launching its next generation Guardian scanners at the Biometrics Consortium Conference this week. With a new user interface, enhanced optical design, and more flexible capture modes, the new Guardian and Guardian IP deliver a completely self-guided ten-print fingerprint capture process that represents a new level of adaptability to real world use.

These scanners enable users to move through a self-guided print capture process without the need to dry or moisten fingers to obtain high quality images.

Both scanners incorporate FlexFlat and FlexRoll capture modes, providing a way to capture both flat and rolled fingers anywhere on the platen. In addition, a new optical design allows for high quality image capture regardless of whether a subject's hands are wet or dry. The Guardian's new user interface and screen prompt a user through all necessary steps by indicating finger sequence, placement, and pressure; ensuring the rapid and accurate capture of records.

The Guardian IP connects directly to the network, eliminating the need for a local computer and operating system.  Deployed with a server-based application, this approach provides a secure, scalable, and cost effective approach to biometric implementations.

The original Guardian line was used in several programs, with the Guardian FW having been selected for the U.S. VISIT program. The products continues to play a role in support of numerous national security missions and programs within the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and State, as well as several foreign governments.
