MINNEAPOLIS, 21 June 2006. Identix Incorporated, a provider of multi-biometric solutions, has introduced the TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 4100 Slap & Roll Live Scan, designed to fall within federally mandated form factor requirements for live scan fingerprint image scanning devices.
The product delivers enhanced definition capabilities in a more compact unit -- a 6-inch x 6-inch footprint that weighs less than five pounds. The unit provides greaterl image detail and clarity when compared to standard definition systems. The product also incorporates a number of features to enhance usability and performance for dual criminal and civil applications.
Units are expected to be available for commercial shipment in September 2006, with demonstration units available by end of July.
Many federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, Department of State, Department of Defense Biometrics Fusion Center, National Institute of Justice, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have set forth minimum form factor requirements for new live scan image capture devices. The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 4100 is one of industry's smallest footprints for such a device.
The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 4100 provides significantly higher pixel density and contrast, resulting in images that have far more fine ridge detail than dictated by the Appendix F requirements.
