Integrated Biometrics Alliance Offers Contactless Fingerprint Offerings Development Agreement with Imaging Technology Leader Sciometrics Expands IB’s Portfolio of Award-Winning FBI-Certified Scanners with Contactless Fingerprint Biometric Devices
SPARTANBURG, South Carolina, July 7, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Integrated biometrics (IB), the global leader in FBI-certified mobile biometric fingerprint scanners, today announced the signing of a strategic development alliance with Sciometrics, LLC to provide advanced contactless technology that enables developers to transforming smartphones into high-resolution biometric devices. The alliance reflects IB’s commitment to providing leadership in fingerprint collection technology to the industry and is the culmination of years of joint efforts to develop such technology.
The announcement expands IB’s reach as a global leader in FBI-certified fingerprint scanners in the evolving field of high-resolution contactless fingerprint identity. IB and Sciometrics will work collaboratively with industry experts to help define the standards for contactless platforms offering interoperability with existing databases created with traditional scanners. Slap shotMT The Contactless Biometrics API is the first of many contactless offerings IB will bring to market as a result of the collaborative alliance with Sciometrics.
“As a leader in the FBI Certified Biometric Scanner space, IB sees contactless fingerprint identity as an emerging and exciting modality,” said Steve Thiès, CEO of Integrated Biometrics. “We believe that our collaboration with Sciometrics with its world-class algorithms will provide our customers around the world with the ability to expand their identity capabilities using their fleets of smartphones. ”
Already, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a best practice recommendation (NIST Special Publication 500-334) on the use of mobile device biometrics to create contactless biometric records to search in existing fingerprint databases. This document was created to encourage the evaluation of this emerging technology which will lead to the establishment of an FBI standard for the quality requirements of contactless search-only fingerprint images.
“I can’t think of a better partner than IB to deliver global reach and collaborative expertise in the fingerprint market. The wide use of IB products and the prestige of the IB brand will open doors around the world, ”said Marc Walch, president of Sciometrics. “This strategic development agreement demonstrates IB’s commitment to adding the best contactless identity to its portfolio and supporting its customers with legacy contact databases as technology advances.
“As a company, we are constantly striving to innovate and seek to help solve our customers’ problems,” said David Gerulski, executive vice president of integrated biometrics. “This contactless technology will increase the ability of our customers to effectively verify their identity in the field via a smartphone. The myriad of use cases for the military, law enforcement, border protection, financial services, and humanitarian efforts underscore the strong need for this standard globally. This technology will be a game changer. “
Sciometry solves complex problems associated with pattern matching and video analysis by extracting identifiable signals from extremely noisy environments. The company’s underlying approaches have been applied to many successful programs involving the detection of the presence of people, objects, and actions of interest in videos, images, and documents against very backgrounds. cluttered. Sciometrics uses a combination of deep learning and statistical techniques to provide solutions to its clients in the defense and intelligence community. Sciometrics pioneered patented methods for enabling smartphones to capture fingerprints that can be automatically compared to existing databases, with the ability to give a biometric sensor to anyone with a smartphone.
