Development of Multi-Modal Finger Vein and Fingerprint Device
From Fujitsu’s Palm Secure and Sony’s biometric finger scanner to Toppan’s Biometric and Dynamic Authentication contact IC, here comes yet another new approach in the ever competitive credit and personal authentication market where by Sagem Sécurité and Hitachi will unveil the first ever multi-modal finger vein and fingerprint device at Biometrics 2009 in London, Finger VP. The newly developed device is combining Hitachi’s Finger Vein Imaging (VeinID) technology capable of detecting the pattern of blood vessels under the skin plus Sagem’s fingerprint identification technology by the name of Morpho. This is the first device so far with the capability of simultaneously capturing and processing two sets of biometric data. The new device can be used either for one-to-one or one-to-many verification.
The newly developed device Finger VP has been designed to be used either standalone device or it can be integrated into a various type of end-user devices such as access control terminals, ATM, mobile device for identity checks as well as secure payment.
