HID Global launches new fingerprint reader
iCLASS SE RB25F dramatically increases image capture performance and fingerprint matching in under a second
HID Global has announced its new fingerprint reader that merges credential excellence with HID’s globally-patented multispectral imaging technology to fuel broad adoption of biometrics at the door.
According to the company, iCLASS SE RB25F fingerprint reader dramatically increases image capture performance and fingerprint matching in under a second, significantly reducing delays that were previously symptomatic of biometric solutions.
“Driven by increasing threats to an organization’s security, biometric authentication is one of the fastest growing segments in the access control market,” said Stephen Carney, vice president of product marketing, physical access control solutions, HID Global. “The powerful combination of HID’s highly reliable Lumidigm multispectral technology and the reader’s robust construction with IP67 and anti-vandal IK09 ratings now enables customers to deploy fingerprint authentication across a wide range of real-life environments. The reader is also field-configurable over a network, and is designed to ease migration from traditional and existing fingerprint reader solutions.”
HID’s multispectral imaging technology captures images from both the surface and sub-surface of the skin so that all types of fingerprints, from people of any age, can be read quickly and reliably in cold, dry, dirty, wet and other challenging environmental conditions. This, coupled with trusted liveness detection for spoof prevention, enables the iCLASS SE RB25F reader to provide real-time validation that fingerprints are genuine and belong to a living person who is physically present at the authentication point.
To maximise security, the reader includes built-in optical tamper protection, and it supports the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP), as well as HID’s Seos technology for multi-layered authentication between the reader and credentials.
