IDEMIA launched a highly secure, frictionless access control biometric device with MorphoWaveTM several years ago, successfully answering market demand in the industry. The touchless 3D fingerprint technology has quickly become the benchmark for major organizations around the globe, as customers understand the importance and value of positive biometric identification combined with high throughput and convenience. The release of MorphoWaveTM Compact last year has reinforced this leading position. In line with IDEMIA’s strategy to enable frictionless access everywhere, this true game changer for the industry has been rapidly adopted across a wide range of verticals.
With over 40 years’ experience as the world leader in biometrics, IDEMIA has successfully merged the benefits of AI with its unrivalled expertise in fundamental biometric principles. This ongoing investment in R&D has led to the next major breakthrough in fingerprint identification, pushing the boundaries even further with the enhanced MorphoWaveTM Compact, now powered by AI.
IDEMIA’s new AI-based embedded biometric engine delivers an 85% increase in matching speed, which translates to a 25% increase in throughput of over 50 people per minute per access point. The algorithms further increase matching accuracy, enable higher capacity (up to 100,000 users for one-to-many identification) and bring particular benefit when dealing with the most challenging fingerprints.
In summary, the best just got even better…
This latest update can be leveraged by both new and existing MorphoWaveTM Compact customers – yet another example of why IDEMIA is not only the market leader, but also the trusted long-term partner in biometric security solutions.
MorphoWaveTM Compact powered by AI, will be launched at GSX (Global Security Exchange) 8th to 12th September in Chicago. With a simple Wave of the hand, visitors will be able to experience the ultimate benchmark in frictionless access.
