New HID Global Fingerprint Reader Uses Multispectral Imaging for Accurate Biometrics
HID’s multispectral imaging technology captures images from both the surface and sub-surface of the skin, allowing fingerprints to be read in challenging environmental conditions.
AUSTIN, Texas — HID Global has released a new fingerprint reader that utilizes the company’s globally-patented multispectral imaging technology to bring biometric authentication to the door.
The iCLASS SE RB25F fingerprint reader is said to increase image capture performance and fingerprint matching in under a second, 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,” says Stephen Carney, vice president of product marketing, physical access control solutions with 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, according to the company.
The reader includes built-in optical tamper protection and supports the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP), as well as HID’s Seos technology for multi-layered authentication between the reader and credentials.
Security administrators can download the complimentary HID Biometric Manager, an on-premise software tool for configuring and managing one or many iCLASS SE RB25F readers. Built on a server- and browser-based client architecture, the HID Biometric Manager is well-suited for enrolling users’ fingerprints (for both 1:1 verification and 1: N identification modes), assigning access rights and conducting many other functions.
The tool can also be used to securely log all door events where the readers have been installed and to upgrade readers in the field remotely over a TCP/IP connection.
The new iCLASS SE RB25F is certified in several major geographies worldwide and available with multiple interface options for various system architectures. It can also be used with all popular industry-standard high frequency credential technologies (including HID Mobile Access Mobile IDs, Seos, iCLASS SE, iCLASS, MIFARE DESFire, MIFARE Classic).
