M2SYS Technology announces the release of M2-FuseID™ – a hybrid biometric identification device powered by finger vein technology from Hitachi
Fused biometric identification device simultaneously captures both fingerprint and finger vein images with the single touch of a finger
Atlanta, GA (October 16, 2013) – M2SYS Technology, global innovators in biometric identification management products, released details today on M2SYS Technology’s latest product — a hybrid, fused biometric scanner that combines fingerprint, and finger vein identification technology provided by Hitachi Europe Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd (TSE:6501). Ideal for the biometric data capture, identification, and verification of civil ID, patient identification, banking, visitor management, and other projects requiring dual-factor authentication, the new M2-FuseID™ device is a compact and versatile unit, designed and manufactured in the U.S.
Incorporating biometric identification technology that combines two separate sensors into a single unit, the innovative M2-FuseID™ is the only fused device that can perform both one-to-many (1:N) and one-to-one (1:1) matching for both fingerprint and finger vein templates in a single environment. Characterized by its compact design and versatility, the device is available with M2SYS’ Hybrid Biometric matching systems which allow customers to perform one-to-many matching of millions of fingerprint and finger vein templates in seconds.
“The dynamics of biometric identification projects around the world necessitate ongoing innovation in hardware design that delivers greater accuracy and speed, especially for deployments that cover large databases consisting of millions of end users,” said Mizan Rahman, founder and CEO of M2SYS Technology. “We worked closely with our partners at Hitachi Europe, Ltd. to design and develop this unique fused fingerprint and finger vein reader to meet the growing demand of fast, reliable results in diverse matching environments.”
“Well suited to virtually any PC-based deployment environment, the M2-FuseID™ biometric scanner with fused fingerprint and finger vein offers ultra-precise, FBI-compliant 500 DPI fingerprint image resolution combined with a high-level encrypted data transfer across the USB to ensure information is safe and secure,” commented Ravi Ahluwalia, Deputy General Manager, Information Systems Group, Hitachi Europe Ltd. “The ability to simultaneously capture two biometric characteristics, instantly match them against a stored template database comprised of millions of records, and receive results within seconds will help ensure customers are able to effectively use this device and achieve the results they expect.”
