MegaMatcher 4.2 Multi-biometric and MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 SDKs Released Today
Fingerprint, Iris and Face
Biometrics Can Be Used in Any Combination, Including Tri-Modal
Verification on Smart Card
Vilnius, Lithuania – November 14, 2011 Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification technologies, today announced two major releases: MegaMatcher 4.2 andMegaMatcher On Card 3.0 Software Development Kits (SDK). The MegaMatcher 4.2 SDK includes the updated VeriFinger 6.4 fingerprint identification engine, VeriLook 5.1 facial identification engine and VeriEye 2.4 iris identification engine – all of which are designed to be used individually or in any combination for the development of fast, reliable biometric solutions. Palmprint and VeriSpeak voiceprint identification capabilities are also included. MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 SDK features fingerprint, facial and new iris on-card matching engines based on the high-precision MegaMatcher identification algorithms. With MegaMatcher OnCard, tri-modal verification on smart cards is now possible, providing the highest degree of accuracy and flexibility available for smart card biometric solutions.
"MegaMatcher 4.2 SDK includes significant improvements in software functionality and fingerprint, face and iris algorithms," said Dr. Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnology. "The new version of MegaMatcher On Card extends support for different Java and native smart card platforms and, in addition to fingerprint and face modalities, introduces iris and tri-modal off-line verification capabilities. MegaMatcher continues to be one of our most important products, and we believe these improvements and additional features provide our integrators with even greater flexibility and the capability to develop and implement more advanced applications," Malickas added.
The new MegaMatcher 4.2 includes a number of enhancements over previous versions:
With the new MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 SDK, the fingerprint, face and iris biometric algorithms in MegaMatcher 4.2 have been optimized to run within the restricted computational capabilities of smart card microprocessors. The introduction of integrated, on-card iris biometrics provides a third, trustworthy modality that offers higher off-line authentication reliability for card owners as well as providing more flexibility when one of the biometric modalities may not be available.
MegaMatcher On Card also provides more flexibility in the choice of smart cards. Through partnerships with different card vendors, Neurotechnology's on-card solution is now available on a wider range of integrated circuit card (ICC) platforms running either Java or proprietary native OS within different microcontrollers.
MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 features and capabilities:
Because of its unified API, MegaMatcher On Card can be easily integrated with systems that are based on any other Neurotechnology SDK, including VeriFinger, VeriLook, VeriEye or multi-biometric MegaMatcher deployments.
MegaMatcher technology is used in a wide variety of biometric solutions worldwide for national-scale projects, including border control, passport and visa documentation, election control, criminal investigations, duplicate searches in large-scale databases and a range of other government and commercial applications. The MegaMatcher fingerprint recognition algorithm is NIST MINEX-compliant for use in US Government Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program fingerprint recognition applications and it supports most biometric industry standards.
MegaMatcher 4.2 and
MegaMatcher On Card 3.0 are available through Neurotechnology or
from distributors worldwide.
