Multibiometric Scanners and Development Kits

Are you considering developing your own multimodal biometric solution? If so, then let Fulcrum provide you with the hardware and software tools necessary to quickly incorporate biometric identification systems into your existing applications or to develop your own standalone biometric applications. Each form or modality of biometric identification has its own specific strengths and weaknesses. By combining multiple forms of identification (such as fingerprint scanners and face recognition), multibiometric solutions provide exceptional accuracy without the need for costly hardware. As an example, a PC with a built in webcam and a USB fingerprint scanner can run a highly sophisticated multibiometric identification or verification solution.

The principal component required to develop any biometric identification system is the identification/verification algorithm - which is included as part of a software development kit (SDK). This is the logic that allows biometric scans to be compared against existing profiles to determine if there is a positive match. When considering an identification algorithm some key criteria to evaluate are matching speed versus matching accuracy. Based upon the number of identification profiles that will be evaluated, the accuracy latitude of the application, and the performance expectations of the users, Fulcrum can help you identify the best SDK to meet your development requirements. Our most popular multibiometric SDK - which offers an excellent balance of price, performance, and accuracy - is MegaMatcher Extended SDK by Neurotechnology.You may find both of the MegaMatcher SDK's here:

MegaMatcher Standard SDK - For development of small multibiometric applications
MegaMatcher Extended SDK - For development of very large scale multibiometric applicaitons

While some SDK’s are designed to work only with their own proprietary hardware, most of our SDK’s, like MegaMatcher, are designed to work with a wide variety of biometric devices. These devices include both standalone and embedded sensors that are designed to operate under a variety of environmental conditions. If you are looking for a highly reliable, desktop fingerprint scanner, our most popular model is the Futronic FS88 PIV.   This same scanner is also available for a customized embedded applications as the Futronic FS88 OEM. If your solution requires identification in harsh, industrial environments, a scanner such as the CrossMatch Verifier 300 LC is an excellent choice. No matter the environment or the application, Fulcrum has a wide selection of fingerprint scanners to meet your specific requirements.

If you are looking for multibiometric scanners/sensors we have several options.  The IrisID TD100 provides high quality dual iris + ICAO compliant face capture in one single device.  We also offer the VistaFA2 face/iris camera which captures single iris + face images.

And, our offering does not end at the checkout process. Our team is dedicated to providing our clients the service and support they need to realize their biometric identification objectives. Whether you need advice on which SDK will best suite your application or you have a unique environment that requires specialized biometric acquisition hardware, Fulcrum has the experience, expertise, and products to get your solution up and running quickly.
