Fingerprint WSQ License
The Fingerprint WSQ component allows to integrate support for
WSQ (Wavelet Scalar Quantization) image format.
The WSQ format allows to compress a fingerprint image up to
WSQ compression process is "lossy", meaning that the
reconstructed image is not equal to the original (some information is
However, the WSQ algorithm was specially designed to minimize
the loss of fingerprint information therefore the reconstructed image is
as close as possible to the original.
Neurotechnology's implementation of WSQ 3.1 fingerprint image compression was certified by the FBI
as compliant with the accuracy requirements in the Wavelet Scalar
Quantization (WSQ) Gray-Scale Fingerprint Image Compression
Specification, Version 3.1.
The component is designed for applications that run on hardware with at least Intel Core 2 Q9400 (2.67 GHz) processor.
It can be used from C/C++, C# and Java applications on all supported platforms.
.NET wrappers of Windows libraries are provided for .NET developers.
Licenses for the Fingerprint WSQ component can be purchased
anytime by VeriFinger 7.0 Extended SDK and MegaMatcher 5.0 SDK
