Palm print recognition added to MegaMatcher

Neurotechnology : 01 December, 2009  (New Product)
With the addition of Palm print recognition to existing face, fingerprint and iris biometric technologies, MegaMatcher from Neurotechnology provides full multi-biometric applications

Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification technologies, has released two new upgrades in the company's core product line: VeriLook 4.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) for facial recognition and MegaMatcher 3.1 SDK for large-scale multi-biometric and automated fingerprint identification systems (AFIS). Expanded capabilities in VeriLook 4.0 provide enhanced facial recognition reliability across a wider range of facial positions. MegaMatcher 3.1 incorporates the new VeriLook 4.0 face identification algorithm and includes a new palmprint identification add-on, enabling developers and system integrators to design highly accurate multi-biometric systems using any combination of face, iris, fingerprint or palm recognition.

"The increased reliability and face position tolerance in VeriLook 4.0 should be very important for our customers," said Dr Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnology. "The enhancements to the VeriLook algorithm will also be useful for MegaMatcher customers who utilise facial recognition. And the addition of support for palmprint identification will allow wider use of MegaMatcher in criminalistics."

The new VeriLook 4.0 provides a number of significant enhancements over the previous version, VeriLook 3.3, including:

* Increased recognition accuracy, i.e. decreased False Rejection Rate, by 10-50% at the same False Acceptance Rate level with respect to the VeriLook 3.3 algorithm.
* Recognition of faces which are rotated in-plane (rolled/tilted left or right) at any angle (VeriLook 3.3 could detect only faces with +/-15 degrees roll angle deviation).
* Increased tolerance to face yaw and pitch declination, meaning VeriLook 4.0 can recognize faces that are looking side-to-side or tilted forward or back (in many cases it can recognize faces declined up to 25 degrees).
* Improved facial template generalization, enabling a more reliable template to be generated from a set of previously created templates.
* VeriLook 4.0 templates are fully compatible with VeriLook 3.3.


With the addition of palmprint technology in MegaMatcher 3.1, it is now possible to use multiple configurations of fingerprint, face, iris and palmprint identification to produce accurate 1:N (1 to many) matching results. The MegaMatcher fingerprint recognition algorithm has received full NIST MINEX certification for use in US Government Personal Identity Verification program fingerprint recognition applications and it supports BioAPI 2.0 and most other biometric industry standards.

The Software Development Kits for VeriLook 4.0 and MegaMatcher 3.1, as well as other award-winning biometric technologies from Neurotechnology (including VeriFinger 6.1 and VeriEye 2.1), are available with highly competitive licensing options through Neurotechnology or from distributors worldwide. 30-day trial versions with full functionality are also available for download.
