High accuracy vascular recognition used in new palm vein reader.

TDSi : 15 June, 2007  (New Product)
TDSi launches vascular recognition based access control product based on Fujitsu PalmSecure palm vein sensor for high levels of recognition accuracy.
Access control specialist, TDSi, has launched PalmGarde, one of the first physical access control products to incorporate Fujitsu's PalmSecure sensor.

Palm vein recognition technology was developed by Fujitsu to help combat the increasing incidence of financial fraud and forgery, plaguing many financial institutions in Japan, at a cost to the economy of millions of Yen.

Unlike fingerprints, which change during childhood, the palm vein pattern is established in the womb and is constant throughout a person's life. Working on near-infrared light, PalmGarde reads and processes the palm vein pattern, which, as it lies underneath the epidermis, can't be distorted by damage to the skin, age, or the wearing of gloves.

With ever increasing demands for accurate biometric identification tools, PalmGarde delivers extraordinarily high standards of accuracy. Boasting a false rejection rate of 0.01% and a false acceptance rate of less than 0.00008%, the PalmSecure sensor offers a highly secure technology, with considerable advantages over other biometric technologies.

Commenting on the launch, TDSi's Managing Director, John Davies, said: "We have worked closely with Fujitsu to develop this truly exceptional product. PalmGarde offers a great combination of improved security, high performance, reduced cost of operation and user friendly performance. Combined with our eXguard Pro software, it represents a great solution for building owners, security professionals and installers".

PalmGarde delivers true contact-free biometric technology, offering a hygienic, user-friendly solution appropriate for any public area; particularly those within a healthcare environment. The user simply places the palm of their hand over the reader, which in turn scans and attempts to match it against the template database

Fully scaleable, PalmGarde has an external reader input, making it capable of being added to an existing access control system without the need to replace equipment; alternatively, the reader may be used in a single door application, operating as a fully independent, stand alone unit. Supporting all of the main industry standard reader interfaces, the reader may be connected to the majority of access control units, making it truly universal.
