Lightweight scanner for ten print or palm scanning.

L-1 Identity Solutions : 11 April, 2008  (New Product)
The TouchPrint 4800 provides high definition scanning for a variety of print presentation methods including palm prints and ten finger print collection in a small, lightweight package.
L-1 Identity Solutions has announced availability of the TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 4800 Live Scan product. The FBI Appendix F certified live scan is the smallest, lightweight device for capturing complete ten print and palm images including fingerprint rolls, slaps, thumbs, palms and writers' edges.
Expert forensic examiners estimate that nearly one third of all latent prints obtained from actual crime scenes come from parts of the hand other than the fingertips. A recent push for sex offender legislation, particularly within the United States, has mandated the capture of offenders' hand or palm prints in addition to fingerprints alone. For example, the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 requires that a set of fingerprints and palm prints of the sex offender be taken as part of the registry requirements.

Developed specifically to address the need to capture tenprint and palm images in a smaller, more mobile scanner, the TouchPrint ED 4800 is the only live scan capable of multi-capture on a patent-pending single, field-replaceable platen. It has the smallest cubic footprint and is the lightest weight palm scanner available today. The device features advanced technologies such as L-1's proprietary Moisture Discriminating Optics to ignore the effects of moisture blobs from sweaty prints and deliver higher quality images. An IP65 ingress protection rated enclosure prevents damage from dust, debris and water, making it resilient to effects of harsh conditions. The TouchPrint ED 4800 is flexible and can be used as a standalone unit, or incorporated into cabinets, kiosks or booking stations.

"Law enforcement agencies across the country have been demanding a live scan device that will help them fulfill requirements mandated by new legislation to upgrade and include tenprint and palm images, while also protecting their current technology investments," said Robert LaPenta, Chairman, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions. "Our goal is to continue to develop innovative and cost effective solutions that respond to evolving customer needs and objectives."
