Partnership to reduce fingerprint recognition error rates.

UK Biometrics International : 19 July, 2007  (Company News)
UK Biometrics enters next generation of biometric fingerprint recognition with 3-way partnership involving hardware and spectral imaging.
UK Biometrics has entered into a three way partnership with long term Korean partner Keico Hightech, manufacturers of high quality security terminals and Lumidigm, the Albuquerque based worldwide patent holder of multispectral imaging for use in biometrics.

The deal will allow for the development and distribution of 'Second Generation' robust biometric readers with extremely low error rates. Lumidigm's multispectral imaging technology simultaneously reads the surface and subsurface of fingerprints to capture clear, clean images every time, even when surface features are absent or hard to distinguish.

UK Biometrics Managing Director Matthew James said;

"The combination of Keico terminals, Lumidigm imaging technology, our systems and software development capability mean we have a truly world beating product to further fuel our expansion. Lumidigm readers are in use at major American tourist attractions and have proven their ability to deal with millions of individual fingerprints; they are impervious to bad weather and can recognise a fingerprint through latex gloves or dirt. This partnership will open up new markets in hostile industrial environments, hospitals, high security and extremely high volume locations."

Lumidigm biometric readers reduce error rates to less than one percent making them suitable for high security applications. The readers are so robust they will operate in any weather conditions, can be power-hosed and even operate underwater.

Matthew James concludes;

"We are a fast expanding business and increasingly coming to be noticed on the global stage. Creating twenty jobs in the region is good news but we plan more than the creation of jobs. We want to start careers in this exciting, embryonic industry. Our plan is to make the North East of England a global hotspot in the biometric industry and this partnership will help us achieve that goal".
