MegaMatcher Accelerator

Solution for large-scale AFIS or multi-biometric systems

MegaMatcher Accelerator is a hardware/software solution that provides high speed, high volume biometric identification for national-scale projects.

The Extreme and Extended versions are designed to run on server hardware and perform fast biometric template matching on the server-side of a large-scale AFIS or multi-modal system. The Standard version and Development Edition are intended to be run on a common PC. MegaMatcher Accelerator software licenses are available for new and existing MegaMatcher Extended SDK customers.

Technical Specifications

Database storage capacities for a single MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 unit are:

  • 160,000,000 fingerprint records or 200,000,000 iris records or 40,000,000 face records for each MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme unit.
  • 40,000,000 fingerprint records or 50,000,000 iris records or 10,000,000 face records for each MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended unit.
  • 4,000,000 fingerprint records or 5,000,000 iris records or 1,000,000 face records for each PC that runs MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Standard or Development Edition software.

If a biometric template contains several fingerprint, face and/or iris records, the database storage capacity changes proportionally. The table below shows storage capacities for some combinations of fingerprints, faces and/or irises records. There are no limitations on the quantity of fingerprint, face or iris records in a template. Product Advisor will help to determine how many MegaMatcher Accelerators would be required for a specific project.
