TST BiRD touchless fingerprint sensor with Live Finger Detection (LFD)
The unique "touchless" fingerprint capture takes place over a large area facilitated by an ergonomically designed finger guide. The integrated camera generates a high definition picture without deformation of the finger shape, allowing for a wide demographic population sample to be scanned successfully. The templates are generated and then matched by the VeriFinger 4.2 algorithm to get the best results with a high performance.
The "touchless" technology where the finger does not actually contact the scanning surface eliminates latent fingerprints and sensitivity to abrasions or contamination caused by any direct contact. Integrated live finger detection significantly reduces the risk of fake fingers and other system misuse. High image quality, user-friendly self-trigger operation and an optional explosion-proof casing for high-risk environments are among additional characteristics of this unique sensor. The integrated network capability (Ethernet) and driver options support quick and cost effective system integration. USB is another option.
The product is installed at the Macau Border Control.
