|Lumidigm can now provide local support for its biometric solutions to European customers
Lumidigm, part of HID Global, recently announced that it is expanding the distribution channel in Europe of its high performing multispectral imaging biometric sensors with the appointment of MTRIX as an authorised distributor of Lumidigm products. MTRIX is based in northern Germany and will concentrate on continental Europe, primarily in the enterprise market with a focus on healthcare and finance.
"This is good news for our growing customer base in Europe as now we can provide hands-on local support for our biometric solutions," says Greg Sarrail, Lumidigm Vice President of Solutions Business Development. "MTRIX provides the right combination of industry expertise with a focus on solving issues related to identity and network authentication. Their direct interaction with the integration channel and endeavours to exceed end-user requirements fit perfectly with Lumidigm's high-quality value proposition."
Multispectral imaging is a sophisticated technology specifically developed by Lumidigm to overcome the fingerprint capture problems found with conventional imaging systems. This more-effective technology is based on the use of multiple spectrums of light and advanced optical techniques to extract unique fingerprint characteristics from both the surface and subsurface of the skin. That subsurface capability is important because the fingerprint ridges seen on the surface of the finger have their foundation beneath the surface of the skin, in the capillary beds and other sub-dermal structures.
