|Integrated Biometrics is known for its ability to develop next wave of mobile fingerprint scanners
Global events surrounding immigration, border security, and terrorism are driving increasing interest in advanced mobile fingerprint scanner technology from Integrated Biometrics, developers of the world’s smallest, lightest, most reliable FBI-compliant fingerprint scanners.
Patented LES film technology
This interest – specifically in the unique attributes of the company’s patented light emitting sensor (LES) film – is resulting in prospective customers and international industry organisations courting Integrated Biometrics for its technological know-how and best practices in developing the next wave of mobile fingerprint scanners.
“Any company can point to increased sales, which we are seeing, but the amount of time our team is spending participating in symposia, conferences, and tradeshows all over the world is a substantive example of the industry clamoring for our leadership in building advanced biometric enrollment and verification products,” said President Mike Grimes.
According to Grimes, various members of his leadership team and technical staff are continuing to respond to requests from influential groups and solution providers for insight. He pointed to Integrated Biometrics’ fourth-quarter 2015 international activity which included:
Here in the U.S., Integrated Biometrics staff was a part of the International Security Conference (ISC) East in New York City, the Dataworks User Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the 10th Annual Homeland Security Week in Arlington, Virginia where Integrated Biometrics was recognised by the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) for its outstanding and ongoing contribution to the continued protection of the United States of America.
“The IDGA recognition was particularly satisfying and humbling because it was completely unexpected, and especially since it came in an industry space dedicated to protecting our nation,” Grimes said.
Superior fingerprint image
The majority of questions asked of Integrated Biometrics team members at international events surrounds the company’s ability to produce truly mobile certified sensors due to its patented LES film. This revolutionary technology is made up of a multilayer polymer composite containing nano-scale particles that luminesce (give off light) in the presence of an electrical field.
When a finger is placed on the film, the live skin of the individual serves to form a closed, low-level circuit that generates narrow wavelength light through the luminesce. This produces a reliable, high-resolution analogue image of the fingerprint which meets or exceeds the quality standards of the FBI, whose fingerprint standards are followed all over the world.
This results in a detailed fingerprint image vastly superior to traditional optical biometric scanning technologies which are easy to spoof and are quickly becoming obsolete.
Integrated Biometrics’ LES film is flexible, allowing for applications previously unattainable. The biometrics identification and authentication applications of LES film-based fingerprint solutions range from military and law enforcement field work to border security to secure purchases for consumer smart phones. This wide variety of potential uses is continuing to introduce the company to new market sectors and drive the development of new products.
Grimes said Integrated Biometrics is already lining-up responses to participation requests in Q1 2016 which include major international events such as Intersec in Dubai, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement summit in Washington, D.C., and ConnectID, also in the nation’s capitol, where Integrated Biometrics will be making a major product announcement.
