VeriFinger 5.0 SDK for biometric fingerprint recognition comes to Mac OS X
The VeriFinger 5.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) is the first major fingerprint identification SDK to add support for the Mac OS X platform.
VeriFinger 5.0 provides both 1:1 verification and 1:many matching modes with significantly enhanced fingerprint recognition reliability and fast identification speeds of up to 40,000 fingerprints per second. The VeriFinger algorithm is currently used by more than 1000 biometric system developers, integrators and hardware manufacturers in more than 60 countries worldwide, and it can be integrated with any scanner, database or user interface, providing easy integration with existing security systems.
The VeriFinger fingerprint identification algorithm has been proven to be one of the fastest and most reliable among competing identification algorithms in some of the industry’s most rigorous competitions, including the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST)’s Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation (FpVTE) and the International Fingerprint Verification Competitions (FVC). Designed for use in a wide range of capacities, including access control, computer security, time/attendance control and banking applications among others, VeriFinger 5.0 SDK enables the rapid development and integration of biometric applications by giving integrators complete control over the SDK data input and output.
VeriFinger 5.0 provides a number of additional advantages over VeriFinger 4.2, including improved automatic fingerprint quality detection, so if a user’s fingerprint is not scanned properly when it is first collected during enrollment, it prompts the user to repeat the scan, thus improving overall database quality. Internal testing shows significant enhancements in reliability over the previous version. Depending on the scanner used, when set for the same False Acceptance Rate (FAR), the VeriFinger 5.0 False Rejection Rate (FRR) decreased by up to seven times over the same settings in VeriFinger 4.2. VeriFinger 5.0 also offers full compatibility with Neurotechnologija’s FingerCell embedded solution algorithm, giving customers more options to develop mixed embedded/PC systems where fingerprints can be enrolled on either the embedded or PC side.
