  • Uses multispectral technology to capture additional information from below the surface of the skin
  • Captures clear and clean images from
    • Fingerprints with worn out ridges due to manual labor, age, burns, etc
    • Dirty, wet, or grimy fingers
  • Capable storing onboard template storage and matching functionality for search (1:N) and verification (1:1) functions with pass/fail result.

The Multispectral Imaging Solution

Lumidigm has developed a multispectral imager that is able to collect additional information from below the surface of the skin. Unlike traditional technology, multispectral imaging technology is not dependent on the quality or authenticity of the fingerprint ridges presented. The Lumidigm sensor can look beyond surface ridges to verify their authenticity and enhance the identifying image.

If a finger with worn ridges presses the platen, the Lumidigm sensor can read the unique unaffected fingerprint under the skin and enhance the image. Similarly, if there is water or “normal” city grime obscuring the surface ridges, or if the finger isn't fully touching the sensor, environmentally robust multispectral imaging technology can enhance the incomplete surface ridge information with data from below the surface of the skin.

Spoof Detection

The Lumidigm sensor’s spoof detection ability is unique Multispectral imaging technology can detect a fraudulent fingerprint (a “spoof”) easily by measuring the subsurface data (or lack of subsurface data) against known characteristics of living skin. It can even compare subsurface data to surface data to make sure that they are the same.

Thus, multispectral imaging technology is a revolutionary access control system that is vastly superior to conventional fingerprint technologies. Currently deployed systems cannot obtain adequate fingerprints from up to 16% of the population; Lumidigm sensors can reduce that rate to nearly zero

Hassle-free standalone authentication

The Lumidigm Mercury™ M301 is a fully integrated desktop solution that brings the Lumidigm Advantage™ to applications where computing resources are limited.

The Mercury solution supports several modes of operation. This self-contained intelligent device performs all biometric functions and processing inside the sensor and provides onboard template storage for both search and verification functions. It performs image processing, image output, feature extraction, biometric template generation, 1:1 matching or verification, 1:N matching or identification, and a pass/fail result.

Device installation and operation are straightforward, making the Mercury solution easy to use. Because of the highly integrated design and advanced architecture, Mercury data capture is incredibly accurate. In most cases a simple tap of the finger is sufficient to securely authenticate a user and ensure biometric precision
