Cross Match Technologies Inc.launched its next generation Guardian scanners at the Biometrics Consortium Conference. With a revolutionary new user interface, enhanced optical design, and more flexible capture modes, the new Guardian and Guardian IP deliver a completely self-guided ten-print fingerprint capture process that represents a new level of adaptability to real world use.
Both scanners incorporate FlexFlat and FlexRoll capture modes, providing a more user-friendly way to capture both flat and rolled fingers anywhere on the platen. In addition, a new optical design allows for high quality image capture regardless of whether a subject’s hands are wet or dry. The Guardian’s new intelligent user interface and screen intuitively prompt a user through all necessary steps by indicating finger sequence, placement, and pressure; ensuring the rapid and accurate capture of high quality records every time.
The Guardian IP connects directly to the network, eliminating the need for a local computer and operating system. Deployed with a server-based application, this approachprovides a secure, scalable, and cost effective approach to biometric implementations.
The original Guardian line set the standard for ten-print scanning in 2007 when the Guardian FW was selected for the U.S. VISIT program. It continues to play a significant role in support of numerous national security missions and programs within the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, and State, as well as various foreign governments.
