MaxID, a rugged mobile computer company, announced the integration of Lumidigm's fingerprint reader into the iDLMax, a handheld identity management device.
The iDLMax is the first commercially-available mobile computing device to incorporate Lumidigm's superior multispectral imaging technology.
The Lumidigm Venus fingerprint reader embodies a significant breakthrough in optical imaging technology. Based on patented multispectral biometrics, the robust Lumidigm sensor is uniquely capable of delivering high-quality images in the most difficult and demanding physical environments. This characteristic is particularly important in mobile applications because handheld devices are regularly used in conditions where other biometric technologies fail.
"Lumidigm's multispectral imaging has clear advantages in many areas of fingerprint capture and validation," said Stephen Grist, CEO of MaxID. "Integrating Lumidigm's reader in one of our handhelds is important to us. We're extremely happy with the results and are pleased to be able to add this technology to our extensive biometric handheld portfolio."
MaxID integrated Lumidigm's Venus fingerprint reader into the iDLMax, a multimodal, rugged mobile computer that offers a complete set of features for virtually any identity management challenge including contact card, contactless card, barcode, optical fingerprint, and magnetic swipe readers with a digital camera, GPS, and comprehensive wireless communications. The iDLMax is a complete, integrated mobile solution for all badging and identity management requirements. When users need to read fingerprints, TWIC, CAC, PIV, or FRAC cards, or driver's licenses, as well as use the other on-board biometric functions to verify identity, the iDLMax connected handheld device does it all in a light, compact, easy-to-use form factor.
"MaxID integrated Lumidigm fingerprint technology into a very effective mobile design," said Phil Scarfo, Lumidigm's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "This rugged new product from MaxID expands the market opportunities for Lumidigm fingerprint readers and addresses a critical and growing need in the marketplace," Scarfo added.
Both MaxID and Lumidigm will be exhibiting at ISC West, the international security conference and exhibition, in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 1-3, 2009. Please visit MaxID at booth #9149 or Lumidigm at booth #41010 at the show for more information.
