Fingerprint Readers Use Lumidigm Multispectral Imaging Sensors

Free Amsterdam University (VU), one among the prominent colleges in Europe, is utilizing the Venus Series of multispectral imaging sensors from Lumidigm in fingerprint readers to give entry access to 8,000 staff, students and faculty for its numerous recreation facilities located across Amsterdam.

The changeover to fingerprint scanning technology was implemented at the same time when the school  switched to a TopTix SRO software platform. Rotterdam-based biometric integrator EasySecure International has suggested the school about the Lumidigm solution.

The Lumidigm solution is utilizing numerous sophisticated polarization technologies and wavelengths of light to get exclusive fingerprint attributes from both subsurface and surface of the skin. This offers more comprehensive, more reliable and more interfere resistant than competitive biometrics. The multispectral imaging can read callous, dry or wet, dirty and fry fingerprints.

Free Amsterdam University utilizes scanners with four desk systems to register endorsed users and has seven gates and doors with scanners to enter its sports complexes. On a particular day, the system registers on an average more than 1800 scans across all entries.
