Lumidigm has a new sensor that will make biometric authentication simpler and more affordable for business applications. The new Mariner fingerprint sensors can be used in health care, transportation, logistics, passenger identification, construction and heavy industry, to give an idea of the widespread relevance of this product.
Phil Scarfo, Lumidigm senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing said that with Mariner, they were able to bring the field-proven Lumidigm Advantage to more users in more markets. He added that being disappointed with conventional fingerprint sensors to date, serious business customers have been looking for a biometric sensor that doesn't require them to compromise durability, reliability or convenience.
The multispectral imaging from the Mariner sensor can read fingerprints on the surface even if it is hot, cold, dirty, wet and/or dry. This has not been possible for biometric sensors until now. The traditional sensors have always needed a clean contact surface and ideal temperature conditions to function normally.
With Mariner, Phil Scarfo said, they were offering extremely fast, durable and reliable business-class biometric readers for desktop user authentication and other Windows PC-based applications, even special mission-critical healthcare applications.
As a result the new Mariner fingerprint sensor brings the Lumidigm Advantage to a wide range of business opportunities which include securing data access to multi-user workstations, electronic medical records, enterprise single sign on, point of sale applications, time and attendance data collection, quality control and standards compliance, laboratory equipment sign-on, data network access and other Windows operating system based applications in which organizations need to get a fast fingerprint read on the first try.
