Biometric solutions provider Neurotechnology announced the latest versions of its Software Development Kits (SDKs) for biometric fingerprint, face, iris and voice identification and object recognition.
The company announced VeriFinger 6.5 for biometric finger print, VeriLook 5.2 for face recognition, VeriEye 2.5 for iris identification, VeriSpeak 1.1 for voice and MegaMatcher 4.3 for multi-biometric identification, as well as SentiSight 3.1 for object recognition and robotic vision applications.
In addition to these, the company also announced new embedded versions of VeriFinger, VeriLook and MegaMatcher, in addition to the launch of VeriEye Embedded for iris, VeriSpeak Embedded for voice and SentiSight Embedded object recognition technologies for use in smartphones and other mobile devices.
“Our new product line includes updates to all of our main SDKs, allowing customers to develop faster and more reliable applications,” said Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnology, in a statement.
“The new versions of our embedded SDKs can be used on Android (News - Alert) devices for development of a full-range of single or multi-modal biometrics applications and object recognition systems, from simple smartphone applications to large governmental projects,” Malickas added.
All embedded SDKs are designed for the Java development environment and support the Android operating system.
The new fingerprint identification SDK, VeriFinger 6.5 SDK, now offers 20 percent decrease in the false rejection rate (FRR) when set at the same false acceptance rate (FAR). VeriLook 5.2 SDK for facial identification includes special enhancements for recognition of faces that are rotated out-of-plane.
VeriEye 2.5 SDK for iris identification features a faster algorithm and a new template extraction option. VeriSpeak 1.1 SDK includes the addition of new pause detection technology. It can also recognize both unique pass-phrases for each user as well as fixed phrases.
MegaMatcher 4.3 SDK for large-scale biometric solutions can be used to develop multi-biometric solutions using any combination of fingerprint, face, iris and voice identification technologies for added accuracy and reliability. SentiSight 3.1 SDK for object recognition and computer vision has been provided with an algorithm that is twice as fast as the previous version. It can also track multiple objects at the same time.
Recently Angel, which sells Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and related call center products, said voice biometrics can be used to improve customer service and close more businesses. Voice biometrics finds application in self-service password resetting, secure access to remote systems requiring authorization and tracking employees.
