Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification technologies, has released the latest version of its multi-biometric software and hardware solution, MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0, with enhanced features and improvements.
MegaMatcher is Neurotechnology’s automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) designed for large-scale projects that require high-volume, high-speed fingerprint and/or iris identification using very large databases.
In the latest version of MegaMatcher Accelerator, Neurotechnology has incorporated even higher accuracy, flexibility and versatility into the solution for large-scale identification.
The MegaMatcher and MegaMatcher Accelerator technologies are used in a wide variety of biometric solutions for national-scale projects, including voter registration, election control, passport and visa documentation, border control, criminal investigations and duplicate searches in large-scale government and commercial databases.
The enhancements to the MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 will provide users with a higher level of control, versatility, speed and accuracy compared to earlier versions.
Available in both Extended and Standard versions, the MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 features an improved fingerprint algorithm that is tens to hundreds of times faster than previous versions. The updated algorithm enhances accuracy for all kinds of fingerprints, including flat, slap, rolled or paper-scan.
Apart from offering greater versatility, the MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 also facilitates accuracy or speed with eight different speed levels and provides more control and flexibility with the ability to specify all engine parameters, including speed level, for a single task.
Capable of checking identification results with other biometric data from any Neurotechnology-supported modality, MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 can perform a full database search for each match, thereby eliminating potential false rejections from incorrect classifications.
Antonello Mincone, MegaMatcher Accelerator project lead for Neurotechnology, said in a statement, "When heterogeneous fingerprint data are used in the same system, as in the case of an application for document issuance that includes both civil and criminal databases coming from different fingerprint capturing sources, MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 allows the system developer to configure the balance of speed and accuracy for each different identification request. This facilitates optimal tuning of the overall system for the highest level of performance and reliability."
The standard version of MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 is a fast, cost-effective, PC-based solution designed for customers with smaller biometric applications. It is compatible with PC featuring i7 processor, 16 GB RAM (News - Alert), 1.5TB HDD. It can manage databases of up to five million irises or four million fingerprints and can perform matching of up to 35 million fingerprints or 70 million irises per second.
The extended version of MegaMatcher Accelerator 5.0 is ideal for applications that require extremely fast matching with a large volume of data. It is compatible with HP ProLiant DL360p G8 server with 128 GB RAM and can manage a database of up to 40 million fingerprints and perform 1:N matching at a speed of 100 million fingerprints per second.
