Lumenera's(R) High-Performance Industrial Camera Earns GSA Approval as a Biometric Facial Capture Solution for FIPS 201 Compliant Credentialing
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 --
Lumenera Corporation, www.lumenera.com, a leading manufacturer of high performance digital cameras and custom imaging solutions, is pleased to announce that its Lu375 USB 2.0 camera together with Aware's PreFace™ SDK has been listed by the GSA as a product approved for use in FIPS 201-compliant PIV credentialing systems. The solution can now be used by federal agencies in the U.S. Government for high-performance facial image capture as part of their identity cards issuance systems.
The Lu375C is a 3.1 megapixel color camera designed for use in a variety of industrial and security applications requiring high resolution at a modest cost. Uncompressed images from live streaming video and still image captures are provided across a USB 2.0 digital interface, delivering outstanding image quality and value for processing electronic credentials used for logical and physical access control systems. Aware's PreFace is an SDK that automatically captures, analyzes and processes biometric facial images in order to maximize their quality and ensure compliance with FIPS 201.
Lumenera's camera SDK allowed quick and easy integration within days. The available set of API functions, documentation and sample code are simple to understand and make integration fast and stress-free. The camera is durable and well-designed for credentialing applications as compared to consumer-grade point-and-shoot and SLR cameras. Lumenera's industrial cameras are carefully designed to ensure long product availability and extended reliability unlike the rapid product obsolescence associated with consumer cameras such as the Canon PowerShot and Rebel cameras.
"Industrial cameras are well suited for biometric facial capture as compared with consumer-grade digital cameras, and the Lu375C provides image quality, durability, and ease of use for a price point that is unmatched in our industry," said Dany Longval, Director of Product Management at Lumenera Corporation.
The joint solution is available now. For information on Lumenera's megapixel digital cameras visit www.lumenera.com, and on Aware's Preface SDK go to www.aware.com/biometrics.
