While flat fingers can be captured relatively easily without the need for an operator, rolled fingerprints require a trained law enforcement expert in order to achieve a consistent fingerprint image quality.
Therefore the goal of the IARPA N2N Fingerprint Grand Challenge was to improve the capture process for rolled fingerprints by eliminating the assistance from an officer.
In the N2N-fingerprint challenge 8 finalists from academia and industry tested their fingerprint devices and approaches for the ability to capture rolled fingerprints without operator assistance.
All ten rolled fingers from more than 300 candidates were captured and then analyzed and compared by experts from the FBI and latent examiners.
JENETRIC successfully demonstrated how their LIVETOUCH QUATTRO, specifically designed for simplifying the capture process with an integrated user guidance, can automate and improve the rolled capture process.
As a result, the company has been awarded for its capability not only to capture autonomously more than 90% of all fingerprints but particularity for the high matching performance of these fingerprint images compared with the same fingerprints taken from forensic experts and latent fingerprints.
Amongst all demonstrated fingerprint technologies, JENETRIC was awarded for scoring high in the matching performance with their FAP 60 scanning technology.
“We are extremely proud of the results as they confirm the advantages of a user centric design that allows non-trained users to capture forensic-quality rolled fingerprint images” explains Roberto Wolfer.
“Our user guidance simulates the ink-and-paper process and provides easy to understand instructions on the device where, when and how to roll a finger.”
”Therefore LIVETOUCH QUATTRO is most suitable for self-service applications in public applications as well as in law enforcement.“
LIVETOUCH QUATTRO combines unmatched user friendliness with high quality fingerprint images.
Whether you capture single, dual or four fingers, its integrated touch screen provides easy to understand instructions that reduce failure to enroll rates and shorten the capture process.
With its super compact design, LIVETOUCH QUATTRO integrates easily into enrollment systems in any operation environment.
LIVETOUCH QUATTRO was introduced in 2015 is FBI certified and is already used in numerous civil applications internationally.
With LIVETOUCH QUATTRO, capturing rolled fingerprints becomes most intuitive.
There is no need to look back and forth between the device and screen anymore. The on-device user guidance displays exactly where and how to roll the finger.
Just follow the line and rolled fingers will be captured with the accurate speed and quality.
Like rolling with ink-and-paper: LIVETOUCH QUATTRO allows you to fully concentrate on the rolled finger capture process, so that high quality rolled fingerprints will be achieved even under critical conditions.
Powered by USB, small, lightweight and well protected against water and dust the LIVETOUCH QUATTRO is predestined to be used in portable enrollment kits.
The integrated Kensington lock and the mounting bracket protect your equipment a most easy way.
Combined with a laptop or tablet computer, in-the-field fingerprinting has never been easier.
