Multispectral imaging technology
Lumidigm developed its multispectral imaging technology in-house. It permits even more reliable and detail-rich feature extraction than conventional imaging methods.
Multispectral sensors are also especially well-suited for difficult conditions – that is, they operate in cases in which other technologies fail. These include dirt, moisture and bright ambient light, for example.
Multispectral imaging technology captures features on the skin surface as well as beneath it. Their improved feature extraction makes the Lumidigm sensors the most secure and convenient solution for identity authentication.
So far, challenges caused by the significant differences in everyday conditions have afflicted the biometric industry, preventing widespread introduction of the technology. These problems have now been solved by multispectral imaging. Whether in large projects, studies, pilot tests or field tests, Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging has proven to be the best technology in the biometric industry.
Lumidigm sensors are also a step ahead of conventional sensors in their “liveness” detection. Multispectral imaging technology is less susceptible to attacks with fraudulent fingerprints, because they are quickly detected based on the characteristic features of the deeper skin layers.
The ability to capture information from both the skin surface and deeper layers is a decisive competitive advantage for Lumidigm. Lumidigm was founded based on its non-invasive glucose monitoring technology which then found very promising new applications in biometrics. Today, this technology is used in areas that extend far beyond biometrics.
Lumidigm Inc. is a global leader as a producer of authentication solutions. Its headquarters are in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging technology, innovative software and biometric fingerprint sensors enable convenient, secure and reliable identification of persons and products. The focus of development work is to achieve reliable functionality under everyday conditions. That is how Lumidigm fulfills challenging requirements for authentication in markets such as finance, health care, entertainment and government agencies. Lumidigm’s advanced products are also well-suited for industrial, trade and transport applications. Lumidigm is part of HID Global, a brand of the ASSA ABLOY Group.
