Crossmatch announced that its German partner and technology integrator Hecosys will provide Crossmatch livescan devices for the Polizei Niedersachsen, which is the State Police Department of Lower Saxony in Germany.
All livescan booking stations will be equipped with the latest Crossmatch L Scan 500 palm scanners, allowing personnel to capture high quality fingerprint and palm print images.
“The Polizei Niedersachsen has had great success with Crossmatch solutions over the past 10 years, so we are happy to continue our relationship and provide our valued customer with the latest L Scan palm scanners,” said Benjamin Helfmann, managing director at Hecosys. “The new scanners will provide the police agencies with an improved level of performance.”
While the Polizei Niedersachsen currently uses Crossmatch livescan devices during the booking process, Hecosys will improve the criminal booking system by providing the new Crossmatch L Scan 500 palm scanners that incorporate high speed USB3 connectivity and the latest livescan technology.
The new units can also be upgraded in the field to ramp up the image resolution to 1,000 pixels-per-inch, providing a greater level of detail that facilitates higher automated match rates and ensures authorities will be able to seamlessly shift into any future requirements.
“As an industry leader in biometric solutions, Crossmatch works with police departments worldwide to modernize their criminal livescan systems to adapt to changing realities and threats,” said Eduardo Parodi, vice president of international government sales at Crossmatch. “Government agencies know they can depend on the reliability, performance and image quality of our solutions in critical use applications, such as law enforcement, refugee management and border control screening.”
Previously reported, Crossmatch recently introduced what it calls “the next step in secure enterprise authentication”, Composite Authentication.
