Crossmatch Press Release

Crossmatch® Previews NOMAD™ 30 Pocket Fingerprint Reader at connect:ID Conference and Expo

Crossmatch®, a globally-recognized leader in biometric identity management and secure authentication solutions, today announced it will preview the NOMAD™ 30 Pocket Reader during the connect:ID 2018 Exhibition and Conference in Washington, DC next week.

The NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader is a FAP 30 PIV single fingerprint reader that incorporates the latest in fingerprinting technology. Like all NOMAD readers, the 30 Pocket Reader utilizes a space-saving capacitive thin-film transistor (TFT) sensor that provides superior outdoor and bright ambient light performance and is not impacted by tattooed or stained fingers.

Nomad 30 biometric mobile fingerprinting solutionIdeal for public safety mobile identification applications as well as the growing government and financial services verification markets, the NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader connects to a range of mobile computing devices including cellphones, tablets and laptops. It is easily shared or swapped as shifts change or use cases demand. And unlike fingerprint sled devices, the 30 Pocket Reader won’t be obsolete when a mobile phone model changes.

“The NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader represents in-field identification and verification flexibility that is astonishingly compact, adaptable and affordable,” noted John Hinmon, vice president of global marketing for Crossmatch. “Bundled with our ArcID Mobile application on a smart device, the 30 Pocket Reader offers reliable PIV level identity assurance for law enforcement, government and banking applications.”

The NOMAD 30 Pocket Reader is 95mm by 45mm by 8.5mm, making it the thinnest and possibly most compact portable PIV reader on the market. Distinctive blue landing lights offer intuitive user prompts and haptic feedback signals the operator of a successful print capture.

The reader can be previewed at the Crossmatch booth (201) during exhibition hours. Orders for engineering samples are currently being accepted.  Production is scheduled for mid-Summer 2018.
