Cross Match Technologies Introduces Innovative Full Hand Print Live Scan System

Tuesday 18 May 2004 00:03 CET | News

Cross Match Technologies has released a unique new full hand print scanner based on direct requirements from the California law enforcement community.

Cross Match has developed a system with features specifically suggested by forensic examiners and identification officers. With a unique curved platen design, the ID 2500 can capture a full hand print in one image, including the difficult to capture palm pocket without having to prepare or manipulate the subject’s hand. Bundled with Cross Match’s 10-print ID 1000 live scan system for rolled fingerprints, the ID 2500 provides law enforcement with everything they need for criminal booking and positive identification. Full hand and palm prints are increasingly being captured in the booking process for use in law enforcement criminal database matching and for scrutiny by forensic examiners. The ID 2500s speed, ease of use, and extra minutiae provided, offer high volume booking officers and forensic examiners the best of both worlds - speed and detail. Palm prints make up 30% of all crime scene prints that are lifted by law enforcement. For example, major profile cases such as the Polly Klaas and the Silva/Lisk kidnapping and murder cases were both solved with portions of palm prints. States such as California, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Connecticut are adding palm print automated identification systems for electronic matching of prints to a database for quicker and more accurate criminal identification. Many other states are quickly following the trend. Full hand scanners will also provide critical technology to the federal government including the national security and defense communities, by enabling the government to easily capture as much biometric information as possible from employees, government contractors and subcontractors working on national security and public safety initiatives. The ID 2500 is the first full hand scanner that meets and exceeds customer requirements making it a clear winner to law enforcement officers. Meets Customer Requirements: - FBI IQS Appendix F Certified - National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) image standards - Meets 500 and 1000 Pixels Per Inch requirements - Captures the elusive “pocket” of the palm - Captures the full hand in one image with no interstitching of multiple images - Flat fingerprints captured in the full hand print image are used for sequence checking of the fingerprints rolled on the ID 1000 - Automatic adjustable platen height console for ease of image capture - Quality Images regardless of pigment, marks or stains Exceeds Requirements: - Captures more image area – greater than 5.5 x 8 NIST standard - 90 square inches total - Large image area enables for the first time the capture of the minutiae area between the thumb and index finger - Heated platen eliminates a halo effect that can generate from a warm hand on a cold platen While offering the most sophisticated features, the ID 2500 is still extremely easy to use. Operators simply place a subjects hand on the platen without having to prepare the hand with oil or water or move the hand on the platen at a specific system dictated speed. The ID 2500 includes a console, Dell desk top computer, ID 1000 (existing Cross Match ID 1000 customers can use their current ID 1000), 17-inch flat screen monitor and several options including a touch screen monitor, digital signature pad, mug shot camera kit, mug shot printer and FBI certified card printer.
