What is biometrics?
Biometrics is the technology of measuring and analysing biological data. In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyse human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, voice or facial patterns and hand measurements. Through these unique qualities, biometrics can be used as a form of personal authentication.
Perhaps the most popular form of biometric technology is fingerprint scanning. Capturing multiple reference points of the fingerprint through the biometric scanner, an algorithm is then used to convert this image into a code which effectively becomes a digital form of you. This is stored on a database for comparison which grants authentication into the secured area.
Why ievo® fingerprint recognition?
Uniquely, the ievo® biometric sensor scans multiple images of the fingerprint - from the top layer and beneath (sub-dermal) layer of the skin, using a powerful technology called multi-spectral imaging. This produces a high quality fingerprint image which after being converted into a digital code by the algorithm, allows the fingerprint to be scanned even with types of residue present on the skin. ievo® biometric fingerprint readers are therefore the most reliable on the market and have become known for their quality and unrivalled technology.
