Morpho (Safran) announced that its MorphoWave Desktop contactless fingerprint scanner has been certified by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for meeting the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specifications standard. The FBI certification validates that the high quality images produced by the MorphoWave Desktop are equivalent to other contact single-finger scanners, and are suitable for a full range of use cases.
The MorphoWave Desktop uses advanced imaging technologies to simultaneously acquire four fingerprints in less than one second by a simple wave of the hand. With its ergonomic bi-directional capture design, the MorphoWave Desktop can capture fingerprint images for the left or right hand without the need to change device settings or add another scanner.
Recipient of the Security Industry Association’s 2015 Best New Product award, as well as the IFSEC and FIREX Access Control Product of the Year, MorphoWave is the first fingerprint scanner of this type in commercial use.
“Achieving FBI PIV certification is another significant milestone for the advancement of our contactless fingerprinting technology, confirming its high quality imaging and compatibility with security systems already deployed worldwide,” said Morpho CEO Anne Bouverot. “This certification further demonstrates that contactless fingerprinting is no longer a speculative technology — it is a reliable choice for managing entry, exit, and access to valuable resources.”
