Labcal Technologies will be incorporating UPEK’s TouchChip Fingerprint Sensor (on display at CTST) into its Be.U Mobile handheld reader, developed for use in employee ID verification, e-passports, and law enforcement. The reader can be used with existing AFIS systems and performs 1:1 matching with an ID document, contact or contactless and 1:N matching by storing the fingerprint templates and the credentials in the reader or on a server.
UPEK TouchChip Fingerprint Sensor in Labcal Be.U Mobile SMC-800 to be demoed at CTST
BERKELEY, Calif.–UPEK, Inc., the leading brand of fingerprint authentication security solutions, announced that Labcal Technologies, Inc. is integrating UPEK’s TouchChip TCS1 Fingerprint Sensor on display at CTST in its Be.U Mobile SMC-800 ruggedized handheld reader for ID verification. Labcal’s Be.U Mobile has been developed to satisfy the current and future requirements for projects related to employee ID (transportation, TWIC, CAC), travel documents (e-Passports), and law enforcement. Labcal’s Be.U Mobile will be demoed at CardTechSecureTech in San Francisco on May 2-4 (Moscone Center, Labcal booth #429).
Labcal continues to expand its line of authentication solutions with UPEK fingerprint sensors including the SmartPrint Mobile Checker handheld unit for ID card verification, the SmartPrint Desktop Enroller for issuing ID cards, Sentry SAC-2500 and Sentry SAC-3000 physical access control devices, and the TruBlue USB Fingerprint Reader for user identification and ID authentication.
Labcal’s new Be.U Mobile rugged reader is algorithm agnostic and can be used with existing AFIS systems. The Be.U Mobile performs 1:1 matching with an ID document, contact or contactless and 1:N matching by storing the fingerprint templates and the credentials in the reader or on a server, and communicates wirelessly with a server via Wi-Fi, GSM or CDMA.
“We have deployed many units of the previous version of Labcal’s handheld biometric reader for ID verification and we were very satisfied with the effectiveness of the UPEK fingerprint sensors,” said Rahman Soltan, Managing Director, Synergy Promenade Sdn. Bhd. “We just started to deploy the new version, the Be.U Mobile, which features the same sensor. The reliability, size and resolution of this sensor are ensuring high performance; it is a key feature for us.”
“We chose the UPEK TouchChip fingerprint sensor for the Be.U Mobile because the reliability, size and resolution of the sensor enable us to deliver high quality mobile authentication that our customers and partners demand,” said Hugues Gervais, VP of Sales and Marketing of Labcal and Product Manager for the Be.U Mobile. “Labcal has been deploying products with UPEK fingerprint sensors in our mobile readers for ID card verification as well as physical and logical access devices, and we continue to leverage UPEK’s proven silicon fingerprint sensor technology which is ideal for mobile authentication applications.”
“We are pleased that Labcal continues to incorporate our TouchChip fingerprint sensors across their product line,” stated Greg Goelz, VP of Marketing at UPEK. “Labcal latest handheld reader for ID verification promises to enable a growing number of ID card initiatives being rolled out by governments and enterprises globally.”
