The primary reason for carrying out the “ Interoperability Assessment 2019: Contactless-to-Contact Fingerprint Capture ” study was to test how well touchless systems work with legacy databases. NIST tested six sold contactless fingerprint scanning technologies by comparing how they fared with conventional touch-based fingerprint devices. The results show that contactless devices that scanned multiple fingers consistently achieved better accuracy than single finger scanning and made less “false positive” errors that incorrectly matched a person’s print with someone else’s.

MorphoWave TM is a stand-out IDEMIA-developed technology that scans and checks four fingerprints in under a second by just waiving your hand within the reader. Shown as Dev03 in the report, MorphoWave TM consistently performs better than other contactless devices in terms of matching rate, image capture sample rate, areas of overlap between probe and exemplar fingerprints, finger ridges and minutiae similarity. Further testing was conducted with both contact and contactless probes matched to the MorphoWave TM exemplar contactless fingerprints.

This testing confirms MorphoWave TM, which already underpins the currently sold MorphoWave TM Compact, works well with legacy touch fingerprint scanners and other contactless solutions alike. It also highlights that this technology enables extremely efficient contactless fingerprint capture and matching against existing contact-based fingerprint databases. This latter feature is very beneficial for some government programs, border checks and minimizing passenger lines whenever user fingerprints are already held in a database. So MorphoWave TM gives passengers a smoother and more hygienic user experience.

IDEMIA CTO Jean-Christophe Fondeur said: “The recent COVID19 pandemic has ushered in growing demand for contactless and hygienic solutions. We are delighted to see contactless fingerprint capture that we pioneered is on the cusp of matching contact-based accuracy, and of course that our MorphoWave TM technology has emerged from this NIST interoperability test as the best in the industry. Given its outstanding capacity as borne out by this NIST test, our MorphoWave TM Compact is a game changer and will seamlessly raise hygiene standards in a vast array of environments including corporate offices, stores, airports, theme parks and leisure and entertainment venues.”
