Italian headquartered law enforcement and ID management biometrics provider Green Bit will be present at next week’s Biometrics Consortium Conference (BCC) 2013 in Tampa, Florida, where, while manning booth 718, it will be unveiling a new palm livescan.
Dubbed the MultiScan527, the newest palm image offering form Green Bit will be capable of scanning the entire hand in conformance with FBI standards. The ball of the palm, full fingers and fingertip impressions are all captured by the device that also boasts a full color touchscreen and a portable weight of 10.8 lbs.
According to both Christian Rutigliano (head of international sales) and Sergio Rainero (Green Bit COO), the most exciting feature of the MultiScan527 is going to be its price point, which was designed with the limited budgets of law enforcement organizations in mind.
“The MultiScan527 will be the first palm device to be offered at a price level which can be well compared to what was quoted for 10-print readers until recently”, said Rutigliano on the topic of pricing. “It’s already known from our DactyScan series that outstanding image quality and reliability combined with an extremely competitive pricing is feasible; adopting this philosophy to for palm devices has been difficult challenge and the MultiScan527 is the proud result”
The BCC will be following Biometrics UnPlugged: Mobliity Rules next week in Tampa. Be sure to follow @MobileIDWorld (the official handle of our new portal Mobile ID World) on Twitter for live up-to-the minute reporting on both conferences.
