Aware's CaptureSuite(TM) family of software kits applies advanced image processing technology to the difficult challenge of rapidly collecting ten
BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aware, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWRE), a global provider of imaging and biometrics software, today announced the introduction of CaptureSuite, a family of software development kits used to perform rapid autocapture and compliance assurance of ten fingerprints, and subsequent formatting for submission to a watchlist database. Capturing ten fingerprints quickly while maintaining sufficient image quality is crucial to this emerging requirement and poses a difficult image processing challenge. CaptureSuite was developed to address this challenge, improving the efficiency of the tenprint capture process while ensuring that images are compliant, properly identified, and of sufficient quality. CaptureSuite software components work in conjunction with fingerprint live scan hardware devices, performing several key functions including autocapture, segmentation, hand detection, quality analysis, and standard-compliant formatting. The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs has begun to deploy CaptureSuite to its consulate offices as part of its BioVisa program. The BioVisa enrollment process has recently been modified to require collection of ten fingerprints from visa applicants; it had previously required collection of just two fingerprints.
"Aware's CaptureSuite represents a groundbreaking advancement of fingerprint autocapture technology that enables users to capture ten high- quality, compliant fingerprints rapidly and reliably," commented David Benini, director of product marketing. "We're pleased to have the opportunity to apply our deep image processing expertise to this increasingly important requirement."
