A single MegaMatcher Accelerator unit to manage and process up to 20 million fingerprints
Neurotechnology, a provider of biometric identification technologies, has launched MegaMatcher Accelerator, a packaged hardware and software system for one-to-many biometric fingerprint and face matching for high-volume/high-speed applications such as database duplicate searches.
According to the company, MegaMatcher Accelerator includes MegaMatcher multi-biometric identification technology and HP ProLiant DL server hardware that work together to provide one of the fastest matching engines. The system matches biometric information that may include up to 10 fingerprint templates and a face template for each individual.
The company claims that with fingerprint matching speeds exceeding 10 million fingerprints per second, one MegaMatcher Accelerator can replace 1,000 MegaMatcher 2.1 server nodes for fingerprint matching and 25 nodes when fingerprint and face multi-biometrics are used. A single MegaMatcher Accelerator unit can manage and process up to 20 million fingerprints. If additional speed or capacity is required, multiple MegaMatcher Accelerator units can be combined.
Algimantas Malickas, CEO of Neurotechnology, said: Matching speed is a critical factor for many large-scale biometric applications, such as duplicate searches in voter databases and border control, among others. MegaMatcher Accelerator provides a radical increase in matching speed, enabling implementation of applications that were difficult or even impossible to implement before.
