Integrated Biometrics Unveils New Columbo Desktop FAP PIV 30 Scanner

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Integrated Biometrics (IntegratedBiometrics.com), developer of the world’s smallest and lightest FBI-compliant fingerprint scanners, is proud to unveil its Columbo Desktop FAP PIV 30 Scanner. Sales are already underway for this brand new product with applications for military, law enforcement, airport/border security, finance and health care.

“The Columbo Desktop has the largest area platen for a single finger scanner that the FBI recognizes,” said Steve Thies, CEO, adding, “This particular size scanner is rare in the marketplace and is designed to perform at the highest level with tablets, smartphones and PCs.”

According to the National Institute of Standards & Technology IR 7950 report published in March 2014, testing done in collaboration with the FBI showed that FAP 30 scanners like the Columbo Desktop outperformed other single finger scanners sizes tested (FAP 10 and FAP 20) in both false negative and false positive performance.

“Early sales are already underway with customers looking to use the Columbo Desktop for enrollment and verification activities for banking, law enforcement, and other commercial and government uses worldwide,” Thies explained.

The product’s minimal size and weight makes it well-suited for mobile applications, enhanced with a full featured SDK for effective integration into applications requiring certified quality images. Designed for durability, this scanner is able to withstand tough operating environments with minimal maintenance while providing accurate high-resolution fingerprint images in indirect or direct sunlight.

The Columbo Desktop is the latest in a series of products developed by Integrated Biometrics to provide for the increasing mobilization of fixed station solutions. Using a durable, patented light emitting sensor (LES) film, the company’s line of world-class fingerprint sensors are superior for mobile environments than traditional silicon or optical sensors, working on dry or moist fingers and resisting abrasion, while clocking-in at up to 90-95% smaller and lighter than optical scanners of similar capabilities.

Integrated Biometrics provides enrollment and verification fingerprint sensors to hardware integrators, software and database providers, and contractors serving government agencies and commercial markets worldwide to address issues related to homeland security, border patrol, law enforcement, background checks, military and defense, social services, national ID programs and elections.
