BALTIMORE, MD. & RĪGA, LATVIA — U.S. and international television news media recently aired stories on biometric technology featuring the Watson Mini FBI Appendix F certified multi-fingerprint scanner. A CBS This Morning piece, “CLEAR lets flyers skip airport lines with iris scans, fingerprints” showcased Integrated Biometrics strategic partner CLEAR and its groundbreaking network of biometric security lanes at airports allowing travelers to use their fingerprint and iris identification technology to expedite processing. The CBS report showed individuals using CLEAR stations, including the Watson Mini fingerprint biometrics solution.
Internationally, Latvian television aired a news item on the country’s largest hospital, Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital, using the Watson Mini as part of a biometric solution to identify patients in emergency situations. Emergency response personnel bringing individuals into the hospital are using the Watson Mini to confirm an individual’s identity, whether they are conscious or unconscious, speeding up processing and helping to alleviate crowding in reception areas and cut down on wait times.
Airport security and healthcare are just some of the many uses of the Watson Mini, either as a standalone product or an integrated part of a partner solution. The small, lightweight scanner uses Integrated Biometrics’ patented light emitting sensor (LES) technology instead of a traditional glass prism, meaning fast, high-quality images without the need to clean between finger rolls.
