World’s first combined fingerprint and passport scanner

DERMALOG at Cartes 2015

Paris, France, 16th November 2015 – DERMALOG Identification Systems presents several of its latest innovations in biometric identification at the Cartes exhibition in Paris. The event is dedicated to secure solutions for identification, payment, and mobility. Again DERMALOG leads the way when it comes to new biometric solutions in automated border control and national registration. 

The new VF1 device captures passports or ID cards in color with highest resolution and quality. Infrared images and ultraviolet images of the documents are captured at the same time for evaluation of all security features of the document. An additional RFID reader inside the device gets the data from modern ePassports or electronic cards in parallel. As such the DERMALOG VF1 is a top of the range full color passport scanner, confirming to international standers, with latest technology. Additionally a module for automatic detection of fake passports is available.

In addition, the new VF1 captures one, two or four fingerprints with 500 dpi resolution and 256 grey levels on the same single scanner plate. The VF1 confirms to all international fingerprint standards for AFIS and biometric identification. It captures up to 4 fingerprints in one scan. This new type of device has also got all features and functions of a tenprint scanner and of a so called 4-4-2 scanner. Ten plain fingerprints as well as rolled fingerprints can also be taken by the VF1. Additionally the new scanner has got the most advanced technology for detection of fake fingerprints, in order to prevent from any fraud or misuse.

DERMALOG´s CEO, Gunther Mull explains: “The VF1 scanner is our latest innovation to enable modern eGates and Kiosks using only one single scanner for passports and fingerprints. It´s capability to also capture signatures, barcodes and flight tickets, as well as arrival/departure documents on the same scanning area makes the VF1 even more versatile.” The new VF1 is also ideal for national registration counters and for many other security applications with a single device on the desk for different types of document scans and for biometric capturing.

The VF1 is “Made in Germany” and was invented by DERMALOG in 2015. It was awarded the “Industriepreis 2015” for it´s innovative concept.
