Suprema Receives FBI Certification for Dual Fingerprint Live Scanner.

Seoul, May 29, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema, Inc. (KQ: 094840), a leading global supplier of fingerprint recognition technology and systems, announced today that the company's RealScan-D dual fingerprint live scanner tested in full compliance and received certification from the FederalBureau of Investigation (FBI) for the agency's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) Image Quality Specification (IQS) Appendix F standards.

FBI IQS standards for live-scanning systems are mandatory for the purpose of FBI and most countries' government procurements. But within the dual/single fingerprint live scanner sector, the majority of products on the market satisfy FBIs PIV standards which is relatively lighter than IQS Appendix F. With a launch of RealScan-D,Suprema became the second company among live-scanner manufacturers to release FBI IQS appendix F certified dual-finger live scanner.

Suprema RealScan-D is a portable dual fingerprint capturing live scanning device using the companys leading optical image processing technology. The device has extra wide platen for easier capturing of dual fingerprints and rolled fingerprints, and it has significant cost advantage over 10-prints live scanners. RealScan-D is designed for high-speed image capturing for single finger flats, rolls and two-finger flats and transfers image data to PC via high speed USB2.0 connection.

"RealScan-D has been developed to fulfill growing needs from e-passport and national identification (NID) applications whichgenerally requires 2 or 4 fingerprints for registration. Especially for the countries implementing e-passport enabled border control and autogates (unattended immigration check), the demand for dual fingerprint live scanner will grow," commented James Lee, CEO of Suprema. Currently, a large number of countries have implemented e-passport based immigration clearance and autogates in their major ports of entry and countries like Malaysia, UAE, Hong Kong and Holland are developing autogate systemsfor their major airports.

The company now has extensive product line-up of FBI certified live scanners from palm-print, ten fingerprints and dual fingerprints and also provide range of e-passport readers to support its e-passport processing & NID solutions.

About the IAFIS IQS

The IAFIS IQS specifies the data acquisition standards for the fingerprint portion of the virtual fingerprint card, such as modulation transfer function (MTF) and signal-to-noise ratio. The MTF measures how much of the fingerprint data can be acquired; reflects the quality of the optics, the scanner detectors and the analog to digital converters. The IQS also specifies quality thresholds for display devices (printers and CRTS) for the fingerprint data. IQSstandards for printers and other display devices are mandatory for the purposes of FBI procurements.
