Idemia launches Morphowave Compact frictionless biometric reader

May 31, 2018

IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, announces the launch of MorphoWave Compact, the newest addition to its range of products for frictionless biometric / fingerprint access control. This masterpiece of engineering relies on IDEMIA’s patented, touchless 3D fingerprint technology: it delivers the field-proven performance of the award-wining MorphoWave Tower in a stylish and compact reader, designed for wall-mounted access control and time & attendance applications.

MorphoWave Compact is 86% smaller than MorphoWave Tower, while retaining the same large scanning volume. It acquires four fingers in 3D for maximum accuracy, with one pass of the hand over the sensor. The ergonomic touchless operation delivers an unmatched combination of security, convenience and throughput. MorphoWave Compact’s reduced size comes with a very competitive cost of ownership, an IP65 rating and a rich feature set to ensure that users can now experience frictionless access everywhere… with a simple wave of the hand.

As the global leader in fingerprint reader technology for more than four decades, IDEMIA has served the world’s largest users of biometrics. Over the past ten years, IDEMIA has combined tremendous R&D efforts with large-scale, high volume deployments of touchless fingerprint technology, to ensure that frictionless biometric access is a proven reality today.

"The overwhelming success of MorphoWave Tower in major companies – in areas such as corporate headquarters, large manufacturing sites, prestigious universities, and some of the largest banks and financial institutions – not only proves the technology delivers on its promise, but also confirms the potential and hunger to use it everywhere" , said Mark Yadegar, Sales Director, "MorphoWave Compact has been specifically designed with this in mind, to allow customers to leverage the technology beyond the lobby, at every door".

MorphoWave™ Compact by IDEMIA was awarded 1st place in the Security Industry Association, New Product Showcase (SIA NPS), User Authentication, Identification, Credentialing & Management category at ISC West 2018 in Las Vegas.
