ALBUQUERQUE, NM /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Lumidigm Inc., the worldwide patent holder of multispectral imaging for use in biometrics, announced a strategic partnership with Keico Hightech Inc., a high-quality security terminal provider. This agreement provides Keico with Lumidigm's award-winning fingerprint sensors for their access control and time and attendance terminals. In turn, Lumidigm gains a worldwide distribution channel and a partner committed to producing the highest quality biometric terminals.
Lumidigm fingerprint sensors capture accurate and high-quality images on anyone, anytime, anywhere. Lumidigm's multispectral imaging technology simultaneously reads the surface and subsurface to capture clear, clean images every time—even when surface features are absent or hard to distinguish. Lumidigm sensors enhance the throughput and accuracy of any biometric application, thereby eliminating management hassles and end-user frustration.
"We have shown Lumidigm's multispectral imaging sensors to our customers at shows in Korea, Japan, and the United Kingdom over the last month," said Moon Sung Hwang, President and CEO of Keico. "The quality and reliability of the data collected using a Lumidigm sensor is a vast improvement over anything else in the marketplace. We are pleased to be incorporating Lumidigm's extraordinary technology into our products."
"Keico and Lumidigm are bringing together state-of-the-art fingerprint sensors and the highest quality biometric terminals to create the best solution for our customers," said Matthew James, Managing Director of UK Biometrics and long-term partner. "We look forward to integrating this solution for our customers."
"We are convinced Keico will quickly create a competitive set of products around our biometric sensors," said Bob Harbour, President and CEO of Lumidigm. "We are eager to see our joint products installed around the world. The customer demand for these completed terminals that work with real people in real world locations has been tremendous."
