Suprema RealScan-G1 Receives Final STQC Certification for India's UID Project

SEOUL, KOREA, Dec 4, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema, Inc., a global leader in biometrics and ID solutions, announced today that the company's latest 'RealScan-G1' fingerprint live scanner tested in full compliance and received final certification from the Government of India's STQC (Standardization Testing & Quality Certification) for the country's UID (Unique ID, India's next generation national ID) based fingerprint authentication demands. The STQC certification is an essential requirement for procurements of the UID project and ensures devices to satisfy API specifications presented by UIDAI. The STQC provides quality assurance services in IT and electronics through its countrywide network of laboratories. With the UID project, it is mandatory for all fingerprint scanner vendors to get STQC's final certificates on top of their existing provisional certificates which only valid for 6 months.

Smart Identity Devices Pvt.(Smart ID) Ltd, Suprema's strategic partner in India, supported Suprema's STQC certification process. Smart ID is a leading biometric company in India and one of the key players in 'UID Enrollment and authentication' projects.

Suprema's RealScan-G1 is a compact-sized portable fingerprint live scanner which provides range-leading capture speed and clear image quality by using the company's advanced optical image processing technology. Along with its recently-added STQC certification, the device has been approved by several global standards including FBI PIV-IQS, FIPS 201 and Mobile ID FAP 30 certifications. In addition, RealScan-G1 features Suprema's unique 'hybrid type' live finger detection (LFD) technology which provides effective protection from fake fingerprints.

On the hardware side, RealScan-G1 features IP54 certified rugged structure which provides extra durability under harsh conditions and it has USB2.0 interface for its power supply and data transfer. The device has wide platen (1.0 x 1.0 inch) for easier capturing. In addition, RealScan-G1 is compactly sized to fit into kiosks and mobile kits with 0.18 kg of weight

"RealScan-G1 has been specially developed to meet high-level requirements for India's UID authentication project which demands fast and high quality image capturing and extra durability in India's harsh environments. The device also features dust and waterproof rugged structure with IP54 certification required by UIDAI," said Young S. Moon, Vice President at Suprema. "Key technology in RealScan-G1 is based on our in-depth expertise in biometrics and image processing as well as our years of experience in large-scale government and public projects," Young added.

With the acquisition of final STQC certification and the company's hands-on expertise from UID Enrollment and NPR projects in India, Suprema plans to continue its success on upcoming UID Authentication project in India. In recent years, Suprema's live scanners have been chosen for several worldwide civil and criminal ID projects in the United States, India, Brazil, EU and African countries.
