HID Global, a provider of trusted identity solutions, announces its HID® Signo™ biometric reader 25B that is designed to capture and read fingerprints in real-world applications and conditions.

The reader is the latest addition to the company’s signature line of HID Signo readers and adds an API for integration with access control software solutions from HID partners. This enables a single point of biometric template enrollment through an access control system, these templates can then be pushed to all connected devices simultaneously.

Multispectral imaging technology

The new solution brings HID’s award-winning biometrics technology to the HID Signo Reader platform. It reliably reads fingerprints of all types, including those that are hard-to-read where people have wet, dry, dirty, or worn fingerprints.

The new solution brings HID’s award-winning biometrics technology to the HID Signo Reader platform

With company’s patented multispectral imaging technology, the HID Signo biometric reader 25B captures fingerprint images from both the surface and the sub-surface of the skin, delivering consistent read performance regardless of environmental and skin conditions. Its liveness detection capabilities also prevent spoof attempts leveraging fake fingers or latent fingerprints.

Key features:

  • Highly versatile – Unmatched flexibility to deploy multiple authentication modes, including biometric fingerprint and contactless physical and mobile credentials, with a single reader platform.
  • Unparalleled performance – Ultimate biometric fingerprint match reliability with patented multispectral imaging sensor that reads the subdermal layer of the skin for better accuracy.
  • Connected to the future – Easily configure and manage in the field with HID Biometric Manager or API integration, including support for software upgrades over the network.

Contactless credential technologies

The HID Signo biometric reader 25B supports a variety of popular contactless credential technologies including Seos®, iCLASS SE®, iCLASS®, MIFARE (Card Serial Number) and HID Mobile Access® virtual credentials. Each device supports Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth out of the box.

The reader is paired with the web-based HID biometric manager software that performs configuration and management of the reader, including firmware updates over the network. In addition, the software enables enrollment of user's fingerprint credentials for use with the different biometric authentication modes 1:1 verification and 1:N identification.
