HID Global, a provider of secure identity solutions, has won the Best Use of Biometrics in a Commercial Setting Award for its Lumidigm biometrics deployment in two of China’s leading theme parks in Guangzhou province. HID Global was recognized at this year’s SMART Awards Asia 2016, which honors organizations and individuals that have demonstrated unparalleled excellence in the cards, payments, retail, e-commerce, and banking industry.

Commercial Biometrics Solution

Lumidigm biometric authentication solutions from HID Global bring multispectral imaging technology to any identity application where knowing “who” matters. HID Global’s Lumidigm family of fingerprint sensors was deployed to manage visitors' fingerprint authentication at the theme park gates, ticket booth and member kiosk stations. The implementation helped the amusement parks make ticket collection easy and trouble-free, while also reducing the amount of time park guests had to stand in line for rides. For the theme park management, linking each ticket to a specific customer with the touch of a finger ensured prevention of fraud and business losses.

“We are honored that HID Global’s Lumidigm technology has been recognized as the most innovative in-market commercial biometrics solution in the entertainment sector in the East Asia region,” said Paul Butler, Vice President and General Manager, Biometrics at HID Global. “Our solutions are centered on ensuring secure transactions while enhancing user experience and the usage of Lumidigm in high-traffic amusement parks in China is a perfect example of a highly secure and convenient solution for theme park guests that also protects the business interests of theme park owners.”

Multispectral Fingerprint Sensors

The Lumidigm multispectral fingerprint sensors increase biometric performance by acquiring multiple images of the fingerprint from the surface and from under the skin. Compared to conventional means of fingerprint sensing such as optical, radio frequency and thermal, multispectral sensors are able to collect usable biometric images even in conditions such as worn or dry fingers, presence of moist and topical contaminants and ambient lights, or poor contact between the finger and sensor, hence, lowering overall lifetime cost of system ownership and reduced management oversight and frustrated users.

With industry-wide recognition for superior biometric performance, HID Global’s Lumidigm solutions are broadly deployed by the banking industry for authenticating bank customers at ATMs, enabling over two billion transactions per year, and by the government for securing busy international borders, and ensuring public goods and services reach the intended recipients.
