Bioscrypt Announces the V-Station (Optical) Reader Featuring a 500 DPI Optical Sensor



    Optical reader interoperable with other Bioscrypt readers featuring
    silicon sensors

    TORONTO, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of
identity and access management solutions, today announced the V-Station
(Optical), a fingerprint reader for physical access control featuring a
500 DPI optical sensor. The reader is immediately available for purchase.
    With the introduction of the V-Station (Optical), Bioscrypt has added
SecuGen's optical sensor technology to its award-winning line of readers for
physical access control. Bioscrypt's patented fingerprint pattern matching
algorithm and supporting firmware are the foundation for the identity
verification performance of the new reader.
    Because of the common algorithm platform, the V-Station (Optical) is
interoperable with the entire range of Veri-Series readers, with the exception
of the PIV-Station, which was specifically designed for use with FIPS 201
minutia templates. This enables companies already using Bioscrypt's
industry-leading fingerprint readers to introduce the V-Station (Optical)
without having to reenroll employees in order to verify their fingerprint
template or to implement a new project and have the flexibility of using both
optical and silicon sensor based readers.
    "Bioscrypt is recognized as the world leader in innovation and
performance when it comes to fingerprint biometric access control readers,
which, by extension, has made the Company the most important in the market to
work with," said Won Lee, President and CEO of SecuGen. "We're pleased to
provide them with our industry-leading optical sensor technology."
    The V-Station (Optical) can be used for dual- or multi-factor
authentication by supporting not only fingerprint biometric verification but
personal identification numbers, proximity cards, tokens and smart cards.
    "Bioscrypt believes organizations should have the power to choose between
a variety of hardware systems and that's why we created our fingerprint
matching algorithm to be interoperable with a variety of sensors," said Robert
M. Douglas, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. "Organizations may choose to
deploy different types of sensors in order to meet various needs and the
V-Station (Optical) provides them with another robust option from Bioscrypt."
