Neurotechnology announced MegaMatcher Accelerator 4.0, the latest update of the company’s multi-biometric software and hardware solution for high-volume, high-speed fingerprint and iris identification.

The software includes a larger database capacity, enhanced fault tolerance and a new matching algorithm that provides even greater accuracy, with extremely fast matching speeds of up to 100 million fingerprints per second – with a tolerance of 360 degrees of fingerprint rotation – and up to 200 million irises per second.

Even at these high speeds, MegaMatcher Accelerator performs a full database search for each match (unlike systems that use internal database indexing or pre-classification). This eliminates potential false rejections from incorrect classifications and gives MegaMatcher Accelerator a very high degree of reliability.

MegaMatcher Accelerator 4.0 provides fast, accurate multi-biometric identification using both fingerprint and iris modes together, or either mode can be used as a primary form of identification. It can also check identification results with other biometric data from any Neurotechnology-supported modality, including face, palmprint or voice identification.

It can manage a database of up to 40 million fingerprints and 50 million irises with the Extended version and up to 4 million fingerprints and 5 million irises with the Standard version.

For even higher volume applications, multiple MegaMatcher Accelerators can be connected in a cluster to manage databases with billions of records.

The new fingerprint algorithm offers even higher reliability than the previous version: at the same False Acceptance Rate (FAR) level, the False Rejection Rate (FRR) is up to three times smaller.
