Futronic Launches FS50 FIPS201/PIV Compliant USB2.0 Two Finger Scanner

September 25, 2009

HONG KONG, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Futronic Technology Company
Limited, a global provider of fingerprint recognition software and hardware
products, announces the commercial release of FS50 FIPS201/PIV Compliant
USB2.0 Two Finger Scanner.

FS50 is a portable Fingerprint Scanner with 1.6 x 1.5 inch (40.64 x 38.10
mm) scanning area. Its advanced optical system can capture 800 x 750 pixels
and 500 DPI image in 0.1 second. The large finger scanning area can capture
two flat fingerprints and rolled fingerprint which are now essential for law
enforcement, border control and National ID applications. It can handle bad
fingers such as dry, wet, blurred and scarred without any problem. Its
scanning window is crown glass prism and there is special anti-scratching
coating on the scanning surface. This makes FS50 even more robust and ensures
long term heavy duty usage in any harsh environment.

FS50 received FBI certification for compliance with PIV-071006 Image
Quality Specification. This means that it meets the US Federal Information
Processing Standard 201(FIPS 201) for Personal Identification Verification
(PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors. The FIPS 201 was developed by
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in response to Homeland
Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). It is for enhancing the security
of Federal facilities and information systems by applying stricter access
control. With FBI certification, FS50 will be put in the US General Services
Administration (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List soon.

“This launch was the result of our long term dedication and investment to
product development,” said YM Jiang, Futronic’s Vice President of Marketing.
“FS50 is our solution to the growing needs for rolled finger and multi fingers
scanning which are typical requirements for criminal identification and public
identity management applications. We are now ready to participate in those
demanding government initiated projects through our worldwide partners.”

Futronic provides Application Programming Interface (API) for FS50 to
capture fingerprint image on Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 for 32 and 64 bit,
as well as Windows CE 5.0/6.0 and Linux with kernel 2.4 or higher.

FS51, the OEM module of FS50, is available to customers who want to
integrate FS50 into their own products, such as handheld ID verification
machine, portable voter registration station, etc. FS51 is same as FS50 but
without plastic shell and USB cable for embedding into any target system.
Futronic will provide its detail mechanical drawing upon request.
