Accurate Unique vein patterns, combined with Hitachi's finger vein technology delivers high accuracy resulting in some of the lowest Failure To Enroll (FTE), False Reject Rates (FRR) and False Accept Rates (FAR) among the lowest for biometric technologies.

Fast Advanced algorithms ensure vein pattern matching at lightning speeds (<1 second) resulting in the suitability of Finger vein biometrics for a variety of diverse applications.

Confident Finger vein patterns are internal, making forgery extremely challenging. This eliminates concerns around privacy.

Scalable The multi-threaded server architecture of Hitachi's Finger Vein Authentication Engine (FVAE) allows for massive scalability in matching performance, providing a strong and fast identification service for large user populations.

Robust The technology is extremely robust, such that, dry, dirty, greasy or rough finger has no impact on the performance and accuracy.

Versatile With a modest 400 bytes being the biometric finger vein template size, allows for a multitude of authentication options and efficient database management.


finger vein technology

Finger vein technology developed by Hitachi uses near-infrared light for pattern-matching and authentication. This light is transmitted through the finger and partially absorbed by hemoglobin in the veins to capture a unique finger vein pattern profile, which is then matched with a pre-registered profile to verify the userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity.
