The application helps latent experts solve complex and difficult cases faster, by enabling examiners to search friction ridge evidence collected from crime scenes against known prints on a case by case basis. Case AFIS reduces erroneous examination decisions and provides better management of expert resources.”Through working with forensic experts on leading edge techniques and approaches, IDEMIA's latent print examination discipline has resulted in our latest compact and convenient offering, IDEMIA Case AFIS,” said Donnie Scott, Senior Vice President, Public Security for North America at IDEMIA. “The power of our market leading MBIS (Multi Biometric Identification System) coupled with our advanced latent examination tools packaged in a portable form provide latent examiners with the best in crime-solving solutions.”IDEMIA Case AFIS is a standalone system with powerful matching algorithms, independently tested for accuracy, speed and scalability. The solution empowers examiner performance in terms of speed, quality, consistency and efficiency. It also automates a manual comparison process without restrictions on record formats.Demonstrations of Case AFIS will be given at IDEMIA's booth at the 103rd Annual IAI International Forensic Educational Conference July 30 through August 1.
