A successor to the popular, IDEMIA MorphoIDent handheld device, this next generation version has been upgraded with a Federal Bureau of Investigation certified Fingerprint Acquisition Profile (FAP)-30 optical fingerprint sensor, with specialist capability for suspect photo capture with a larger display area with optional touchscreen, increased battery life, and a rear facing camera.
The IDent 2.0 is designed to capture up to 10 fingerprints, transfer biometric information to the Mobile Connection application and display results from multiple criminal databases. The IDent 2.0 can also be expanded to support the ability to read ISO compliant Mobile IDs.
IDEMIA had partnered with several law enforcement agencies, like the Sacramento County Sherriff’s Office to pilot the IDent 2.0.
According to Christie Fleeman, Regional Cal-ID Program Manager for Sacramento County, “Keeping our community and officers safe is our top priority. The newly released IDent 2.0 device makes it easier to capture great quality prints for quick identification. The upgrades have made this device extremely easy to use with overwhelmingly positive feedback from the field. With this next generation technology, IDEMIA has really heard the needs of the law enforcement community and produced a product that we will use throughout Sacramento County law enforcement agencies.”
