Sony's Biometrics Footprint Widens
Sony Electronics released information about the latest addition to its family of fingerprint identification devices, which so far have included the FIU-300, the FIU-710 Puppy, and now the FIU-600.
The new FIU-600 model builds on the same encryption technology as Sony's FIU-710 Puppy, although this time as a stationary identification device for verifying employee access to multiple company PCs.
The FIU-710 is designed as a mobile fingerprint passkey that scans, stores, and matches a user's fingerprint internally.
Less expensive than its predecessor, the FIU-600 uses an upgraded version of the FIU-710 technology without the crypto capabilities, the company said, although it is designed with the ability to export templates and scan up to 1,000 fingerprint images inside the device.
