Can you please provide our readers with a brief background of thecompany?
GB
Green Bit SpA was established back in 1989 developing electronicboards. In 1997 Green Bit started to focus on fingerprint biometricsdeveloping its first access control and Time & Attendance products.At this point we had all necessary technologies to build high qualityforensic fingerprint scanners in house: optics, electronics,mechanics and certainly software. Thus from 2001 on we decidedto develop Visascan3 answering a big tender from the Italian police.In the end due to our flexibility in responding to Police requirements,we were able to win and have supplied several hundred Visascan3 units for ImmigrantRegistration.

You provide a wide range of products for the Law Enforcement and Civil ID Industry. Can youplease tell us about your product line-up?
GB
Our product line-up is divided into two groups, one group contains all our fingerprint modulesavailable in desktop or OEM version, the second group includes custom products where wecombine our fingerprint modules with other standard devices, i.e. smartcard readers, RFIDreaders, flatbed scanners, signature pads etc. Our fingerprint modules, named DactyScan,range from our entry model: DactyScan26, a PIV and BSI certified 1" x 1" single fingerprintscanner used mainly in Civil ID and Border Control projects; following we have FBI certifiedDactyScan40, a 1.6" x 1.6" rolled and simultaneous 2-plane fingerprint scanner, used in the fieldof e-ID Document issuing and in Law Enforcement for inmate identification; DactyScan84 is ourlatest arrival to the family: a 3.2" x 3.0" 4-slap scanner, FBI certified with several SDKconfigurations in order to satisfy every customer request from Law Enforcement and Civil IDmarket; finally we have DactyScan127, a FBI certified 5" x 5" palm scanner. Regarding our
"Custom products" I will briefly outline two products that demonstrate very well Green Bit’s
strength in fast development of customized products: VisaScan3, combining our rolled scanner,our palm scanner plus a static photo-scanner, has been developed especially for a tender fromthe Italian police. Another important example is Scan-IDe40, the product that won the Spanishtender for the National eID card.

Recently you started a lot of abroad activities including the opening of subsidiaries. Can you tellus more?
GB
Having developed a full product range and given the various emerging possibilities in thebiometric industry worldwide, starting in 2006 we established a global network of sales agentsand partnerships enabling us to participate in highly promising markets such as the US, LatinAmerica and SE Asia. Therefore in January 2007 we opened a subsidiary in Washington, DCand a sales office in Buenos Aires to further promote our presence overseas. On September 1stwe established Green Bit Kazakhstan in JV with the local Ministry of Trade and Industry tostrengthen our presence in this very interesting and promising central Asian region.

Green Bit just won the tender to supply the system for data acquisition for new electronic IDCARD in Spain. Please tell us about this.
GB
As already underlined above, our ability to develop "Custom products", even on short notice,guaranteed our victory in this tender together with our partners Siemens and Informatica ElCorte Ingles. Scan-IDe40 was brought to the first prototype within three weeks after we saw thetender document for the first time. Strictly following a user friendly approach, we developed anintegrated device using our rolled fingerprint scanner, a flatbed scanner to scan photo andsignature and a combined RFID and smart card module. This made Scan-IDe40 the best choicefor this project as we offered a product that was able to perform every task requested and at thesame time already prepared for future tasks. During a very tough test period within the Policeoffices, Scan-IDe40 was able to outperform the competition and convince the technicalcommittee of the Spanish Police.

What do you see as the greatest challenge to the Biometric Industry today?
GB
The greatest challenge will still remain standardization and interoperability. Therefore Green Bitdecided to adopt the BioAPI 2.0 Ten Print Extension framework for Dactyscan84 with the strongbelief that this will facilitate significantly integration and adoption of biometrics not only by theestablished system integrators and solution providers but especially by IT companies that areentering the market attracted by the various and promising biometric ID card projects around theglobe. Nevertheless there is still a lot of work to be done; this is especially true for commercialmarkets where standardization and interoperability is absolutely needed for large scaleinternational implementations like biometric enabled ATMs or POS.
