NEC recently released PIDplus version 2.0 with enhanced functionalities. One of the most important updates is the ability to do software-based latent matching. We can also now extract minutia templates from the images inside the PID system. We have enhanced all the capabilities -- redundancy, expandability -- and we have also implemented the ability to use multiple algorithms. The key to this is having several algorithms in the system that allow you to try different combinations of matching to improve your accuracy level based on the specific data.

 Tell us about NEC's PIDplus?
NEC
 NEC's PIDplus brings NEC's biometrics identification expertise to thecommercial and civil markets. For decades, NEC has been theleading provider of AFIS technology for law enforcement.With PIDplus, we're bringing our proven biometrics matching technology tothe table for integrators, solution providers and device manufacturersand
in a hardware-agnostic manner
allowing them to use theNEC biometrics expertise in their applications and devices.
FB
 NEC recently updated PIDplus. Can you tell us more about that?
NEC
 NEC recently released PIDplus version 2.0 with enhanced functionalities. One of the mostimportant updates is the ability to do software-based latent matching. We can also now extractminutia templates from the images inside the PID system. In the past we had to do that on theclient-side. If you have a very large number of records and you need to get templates createdfor those records before you send them for matching or for storage, it is very cumbersome onthe client-side to do that. So today, people can just send in the scanned images -- NEC doesthe extraction of the templates internally, inside the matching units, which is a big change.We have enhanced all the capabilities -- redundancy, expandability -- and we have alsoimplemented the ability to use multiple algorithms. The key to this is having several algorithmsin the system that allow you to try different combinations of matching to improve your accuracylevel based on the specific data.
FB
 NEC has a long history of success in the law enforcement market. Has this helped you with thisproduct?
 
NEC
 Without a doubt. NEC's legacy in law enforcement biometrics is unmatched, and that legacy hasbeen the key to PIDplus and the traction it's seen.
FB
 What have you seen in terms of market traction and new customers/partners?
NEC
 In North America, NEC works with major System Integrators and we have had excellentacceptance of the technology for use in their systems. As the markets these System Integrators
serve adopt biometrics for more and more uses, NEC’s unmatched biometrics products will helpthem to meet their customers’ needs. For example, as the use of biometrics increases systems
will get larger. Larger systems require more sophisticated, accurate and flexible biometrictechnology to protect against security breaches while maintaining the necessary degree of
convenience. NEC’s unmatched accuracy and scalability combine to provide a uniquely suited
answer to meet this need.
FB
 Can this solution be used in the in the commercial sector as well?
NEC
 Our primary market is the Federal government, civil agencies like motor vehicle departments,the Department of Defense, and so on. The vertical that we have had all our success with hasbeen with Systems Integrators that work with government entities primarily on major securitysystems that require large 1:N capabilities. When we define commercial, banks or companiesthat wish to do physical door access and the like, this product was not designed for thatpurpose. The commercial market is still focused on 1:1. They are interested in taking a card witha fingerprint on it and capturing the fingerprint and swiping that card and doing a match rightthere to allow for example, access to a door or to a bank account.There has been almost no movement on the commercial side to accept larger scale 1:N identitysystems. They are just using them for verification of already established identities. So you gointo the bank, give them your drive
r’s license, establish your identity, open your bank accountand they give you a card with your fingerprint in it. From then on you use that to access ATM’s
or whatever. That activity has been more successful in Europe and South America than it hasbeen in the US.The banking industry is still very conservative and has been slow to adopt the use of biometricsin any large scale. They certainly have not been as aggressive as most had hoped for.
FB
 You mentioned that the banking sector is evolving a little slowly. Where are you seeing thegreatest growth?
