Integrated Biometrics Kojak

Integrated Biometrics Kojak

Integrated Biometrics Kojak is another market leading, FBI certified and FINRA EFS approved 10-print scanner in our portfolio. IB Kojak is an optical fingerprint scanner, however, unlike traditional optical scanners; it takes a different and innovative approach to scan your fingerprints. Its LES film based sensor first detects the pattern of friction ridges and illuminate it on the other side of the sensor, where a digital camera instantly captures the pattern.

LES film based fingerprint capture offers many advantages. Unlike traditional optical scanners that take a digital photograph of visible fingerprint features, LES sensors captures the fingerprint pattern that comes in its physical contact. It allows LES sensor to capture flawless fingerprint images even if the finger skin is dry, dirty or visibly imperfect.

IB Kojak also offers immunity against spoofs and fake fingerprint attacks, which stems right from its LES film based sensor. Since LES sensors require human skin’s liveness features to work, spoofs are rejected in a flash.

LES sensors also stay unaffected by residual latent prints left by other users, so there is no need to clean the sensor surface before each scan.
