Trident's Android-based fully integrated design provides Fast Biometric Captures in any Lighting Condition

EMERYVILLE, CA -- Credence ID, LLC., a San Francisco Bay Area company, today announced the production availability of the Trident, the new handheld tri-biometric device which integrates simultaneous dual iris capture, a PIV-certified FAP 45 fingerprint sensor and a face camera, all fully integrated and running on a quad-core Android™ host. The product is designed to meet the needs of large biometric enabled civil, military and law enforcement programs that demand mobility and reliable capture in all possible lighting conditions along with the openness of Android which allows fast and easy application development. At less than 3 pounds (1360 grams), Trident can provide operators with the ability execute matches both onboard the device or over multiple communications networks including cellular or WIFI. GPS for automatic geo-location and Bluetooth for connecting peripherals are also standard features of Trident.

Integrators and solution providers can now expedite biometric application development for their customers using the Android OS and Credence SDK, giving them much faster development cycles and GUIs with the look and feel smart-device users have come to expect from their handheld devices. The SDK also includes source code to many common functions allowing partners to quickly get applications up and running for their customers.

"The biometrics market has been waiting for a device like Trident. Until now, iris and fingerprint capture in an integrated device was difficult in bright sunlight conditions. Windows-based devices originally developed for the military are comparatively difficult to use in outdoor conditions and application development for our customers was cumbersome and expensive. Today's users expect a handheld device to be as easy to use and approachable as their smart phone. It's fantastic to have all this in an open source device that costs about one-third of other equipment currently on the market," says Ken Nosker, CEO of Fulcrum Biometrics, an authorized distributor and partner of Credence ID.

"While Credence is a relatively new company, the executive and engineering teams within the organization have been in the biometrics industry for many years. Trident represents the summation of all the lessons we've learned in the areas of mobility and biometric technologies. It is the ultimate combination of face, finger and iris biometrics on a state of the art mobile platform. Programs such as voter ID, benefits distribution, border crossing, mobile banking and refugee management are just a few of the areas that will benefit from having an inexpensive, mobile and easy to use device, "said Bruce Hanson, President and CEO of Credence ID.
