Setting new standards in speed and accuracy
NEC consistently achieved top rankings in both the lowest false accept and the lowest false reject rates recorded in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test. This test determined the feasibility of using minutiae data for the exchange of fingerprint information between dissimilar fingerprint matching systems and proved NEC's superior biometric technology. The test was conducted by NIST and was co-sponsored by the Department of Justice, Justice Management Division and the Department of Homeland Security US-VISIT program.
NEC's algorithms ranked #1 in matching accuracy. Slap Test offers an assessment of the accuracy of algorithms used to segment slap fingerprint images into individual fingerprint images, sponsored by NIST and the Justice Management Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
The unparalleled identification accuracy of NEC's fingerprint matching algorithm was rated top performer in all categories of the 2003 FpVTE test, an independently administered technology evaluation of fingerprint matching, identification, and verification systems conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Two NEC algorithms ranked #1 and #2 in overall matching cost effectiveness (matching speed and accuracy). NEC also captured the #2 rank for overall absolute accuracy, placing a close second (98.97% vs. 99.01%) behind an algorithm that matched at speeds nearly three times slower.
NEC's algorithms performance mirrored its performance in the One-to-One Fingerprint Matching Test.
