MegaMatcher Accelerator

Solution for large-scale AFIS or multi-biometric systems

MegaMatcher Accelerator is a hardware/software solution that provides high speed, high volume biometric identification for national-scale projects.

The Extreme and Extended versions are designed to run on server hardware and perform fast biometric template matching on the server-side of a large-scale AFIS or multi-modal system. The Standard version and Development Edition are intended to be run on a common PC. MegaMatcher Accelerator software licenses are available for new and existing MegaMatcher Extended SDK customers.

MegaMatcher Accelerator Extreme

MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme is a family of biometric solutions for fast fingerprint, iris and face matching on the server-side of an AFIS or multi-biometric system. The solutions are intended for national-scale biometric identification projects with hundreds of millions of people enrolled in the database.

  • These biometric matching engines can be used with MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme:
    • Fast fingerprint, iris and face matching engines that can be used separately or together. See technical specifications for engine comparison and licensing model for engine availability.
    • Fingerprint, face, iris and voiceprint matching engines that can be used separately or together to validate matching results produced by the fast fingerprint, face and/or iris engines. See MegaMatcher SDK reliability tests for more information.
  • Available as installation CD image which includes:
    • Debian Linux OS;
    • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme software.
  • Server hardware is optionally available. In this case the MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme software will be pre-installed by Neurotechnology on each unit, and the customers will receive ready-to use hardware/software solution.
