Large-scale AFIS and multi-biometric identification
MegaMatcher technology is designed for large-scale AFIS and multi-biometric systems developers.
The technology ensures high reliability and speed of biometric identification even when using large databases.
MegaMatcher is available as a software development kit that allows development of large-scale single- or multi-biometric fingerprint, iris, face, voice or palm print identification products for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android platforms.

Technology and SDK
Requirements for large-scale biometric systems.
Large-scale automatic biometric identification systems have a number of special requirements that are different from those of small- or medium-scale biometric systems.
These requirements include system reliability, productivity, scalability, etc.
MegaMatcher algorithm features and capabilities.
MegaMatcher includes fingerprint, facial, iris, speaker and palm print recognition engines and allows to use the fused fingerprint-face-voice-iris algorithm for fast and reliable identification in large-scale systems.
The fingerprint engine is NIST MINEX compliant and is capable of matching rolled and flat fingerprints between themselves.
The face engine includes live face detection and processes multiple faces in live video streams.
MegaMatcher SDK and MegaMatcher Accelerator in high productivity biometric systems.
MegaMatcher SDK and MegaMatcher Accelerator include cluster software that allows the scaling of an AFIS or multi-biometric system to reach the required response time, database capacity and system robustness.
MegaMatcher Standard and Extended SDK.
The Standard SDK is designed for development of client/server-based multi-biometric fingerprint, face, voice, iris and palmprint identification products.
The Extended SDK is designed for developing large-scale cluster-based AFIS or multi-biometric identification products.
Fingerprint scanner support.
More than 100 fingerprint scanners models are supported by MegaMatcher SDK on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and Android.
Face capture camera support.
A number of face capture cameras and web cams are supported by MegaMatcher SDK.
Iris scanner support.
A number of iris capture cameras and multi-modal face-iris devices are supported by MegaMatcher SDK.
Recommendations and constraints for face recognition.
The MegaMatcher facial recognition engine has certain requirements for the images, produced by cameras, including lighting conditions, face posture and expression.
Recommendations and constraints for speaker recognition.
The MegaMatcher speaker recognition engine has certain requirements for the microphones, including their settings and position, as well as user behavior and environment.
System requirements and supported development environments.
Client-side components of MegaMatcher SDK can be run on computers with x86 32- and 64-bit processors (at least 2 GHz processor recommended).
Server-side components may require faster hardware.
Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms are supported.
Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL and Oracle are supported.
Client-side components may be also used on Android devices.
The MegaMatcher biometric engine is able to match up to 200,000 fingerprints per second, 200,000 faces per second or 200,000 irises per second on a single PC; several PCs can be connected together to form a cluster for higher performance.
Reliability testing results.
MegaMatcher provides high identification reliability using either fingerprint, face or iris matching engines.
Using fused single- or multi-biometric identification allows MegaMatcher to reach almost 0 % FRR.
In 2014 MegaMatcher SDK fingerprint technology was recognized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as fully MINEX compliant and placed second in the Ongoing MINEX ranking for fingerprint matching algorithms.
The recognition allowed to use MegaMatcher in personal identity verification program (PIV) applications.
MegaMatcher fingerprint, face and iris algorithm demo applications and MegaMatcher 30-day SDK Trial are available for downloading.
