The first release of MegaMatcher 12.0 SDK line.
- NFIQ 2.0 support – NIST Finger Image Quality (NFIQ) is a standardized fingerprint image quality metric used to determine if samples are of acceptable quality to be used for recognition.
- Finger presentation attack detection for rejecting templates extracting after scanning spoof fingers.
- Finger slap image quality assessment to detect incorrectly scanned images, such as only finger tips present or wrong hand or thumbs in a 4-4-2 scenario.
- New generation face detection algorithm which allows wider face position tolerance as well as general enhancement to recognize faces with face masks.
- New facial feature points detection algorithm is more accurate, especially in more difficult cases like non-frontal images, exaggerated facial expression or harsh lighting conditions.
- New face recognition models introduced to provide higher matching accuracy.
- Voiceprints: improved text-independent recognition.
- Licensing high-availability – multiple license servers can be used in such way that when at least one license server is functioning properly, application using licenses will continue to work. Also, the solution takes care of lot of details, such as automatically retrying to reobtain licenses which became temporary unavailable
Updates and improvements:
- Faster image reading. WSQ reading speed increased 3 times on PC and 2 times on ARM. TIFF image reading was optimized. Some other common cases were also optimized.
- Java version was upgraded to Java 8 (previously was 6). JNA version upgraded to 5.5.
- NVideoWriter was dropped (deprecated several years ago).
