Blue API: Cameras as fingerprint scanners

The ‘Blue API’ enables device cameras as contactless fingerprint scanners, by extracting and enhancing the ridge detail from images of the fingerprint and converting the image to the format required for database matching.


Built-in biometric sensors on consumer smartphones are elegant for their intended one to one, on-device functions but are not suitable for reliable authentication with external databases. Our very flexible image processing software can be deployed on a wide range of other devices with cameras such as self service kiosks and IoT devices.

Our contactless biometric technologies support low cost wide distribution of identity solutions for digital identities, including private and public sector use of national databases and corporate systems. Applications can include banking, insurance, policing, border protection, seamless travel, protecting data, personalised customer experiences and many more.

In addition to the Blue API for fingerprint scanning, we are able to supply additional biometric modalities technology to match the modality to your application or enhance security and flexibility through multimodal solutions.
