New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2007
International Biometric Group (IBG) announces opportunities for participation in its upcoming Comparative Biometric Testing, Round 7.
Comparative Biometric Testing is the only biometric testing program focused on end-to-end systems, from sensor to matching algorithms. Comparative Biometric Testing measures accuracy and usability in real-world applications such as physical access, logical access, and border management.
IBG has evaluated over 60 systems through Comparative Biometric Testing since 1998, including systems from leading fingerprint, face, voice, iris, hand geometry, vein, signature, and keystroke vendors.
Vendors who participate in Comparative Biometric Testing obtain the following benefits:
- Open Dissemination of Results to Government and Industry Decision-Makers
Participants are welcome to publicize and disseminate test results. Thousands of government and industry decision-makers rely on Comparative Biometric Testing results to make deployment and partnership decisions.
- Exclusive Access to Detailed System Performance Data
Comparative Biometric Testing generates benchmark performance data essential to engineering teams, product developers, and sales and marketing staff. Test results help vendors identify areas for improvement in their capture and matching technologies.
- Independent, Third-Party Biometric Performance Certification
Biometric system accuracy and usability are essential considerations for government and commercial deployers, technology partners, and investors. Third-party testing by credible, experienced testing organizations is a precondition of procurement for many deployers.
Comparative Biometric Testing, Round 7 is scheduled to begin in Q1 2007, with results anticipated in late Q2. The cost to participate is $40,000.
