Microsoft has added a framework to it’s latest version of the Windows operating system ‘Windows 7′ to deal with common biometric requirements. Microsoft’s website says;
Biometrics is an increasingly popular technology that provides convenient access to systems, services, and resources. Biometrics relies on measuring an unchanging physical characteristic of a person to uniquely identify that person. Fingerprints are one of the most frequently used biometric characteristics, with millions of fingerprint biometric devices that are embedded in personal computers and peripherals.
In Windows® 7, the Windows Biometric Framework (WBF) provides support for fingerprint biometric devices through a new set of components. These components improve the quality, reliability, and consistency of the user experience for customers who have fingerprint biometric devices.
The Windows Biometric Framework supports the Secugen Hamster Plus scanner! Which means our best value USB scanner can be purchased to use on Windows 7 systems without the need for additional software.
The Secugen Hamster plus can be purchased online from our website here.
