HiScan is a professional fingerprint scanner (1"x1"), certified by FBI according to PIV (Personal Identity Verification) Image Quality Specifications. HiScan is entirely designed and manufactured by Umpi.
The characteristics of accuracy and reliability make this device the ideal solution for applications where high quality of the acquired images and compatibility with the international reference standards are required: electronic passport, identity card (CIE), visas, residence permits , government and forensic applications.
HiScan has been certified by the FBI according to the PIV Image Quality Specifications and it is currently the most competitively priced 1 "x1" PIV-compatible scanner on the international market.
HiScan can be used as a simple device for acquiring high quality fingerprint images or, in combination with the FxISO SDK engine, to create complete biometric solutions for fingerprint-based identity verification or identification.

Market segment and applications
HiScan is a fingerprint scanner targeted to professional applications; in this market segment (Hi-End), in order to maximize accuracy and interoperability, fingerprint scanners are required to comply with some minimum specifications: sensing area at least 1”x1”, 500 DPI resolution, geometric distortion less than 1%. Examples of applications are:
biometric passport and border crossing
permit of entry and visas
electronic documents (ID cards)
airport and port security
logical and physical security (in the business sector)
ATM and kiosks
Scanner Certification and Comparison with competitors scanners
HiScan has been conceived to become the reference in the single-finger professional scanner market segment. The comparative tests with competitor scanners show the HiScan superiority (please contact Umpi for more details). The scanner cost is also very appealin.
HiScan, designed to produce maximum accuracy and interoperability, has been:
approved as a qualified fingerprint scanner for biometric data acquisition devices for the Electronic Identity Card (CIE), (CIE),
conforms to the specifications of the fingerprint scanner for the issuance of Electronic Passport in Italy.
OEM version and Mechanical Integration
HiScan (OEM version) is targeted to system integrators. Its mechanical shape allows a very easy (and esthetically pleasant) integration inside third party systems. On demand, Umpi can provide a specific plastic support for mounting the scanner on a panel, thus further reducing the integration cost. The scanner glass prism makes the scanner abrasion- and scratch- resistant, thus increasing durability and minimizing maintenance.
The FG version (FingerGuide), has a led graphical interface to instruct the user the finger to be scanned and the scan quality (green, orange and red).
The scanner can be used in applications requiring only to acquire fingerprint images (through the FxISO SDK light) and/or in complete biometric applications for fingerprint-based identity verification or identification (through FxISO SDK). HiScan is compatible with both Windows and Linux.
HiScan driver also provides a TWAIN interface that enables the acquisition of fingerprint images through any software that supports this standard interface. Once installed, HiScan can be selected as a TWAIN image source from any application that supports the TWAIN interface.
