«Madrid Report» proving NEXT superiority published

Madrid, May 20'th.

180 000 prints comparative study proves NEXT sensors critically superior to smaller competitors

Madrid, May 20’th.   The Carlos III, Unversity of Madrid has published the final full version of the «Madrid Report» – a first of its kind 180 000 fingerprints test comparing 3 market leading fingerprint sensors

Tore Etholm-Idsoe, CEO of NEXT Biometrics, said, “Laws of nature applies in fingerprinting. A small sensor will capture a small image containing a small number of time constant data only. Adding real life complexities like wet, dirty or worn fingers further adds to the everyday challenges resulting in poor user experience and low security levels.

Our industry is trending from simple unlock of phones towards more serious payments, cloud- and corporate access applications. NEXT will going forward support initiatives of specification standardisations. Such standards and 3’rd party verification of sensor supplier marketing claims are important for the long term success of our industry.» «
