The solution

The Biocapture SDK offers a simple solution for contactless fingerprint capture on any ordinary smartphone. It does not require special knowledge, skills or hardware; the user only needs a smartphone with a camera and a corresponding camera light. The Biocapture SDK can be integrated and run on Android 7.0 (API level 66532224) and iOS13 or higher devices.

The Biocapture SDK utilizes standard smartphone cameras and machine learning to enable professional fingerprint capturing and matching. Biocapture is compatible with existing AFIS systems and guarantees the highest possible matching performance, supporting 1:n identification, 1:1 verification, and enrollment.

The most critical aspects for quality images are camera control, flash control, and brightness and exposure control. The SDK manages the entire camera and optimizes the control logic for capturing fingerprints. Due to the variety of cameras in mobile devices and the associated optimizations, the device needs a one-time calibration to ensure high resolution (500 DPI) images. The Biocapture SDK includes a calibration module with an internal database of pre-calibrated devices.

Key highlights

  • Easy, one-time smartphone camera calibration by the user.
  • Supports authentication against “rolled” digital samples and “flatbed” scans.
  • Proven “liveness” detection—the SDK will not capture images from photos or videos.
