The DigitalPersona 4500 Fingerprint Reader is a USB peripheral perfect for individual desk top users, as well as multiple users in shared environments. Its compact design conserves desk space in enterprises, and its professional, modern appearance looks elegant in point-of-sale environments (POS). The DigitalPersona 4500 Reader utilizes optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality, a large capture area and superior reliability. A silicone coating allows it to read a wide range of fingerprints accurately and rapidly regardless of placement angle. The high-quality metal casing resists unintentional movement. To use, simply place a finger on the reader window and the reader quickly and automatically captures and encrypts the fingerprint image before sending it to the DigitalPersona FingerJet biometric engine for verification. For superior user feedback, a red flash indicates that a fingerprint image has been captured. The DigitalPersona 4500 Fingerprint Reader is designed for use with a full range of HID Global software including our authentication solutions, as well as most of our DigitalPersona Software Development Kits. Whether you are an enterprise customer or a system integrator, HID's biometric identity verification solutions provide a natural extension to your security system and applications.
