Explore 3D fingerprinting

i3 is driven by the hunt to capture increasingly reliable, higher quality fingerprint images. Historically, fingerprint processing has been limited to using two dimensional images. Imagine what we can achieve when we access the full topography—length, width, and depth—of a fingerprint and its features.

Another dimension of data

Fingers are three dimensional. It’s time to take advantage of the additional data available in the third dimension.

3D applications

3D technology provides the same abilities and features of 2D, plus another dimension of data. From the medical field to the licensing office, our 3D fingerprinting scanners can be used anytime a 2D FBI-certified livescan is required.
