SEIR Optic Technology
Several of the key technologies, which form the foundation for all SecuGen-based fingerprint products, are those that comprise SecuGen's unique SEIR (Surface Enhanced Irregular Reflection) optic technology.
SEIR technology combined with proprietary algorithms help
distinguish SecuGen sensors from all others. These distinguishing
