Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 17, 2012

A new reader terminal claims it is the "only true PACS terminal using Palm Vein Recognition" and accommodates up to four different credential types, more than the two or three credentials supported by typical multi-modal readers. Just how many credential types are needed in one reader? In this note, we examine IdentyTech's Sapphire reader, its ideal application, and compare it to similar products.
