SANTA CLARA, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SecuGen, the world’s leading vendor of optical fingerprint readers, is pleased to announce that it has released the OptiMouse™ Plus, an upgraded version of the world’s first combination fingerprint reader and optical mouse. Like all of SecuGen’s fingerprint readers, the OptiMouse Plus is very rugged, accurate, and affordable.

The OptiMouse Plus scans fingerprints faster than the previous generation of fingerprint mouse and now features Smart Capture™. Smart Capture technology automatically adjusts the sensor brightness to insure accurate and high quality fingerprint scanning. Smart Capture greatly improves results when obtaining fingerprints from moist or dry fingers, which used to be problematic with earlier generations of fingerprint readers.

The OptiMouse Plus can be used with the countless applications that have been developed by SecuGen ISV partners. In addition, software developers can now download SecuGen Software Developer Kits (SDKs) at no cost. SecuGen’s SDKs cover an increasingly wide variety of Operating System platforms.

Dan Riley, VP of Engineering for SecuGen said, “The OptiMouse Plus continues our endless pursuit in the development of fingerprint peripherals that are rugged, accurate, fast and affordable. This new product meets all of those targets.”

“At SecuGen, we listen closely to what our partners are saying,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “We are confident that the new OptiMouse Plus is responsive to their needs. We continue to focus all of our efforts on providing our partners with the products they need to build highly competitive businesses.”
