Hitachi Turns Standard Computer Camera into Finger Vein Scanner

Hitachi is releasing a new finger vein authentication solution built to be simpler and safer than other biometric modalities. To use the new solution, users simply need to hold up their hand in front of the built-in camera on a standard computer, at which point Hitachi’s system will capture the image and analyze the vein pattern to verify their identity.

The feature is the latest application of Hitachi’s pioneering finger vein technology. The company began scanning finger veins with smartphone cameras in 2016, and its tech was utilized in FingoPay’s naked payments trial in the UK.

Sthaler worked with music festival industry to develop a cashless, card-free payment system that was available to everyone. The company developed Fingopay, using VeinID technology, in partnership with Hitachi. Blue Star Capital PLC (LON:BLU) is an investing company with a focus on new technologies. Blue Star’s investments include a 0.9% holding in Sthaler.
