What Is Image?

Image is an advanced cross-platform Java library that enables an application to read, write, and edit images in all common biometric image formats. It utilizes highly optimized state-of-the-art algorithms to achieve native code performance without the hassle of using the Java Native Interface(JNI).

Custom-tailored for biometric collection devices and identification systems

Image is designed with biometric system and collection device software development in mind. It has built-in support for commonly required functions such as encoding raw images from a collection device, extracting subimages, downsampling 1000 DPI to 500 DPI, and much more!

Includes the industry’s first and fastest pure java FBI-certified WSQ algorithm

Image is trusted in the largest biometric systems as well as thousands of collection devices worldwide. Image handles the many nuances that are only learned through experience and not found in any image format specification. By incorporating Image, you can build on our experience and focus on the features important to your application.
