Warwick Warp LiveScan SDK

A scalable fingerprint enrolment and matching SDK for highly accurate and demanding applications.

A scalable fingerprint enrolment and matching product designed for highly accurate fingerprint matching applications.

The LiveScan SDK includes Warwick Warp's innovative technology to improve the matching accuracy of low-quality fingerprints, helping to reduce the costs and consequences associated with failure to match and failure to enrol errors in all types of installations. The SDK is designed to be easy to integrate and fast to evaluate. Applications for the LiveScan product include:

  • Workforce Management
  • Time and Attendance
  • Access Control
  • Identity Verification

Warwick Warp also has an AFIS SDK for large scale government and civil applications as well as a Latent SDK for automatic matching of crime scene marks.


  • Independent benchmarking by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the National Institute for Science and Technology (NIST) shows that this SDK provides market-leading accuracy.
  • Highly scalable, maintaining its performance as the print database increases in size and is therefore suitable for small to medium scale commercial applications for upto 75,000 fingerprint databases.
  • Incorporates Warwick Warp's patented technology for modelling and enhancing low quality fingerprints.
  • Aligns each fingerprint as part of the enrolment process so that stored images are all pre-aligned, which enables faster 1:1 and 1:N matching speeds.
  • Designed to reduce failure-to-enrol and failure-to-match rates, maximising security and minimising inconvenience and associated costs.
  • Support any fingerprint scanners that produce bitmap images
  • Fully featured C, C# and C++ APIs and extensive sample codes for easy integration.

Version 4 of our LiveScan SDK introduces a wide range of new features to benefit integrators, users and scheme operators.

  • matching is now up to 50% faster,
  • MINEX and STQC certified algorithms as standard,
  • newly redesigned API that makes integration faster and easier,
  • external gallery databases (template information) fully supported,
  • low or high throughput FBI certified WSQ codec,
  • C, C++, C# and Java APIs all fully supported,
  • support for data formats including ILO (SID), 19794-2 (2005 and 2011), ANSI 378 (2004 and 2009), ANSI / NIST ITL (3,4,5,6,7,9,13,14,15) and
  • 32-bit and 64-bit versions for both Windows and Linux.
