The result an individual, using a biometric sensor, creates by presenting biometric characteristics to a sensor. In terms of the general biometric model, this occurs in the data capture silo. During an individual’s interaction, the biometric sensor or device acquires an image or signal of biometric characteristics of a person. The goal of the presentation is for an individual to present the biometric characteristics of high quality to the sensor in a repeatable and consistent manner, so that the subsequent signal processing sub-processes of segmentation, feature extraction, and quality control can successfully occur. See also attempt, presentation, transaction, and general biometric model.
