Automated Data Entry: computer systems capable of reading passports, travel documents, ID cards and VISAs. This is an essential demand of the security industry.

Our passport reader products are designed to meet the latest demands of travel document reading, passport reading, visa and ID card OCR reading. We offer a range of products from a full-page passport scanner (passport capturing and recognition device) to a multi-row OCR reader for the MRZ. The RFID reading technology is also integrated part of our new passport reader models.

Our products are both portable and desktop devices 'equipped' with a Software Development Kit, so that they can be integrated into computer systems - whether existing or planned. The industrial standard interfaces of our devices can be integrated into any IT system.

All of our devices are designed for 24/7 usage: they are ergonomic, easy to use, reliable and highly durable. This is done with no compromise on the functionality side: our products have wide range of functions from highly accurate OCR reading through full page capturing in visible, infra-red (IR) and ultra-violet (UV) light to semiautomatic or automatic authenticity verification of travel documents.

Our passport readers are proven products. There are several countries where our devices are in use - with the satisfaction of the end-user.

General Description

Our passport reader (ID card or VISA reader) devices capture the document to be inspected, read essential information from the captured image and forwards these information - already in ASCII - to the processing computer system, so that the travel documents can be verified with specific databases, checked against black lists, etc.

Uniquely on the market, our products not only provide OCR reading (automatic data entry) of personal documents, but also provide full digital pictures about the documents for storage and authenticity verification against document fraud and document forgery.

Our stand alone passport reader devices' data recognition system (form recognition, OCR reading and verification) for the automatic data entry (ADE) is carried out independently from existing hardware and software of the end user's system. These devices are capable to perform all of the required data capture, OCR reading and verification functions as well as the verification (lookup) of the documents in databases, the data recording and the image storage autonomously. Of course, autonomy does not mean closed structure: the full control of the entire range of functionality is provided via standard TCP/IP interface for your host computer system.

Uniquely on the market, our robust, heavy-duty portable passport reader device stands for the entire range of requirements of a 24h/day, 7days/week duty at state borders, airports, railways and harbours.

There is a wide range of applications of our products: immigration, border control, airports, harbours and state borders, hotel registration and other public places - generally everywhere, where passengers or human traffic needs to be identified.

The demand of increased security makes these products to be essential tools in personal traffic control, immigration, and crime prevention - in general and significant risk reduction.
