UNIVERSAL IDENTITY DOCUMENT READER
Combo Scanis an extremely compact, fast and fully automated ID and passport scanner designed for data entry applications. Its accuracy and efficiency combined with ease of use ensures peace of mind for any business where scanning and authentication of IDs or passport are required. Hotel check-in, casinos, car rental or retail locations and liquor stores are just a few of the areas of use.
The scanning process automatically starts when the document is placed in the reader. Several, high resolution images are captured, processed, and even the glossy reflections caused by laminated documents are removed for the best OCR results. Within two seconds not only OCR, (optional) RFID chip and bar code data but the authentication checks are also available. This saves a lot of time – approximately 2-3 minutes per customer – and greatly improves the accuracy of the data compared to manual input. Maintenance-free operation is ensured by the no-moving parts design. The scanner operates on a single USB; no external power supply is required.

- Identity- or travel document reading and authentication rely on specifically developed software that is capable of performing optical character recognition (OCR), barcode reading, data recording and security verifications; as well as on scanner hardware that executes illuminations in various wavelengths, captures the necessary images and signals from any embedded RFID, or optionally, from contact chips and magnetic stripes. Hardware and software must work in a well-defined unison to perform a complete identification check and data recording in one-to-two seconds by a qualified ID scanning device.
Reading, data and image capture, and authentication automatically begin when the identity document is placed on the device’s scanning surface. Depending on the specific model, different levels of ID verification and data recording are performed during this time.
Many scanners are designed to complete OCR not just on the machine readable zone (MRZ) but also on the visual inspection zone (VIZ) of the documents. During the OCR, the reading device captures the MRZ, VIZ and barcode data, and includes it in its output along with a record of the recognized document type. The recorded characters are forwarded to compile the necessary identity data and are also used to assist with security mechanisms such as checksum functions.
Further authentication is made possible by visible, infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) illumination and image rendering; and by comparing the barcode data, holographic security features and ID photo with the digital information stored on the document’s chip or magnetic stripe – depending on the type of ID verified and scanner used. The displayed results can summarize the different steps of verification procedure, OCR checksum, VIZ and barcode reading and optionally the passive and active authentications performed on the e-passport’s or other document’s RFID.
While ARH’s ID and e-passport scanners autonomously manage the document reading and security procedures with the help of their provided software development kit (SDK), providing the necessary database for ID certification is normally the task of the partner systems integrator who develops the customized application for the specific end user. The SDK also offers several demo application, but since every project is different in its scope and requirements, the integrators are encouraged to provide the vital user interface for the given project that involves document reading and authentication.
PRACTICAL APPLICATIONSThe identity document readers of ARH currently assist in fast and error-free personal data acquisitions, ID and passport verifications, and quality control applications at several thousand sites around the world. The company’s devices help to make the processing of travelers and employees quick and secure at many airport, border crossings and embassies. Many hotels, banks and even self-service application benefit from the ARH document scanner’s ability to rapidly gather and transfer the necessary identity data for various commercial roles. Document issuing agencies of several governments also use the readers’ ability for final checks prior to releasing the newly issued IDs and passports.
COMPONENTSARH identity document reader packages normally contain the following components:
• ID or ePassport reading unit
• Functions libraries
• Demo and test applications
• Tutorial and sample applications both in executable and source code forms
