Credence ID releases handheld biometric platform with enhanced document reading capabilities

February 19, 2015 - 

Credence ID has launched CredenceOneMRZ, its new handheld solution that authorizes an individual’s identity by using a combination of biometrics and secure document reading capabilities.

Credence ID’s Android-based device is designed to rapidly read various smart credentials containing securely encrypted biometric and biographic data.

It then verifies the identity of subjects by matching them with a live scan of their fingerprint and/or face.

CredenceOne-MRZ is uniquely positioned to meet the demands of agencies and commercial entities that require handheld document reading along with the power of biometrics to provide strong identity validation,” said Bruce Hanson, president and CEO of Credence ID.

CredenceOne-MRZ offers all of the features included in its previously released device, such as a full-feature SDK, cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, contact and contactless card reading, in addition to an integrated MRZ reader for travel documents.

The device can verify the identity of an individual by using fingerprint and a presented credential.

The operator can also connect to an on board database or send the data to a remote database (AFIS) for matching purposes using the Wi-Fi or a cellular network.

Using a combination of sensors and readers, the operator can authenticate an individual when matched to their ID cards such as state, local and national ID cards, TWIC, CAC, PIV cards and all ICAO 9303 compliant passports.

The device’s integrated 5MP camera can also be used to read 1D and 2D (QR) barcodes.
