Safran Identity & Security updates biometric tablet, releases MorphoTablet 2

November 28, 2016 - 

Safran Identity & Security (formerly Morpho) has released MorphoTablet 2, a multi-functional tablet that offers high accuracy biometric acquisition and matching.

MorphoTablet 2 builds upon its predecessor and is used in a variety of applications and markets throughout the world, including civil registration and election programs in Africa, time & attendance and border control operations in Europe and electronic customer registration (eKYC) procedures in Asia.

The updated touchscreen Android device now offers 4G high speed data transfer and its 13 mega-pixel camera with dual illumination system captures high definition portraits in poor lighting conditions and reads barcodes and passport MRZ.

The compact biometric tablet provides enhanced usability and robustness and opens a wide spectrum of use cases for on-the-spot identity verification: travelers at borders, voters in polling stations, drivers, employees clocking in/out, students passing an exam, patients receiving care, etc. This is enabled by Safran’s world leading fingerprint and facial algorithms which deliver fast “one-to-many” on device matching, against large databases stored in the device’s internal memory, and by a complete e-document (contact and contactless) reading capability: e-passports, ID cards, driving licenses and corporate badges.

The device is delivered with either a proprietary suite of applications or a SDK for integrators to custom build applications.

“Egypt was the very first country to benefit at a large scale from the multiple assets of our first generation biometric tablet, during the latest electoral programs,” commented Anne Bouverot, Chair and CEO of Safran Identity & Security. “We are extremely proud to introduce here our new MorphoTablet 2. It will help both public and private institutions prevent identity fraud and provide even faster, more secure and innovative proximity services to citizens and customers.”

MorphoTablet 2 is now on display at the Cairo ICT 2016 exhibition in Egypt..
