AU10TIX biometric onboarding technology reads problem barcodes
Identity document authentication company AU10TIX has announced a Direct-From-Image barcode reading technology that it says reads barcodes from identity documents with higher resistance to problems caused by quality variation than conventional barcode readers.
AU10TIX is a subsidiary of ICTS International N.V., and provides fully-automated onboarding and KYC/AML processes. In addition to the company’s forensic-level forgery detection, it provides up to 300 percent higher conversion rates for borderline quality images, according to the announcement. AU10TIX also provides modularly deep-convolution biometric face matching with liveness detection.
“Anyone operating in markets where ID documents have barcodes on them understands the importance of this immediately,” says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX. “Barcode reading off ID documents is basic requirement in markets where this feature is part of ID layouts. It is easy to do at the “front end” where you have an app or SDK that acts as barcode reader. But it is a whole different story when the quality of image capturing is not optimal, and when historical images are already on record and need remediation. This means two things: One, higher barcode reading success rates; Two: Apps and SDKs can be lighter, requiring less system resources on the customer end.”
