BioRugged and Laxton bringing new biometric devices to Trustech 2021
According to the announcement from the company, its new ultra-compact device and modular device Marquee 5.1 which allows customers to connect a single desk top device to a computer to provide all the required functionality for multimodal biometric enrolment, will also be launched.
“We are proud to announce that our new BioWolf 8R has completed its MIL-SDD-810G,” BioRugged Chief Operating Officer Hof Retief says.
Chief Executive Officer Arnd Langguth adds: “On request of several customers, we have also developed a BioWolf 8R version with a MRZ and ePassport reader. It is the first of several products for the law enforcement and border control community we show in public.”
The company will occupy booth 5.2 F064 at the three-day event which brings together players in the payments, identification and security industries.
BioRugged says its products are in wide use across Africa and Latin America for different purposes including biometric know your customer (KYC), biometric voter registration and verification, digital ID cards enrolments as well as large-scale data collection initiatives.
The company, some months ago, donated biometric thermal guns to a South African primary school as part of its education support programme to help check the spread of COVID.
