Aratek’s rugged ten-print mobile biometric scanner built for use in the field
Aratek is anticipating the widespread adoption of digital ID, and the need for mobile verification hardware, with its new ten-print biometric tablet designed for easy mobile ID management in the field.
According to the global biometrics company’s website, the Marshall 8 Plus biometric enrolment tablet is “targeted squarely at helping governments and institutions build ecosystems for socio-economic development programs.”
The Marshall 8 Plus boasts quality specs and multi-modal biometrics. It contains a 4-4-2-fingerprint sensor for ten-print imaging and authentication, and also comes with integrated facial and iris recognition technology. Adding to its toolkit is a native NFC reader for document verification, barcode scanning for ID or payment processing, and a built-in MRZ reader.
Durability for a variety of environments
The Marshall 8 biometric tablet has an IP65 rating, meaning it can withstand dust and water. Intended for transit and heavy use, it features ergonomic design, a hand strap, and an intuitive, user-friendly interface. Suggested applications include national ID, voter registration, law enforcement, border control, healthcare, transit, and more.
“We expect the Marshall 8 Plus to be the biometric tablet of choice in the massive efforts to develop biometric digital ID ecosystems around the world as part of the grand goal of bridging socio-economic gaps globally, especially in Africa and other developing regions,” said Samuel Wu, vice president for Aratek’s international business division, in a blog post profiling the product.
