Elmhurst, Ill. (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Ambir Technology, Inc., http://www.ambir.com, a manufacturer and marketer of scanners, electronic signature pads and digital imaging software solutions, introduces the VeriScan ID identity verification solution.
How It Works
The Ambir VeriScan ID delivers identity verification by reading the electronic watermark on IDs and comparing it to the data extracted by OCR (optical character recognition). VeriScan ID uses the Digimarc® IDMarc® digital watermark technology to authenticate IDs. Digimarc has partnered with state governments to provide the digital watermark technology within the state's driver's licenses. Digimarc's IDMarc digital watermarking is currently used in approximately 1/3 of all U.S. driver licenses and is projected by Digimarc to be incorporated into 1 of 2 U.S. driver licenses produced by early 2008.
VeriScan ID Features
Ambir VeriScan ID delivers quick and easy identity verification of driver's licenses and other government-issued IDs. It is a cost-effective, easy-to-deploy solution that provides a secure and reliable resource for verification of IDMarc-equipped IDs and driver's licenses in order to minimize fraud.
VeriScan ID incorporates a high-resolution camera into its base to efficiently and accurately capture driver's license and other identity information with as little time and effort as it takes to snap a picture.
The VeriScan ID identity verification solution features a rapid USB 2.0 connection, has no moving parts and requires no calibration - making it a cost-effective, low-maintenance identity verification solution.
Pricing and Availability
Available now, the VeriScan ID identity verification solution costs $1490.00 (Model VS100-ID). It can be purchased directly from Ambir Technology, or from wholesale distributors and leading direct solution providers. Like all Ambir document, passport and card scanners, VeriScan ID is backed by a one-year manufacturer's warranty with 1-and 2-year extended warranties available as well.
