Share Article

Panasonic, a worldwide specialist in the development and manufacture of electronic products for a wide range of consumer, business, and industrial needs, has introduced the very latest epassport reader, the jt-p100.

This new, innovative technology from Panasonic includes color and IR/UV image capture and barcode reading capabilities. The JT-P100 has a wide range of applications including efficient immigration control, aircraft boarding procedures and hotel guest management services.

The new JT-P100 ePassport Reader will ensure faster reading for passport numbers and photographs. These are captured in 0.1 seconds, with processed data output in approximately 1 second. Panasonic ePassport Readers come with embedded circuitry to handle OCR and BAC processing, eliminating the need for PC's and making them easier to install wherever they are needed.

According to Mr. Yasuo Yamasaki, General Manager, Panasonic Marketing Middle East, the latest ePassport Reader includes proprietary technology unique to Panasonic that boosts the reading speed. Yamasaki said "Our high speed ePassport Readers demonstrate Panasonic's innovative ability to produce new and improved products for a variety of different markets. The JT-P100 Reader is in the world's smallest class and the compact dimensions make it easy to install on even the narrowest workspace. Panasonic has supplied immigration authorities around the world with high-speed passport readers for 20 years, and we continue to make products, like the JT-P100, that are more accurate, faster and easier to use than ever before."

Another key feature is that the passport can be held a few millimeters above the glass, held upside down or skewed, yet the image angle and rotation are automatically adjusted to ensure accuracy.

This year, Panasonic Corporation will be presenting its latest digital portfolio of products and technologies at the Gitex 2009 technology week in Dubai from -18th to 22nd October 2009 at its booth in Sheikh Saeed Hall, stand number NH-R40. This year, visitors can look forward to a revolutionizing viewing experience that feels more real than it ever has been before thanks to Panasonic's new Full HD 3D technology.
