Share Article

Vision-Box S.A., leader in biometric products and electronic identity solutions, announces today the launch of vb i-dispenser© at the Security Document World Conference in London. The newly designed product is an all-in-one and self-service operated platform that covers the entire card issuance cycle including enrollment, renewal, delivery, printing, archive and payment of any type of electronic card or machine readable travel document right on the spot.

Vb i-dispenser© is the first self-contained card&passport delivery system which integrates, within a unique kiosk architecture, all necessary processing modules, which guide a citizen through the entire workflow to request, renew and acquire an electronic document.

The kiosk is to be used in public spaces and integrates a cash&card payment module and a fully multimodal (face, iris or fingerprint) biometric enrolment kiosk. The innovative dispensing module, which can include a printing unit for decentralized document personalization, is based on an intelligent cartridge storage technology, which allows the management of up to 5.000 electronic id-cards within the kiosk, thus eliminating the accumulation of uncollected cards and reducing significantly the cost of distribution.

All hardware and software components are fully developed and manufactured by Vision-Box, with the objective to maximize performance and compliance with international standards, such as ICAO 9303, ISO / IEC FCD 19794, 19785, ANSI / NIST, WSQ for FBI.

Miguel Leitmann, Senior Vice President of Vision-Box S.A. considers that the vb i-dispenser© has the potential to change the way central Government interacts with its citizens, bringing them closer to a more friendly and immediate interaction with the authorities, while reducing dramatically the costs of service and distribution of electronic documents. The first deployments have been contracted and are already scheduled for the third quarter of this year.

Vision-Box will showcase its ground breaking solutions for border control and ID management at the upcoming SDW12, booth E29, in London, UK, May 21-23, 2012.
