OCR310e OCR & MRZ Reading Module for Integration to OEM Manufacturer's Mobile Devices

Mobile MRZ passport and ID card readerThe OCR310e is the world's smallest OCR/MRZ reading engine, designed for OEM manufacturers to integrate into their mobile and portable devices.


Used in many of our standard devices, including snap-on accessories for mobile computers, the OCR310e technology is well proven and reads data from the machine readable zone (MRZ) of identity documents, including passports, driver's licences and ID cards.


Applications for these devices include mobile identity and travel document verification, queue-busting and roaming passenger services at airports, and mobile checking of identity by police forces. The OCR310e has a very low power consumption, helping manufacturers of battery operated devices to maximise the time between charging.
