HID® OCR640e Desktop

Full-page ID scanner & eMRTD reader
HID OCR640e Full-Page Desktop Reader from acquisition of Access-IS
Key Applications & Features

The OCR640e Desktop, part of HID's ID document reader portfolio, is a full-page, multi-illumination passport and ID scanner. It captures ultraviolet and infrared images as well as the full page of a passport in color. In a simultaneous single action, the identity document reader also decodes the machine-readable zone (MRZ) and processes RFID data – including the holder’s image – from the chip.

This OCR desktop reader automatically detects when a document with machine readable data has been presented. Additionally, it can compensate for out-of-position MRZ data, so that the advanced recognition engine reliably provides highly accurate and very fast document reading capability, allowing large volumes of documents and smart cards to be processed quickly and efficiently.

The full-page ID scanner features visual feedback and can be programmed to provide audible feedback to confirm a successful read status.
