Introducing Adaptive Light Control

A new feature that eliminates strong ambient light issues in document scanning

Adverse light conditions have surely been an issue for most of us in the identity sector. Direct sunlight or strong artificial light may easily interfere with scanning, especially with hoodless passport reader devices. We know that ambient light can compromise optical character recognition (OCR) and authentication results. And this could have critical consequences in real-life situations in any application area: for example an airport, a bank, or front office environments where we talk about timely passenger flow and payment transactions.

adaptive light control filters out ambient light while passport scanning

Adaptive Recognition’s R&D team is well aware of this challenge. We are pleased to announce the launch of Adaptive Recognition’s brand new adaptive imaging technology applied in passport readers that will mean peace of mind to all our business partners. The new adaptive light control technology will manage unpredictable light conditions.

This pioneering Adaptive Light Control* feature will compensate for external light interference and make routine operations independent of the environment. Whether it is a table lamp, sunlight, a flashing smartphone, or a beam of light reflected from a watch – ID scanning will always produce excellent results. Because it all begins with perfect imaging – now a reality thanks to adaptive light control.

*This feature is available in Adaptive Recognition Passport & ID VIZ OCR and Authentication Software from version 2.1.7. To test this feature, please get in touch with your sales contact or our team.
