Suddenly Osmond makes other passport readers
This brand new hardware/software solution eclipses its predecessors and competitors in nearly every aspect. Check into the details to find out why Osmond is a game-changer.
Osmond vs. previous Adaptive Recognition models
If you have ever used our Combo Smart or PRMc series,
you are well aware
of their quality – but Osmond can still take that to the next level.
Scanning 10 times faster
Thanks to a dedicated high-end chip for hardware acceleration, what used to take 1-2 seconds is now reduced to
100 milliseconds (!). That’s all the time you need to get the post-processed, ready-to-use images, made under various illuminations.
1.4 times higher resolution
Osmond comes with a spectacular 12 MP sensor. The 700ppi scanning resolution provides crystal-clear and high color- and fidelity images – even for visualizing microprints and delicate tiny background graphics (which oftentimes include crucial security features).
4% larger scanning surface
Exceeding the standard passport data page size by 4% lets you scan the binding of the passport, processing the stitching thread that often acts as a security feature – as well as booklet passports that previously did not fit on the scanner.
Requires less expertise
Thanks to the integrated display and precise user notifications, the user always knows the outcome and what to do next. It gives much more confidence to any user than the LED readouts on previous models.
+1 crucial security check
Adding oblique light as an extra illumination opens up new possibilities for checking the genuineness of passports, national IDs, driver licenses, and other ID documents.
Oblique light is usually included in large document inspection devices, not in compact passport readers – however, Osmond’s cutting edge technology makes it possible.
Osmond comes with a special, internally cable-free design, manufactured on an automated assembly line at a speed that nobody could
have ever imagined – less than 2 minutes per unit – which allows us to build up a higher amount of stock and thus react more flexibly to time-sensitive projects.
You can forget about RMAs due to misalignment of optics – this passport reader calibrates itself when powering up. Thanks to this achievement, its failure rate literally converges to zero.
Versatile software capabilities
The greatness of this hardware comes alive when you use the accompanying software: the brand new Authentication Checker solution, which immediately turns you into an ID expert even if you have no experience as one.
And of course,
the outstanding features everyone’s talking about…
Adaptive Light Control
No moving parts
Osmond, the "gold standard" in the ID scanner market
Being in the ID document verification market for 20 years, we have seen players come and go. The same is happening today, even with the wide range of products available. It’s natural if you suddenly feel overwhelmed by so many different options. Let’s run through Osmond’s strengths as compared to other available units.
Osmond is a full-page e-passport reader – meaning that it is capable of scanning the full page of a passport’s data page, while capturing data from an electronic repository (known as an RFID chip) embedded in travel and identity documents at the same time. This attribute clearly distinguishes Osmond from swipe scanners, mobile apps, and most first-line scanners.
Simple scanning devices, such as swipe units, are suitable only when your business only requires basic data reading and has no need for authentication capabilities.
Mobile ID reader apps offer lower CapEx and a shallow learning curve, as they suit both mobile and desktop environments. However, their multi-step scanning process takes time, much more than the latest first-line readers, in a world where speed counts – not to mention their very limited verification and authentication capabilities.
Osmond is clearly not a second-line examination device either (though it is very close to it in some aspects). Regarding those special pieces of equipment, we agree that the depth of their capabilities cannot be beaten, but such units are simply too bulky, pricy, and complex/slow to operate, making them unfit for everyday use.
To sum up, Osmond supersedes simple scanning devices and mobile apps, while it closely approaches a second-line level, thanks to its special functions. With the awesome features listed above, Osmond also leads the way amongst other full-page scanners. Now, it’s the most innovative unit on the market.
It performs impeccably for the banking, hospitality, travel, and other industries that demand an accurate and reliable document and ID verification solution.
