Authentication Software Add-On
for AR ID Readers

Precise VIZ Reading and ID Authentication
via Neural Network-Based OCR Technology


Enjoy the ultimate ID document reading and verification experience with Adaptive Recognition’s ID Authentication module. Just pair it with one of our high-tech ID scanners, and you will feel like a true forgery expert, capable of instantly verifying MRZ (machine readable zone) and VIZ (visual inspection zone) data, as well as standard and nonstandard security features like pattern checking illuminated by various light sources, geometry analysis, and OVD/OVI checks according to the characteristics of the given document type.

Highlighted features

Easy Handling

Easy Handling

Just scan the document, and the software will do everything automatically, from autocropping and -rotating the image, to extracting all data and performing the authentication.

Next Level Authentication

Next-Level Authentication

Forget basic authentication and go beyond with features like fluorescent element checks, pattern verification, geometry analysis, and support for JURA® security elements.

Convenient Data Handling

Adjustable Thresholds

For a fully customizable experience, our software module provides adjustable thresholds for the thoroughness of the automatic examination and cross-verification processes.


Trained for Real-Life IDs

Thanks to machine learning, our ID authentication solution can efficiently deal with any ID regardless of country of origin and date of issue.


Automatic Chip Reading and Verification

With the authentication software, all data - biometric included - can be thoroughly read and cross-checked with all visible information in the ID document.

See What the VIZ & Authentication Software Gives You

Adaptive Recognition's ID Authentication software add-on isn't just a software module for verifying the genuineness of an ID document; it's much more than that. Here's the reason why:
Neural Network-Based MRZ OCR

Neural Network-Based MRZ OCR

Adaptive Recognition’s OCR has been in continuous development since the 90s—all of this done in-house. Since then, our basic MRZ OCR has been trained to deal with real-life documents, ensuring that it can read and recognize any ID no matter where and when it came from. The OCR confidently supports data originating from multispectral input sources, and thanks to the power of AI, it features automatic image enhancements – like cropping, face photo cutout, rotation, Reflection Removal,  Adaptive Light Control® – to guarantee the best authentication results possible.

In addition to confidently reading all MRZ data, Adaptive Recognition’s basic OCR provides all general authentication checks like checksum verification, expiration date check, UV dullness check, as well as OVI (optical variable ink) and OVD (optical variable device) visualization.

Unbeatable VIZ Reading Experience

Unbeatable VIZ Reading Experience

Thanks to being trained for dealing with real-life IDs, Adaptive Recognition’s VIZ OCR software can confidently read and recognize virtually all data featured in the VIZ. The software extracts personal and document data, recognizes the photo in an ID, and automatically snaps a picture of these parts of the document and crops them to show what’s truly important.

VIZ OCR provides automatic segmentation too, meaning that all extracted data turned into text format is conveniently divided into separate fields for better understanding. Also, no alphabet is a challenge; all characters are read, recognized, and displayed with utmost accuracy, even less common ones such as Greek, Georgian, or Vietnamese.

With the advanced machine learning technology behind Adaptive Recognition’s VIZ OCR, ID document classification is no longer an issue. In other words, there is no such thing as an unknown ID document for VIZ OCR; you’ll always know where the ID comes from and which generation it belongs to.

ID Authentication Without Limits

ID Authentication Without Limits

Our ID authentication software module has been designed explicitly for authenticating security documents, capable of working from multispectral image sources to get all security elements visualized and verified on your screen, from patterns and geometric elements to fluorescent inks and fibers.

With the authentication software module, all general authentication options can be performed like duly separated optical variable devices (OVD) and optical variable inks (OVI) visualization, photocopy detection via UV dullness check, expiration date check, and many more. Advanced features provided by our software include authenticating images of IDs with tactile/embossed elements taken with oblique (edge) light, various biometric and text cross-verification options for filtering out cloned/intentionally damaged RFID chips, and detection of photomanipulation by supporting JURA®’s Invisible Personal Information (IPI) technology.

Additionally, all images examined by our authentication software module are automatically enhanced in such a way that they remain readable at all times. This is due to Adaptive Recognition ID reader-supported features like Advanced Light Control® – that considers external light conditions and automatically turns images darker or lighter – or Reflection Removal, a feature that reduces ID document illegibility caused by glare effects down to zero.
