PENTA Scanner®

Multifunctional ID Document Scanner for Document Authentication

DESKO’s PENTA Scanner® easily and efficiently scans passports, ID cards, and visas. Scanning starts automatically wherever the document is placed on the scan window. The PENTA Scanner has three different light sources: visible, infrared, and ultraviolet. Automated image adjustment, such as cropping and rotating, provides the best result for further document authentication with additional software. Multifunctional features such as barcode reading, touch display, a huge scanning area, and state-of-the-art technology give you the tools to meet today’s demanding security requirements and all future security requirements.

DESKO’s PENTA Scanner® is ideal for visitor registration, including image capture, border control, immigration application, and more.
