Portable Solution for Wireless ID Card and Passport Reading

DESKO's flexible document reader IDenty chrom mobile provides a mobile solution for ID card and passport reading completely independent from any fixed workstation. Due to its integrated wireless Bluetooth® technology, it communicates with your application on a computer or tablet. Just pull the ID document through the swipe slot. The IDenty chrom mobile reads the information and transfers it automatically to the application. Within a second, the required customer data appears on the display.

By default equipped with an integrated battery pack, the IDenty chrom mobile can be operated independently from an external power supply.

All of these features allow for a quick, convenient and secure data collection directly on the spot.
