PENTA Scanner® BPV

Boarding Pass Scanner For TSA Check Points

DESKO was among the first companies to introduce Boarding Pass Validation technology (BPV). Since then, many airlines have successfully used DESKO BPV technology. DESKO BPV technology reads signed or unsigned BCBPs from tickets, home print-outs, smartphones, and tablets. The DESKO PENTA Scanner® BPV is very easy to use and the standard industry solution for TSA check points for many more years to come because of its state-of-the-art scan technology, flatbed design, and future-proof features like NFC and WLAN. Always count on the DESKO PENTA Scanner® and DESKO BPV technology.
