The Snapshell FDA Camera Scanner from Card Scanning Solutions combines Card Scanning Solutions’ scanning and OCR technology with Digimarc’s IDMarc digital watermark reading technology to authenticate IDs using embedded tamperproof digital watermarks. IDMarc digital watermarking is a covert security feature found in more than 60 million U.S. driver’s licenses and IDs today; it contains digital data woven into the artwork of the card that is imperceptible to the human eye. The Snapshell FDA is equipped with special software that can quickly read IDMarc digital watermarks and determine if a card has been tampered with in any way, including swapping a photo or changing a birth date. The Snapshell FDA use a 3-megapixel camera built into its base to “snap” high-quality digital images of ID cards (up to 600 dpi), populating the card’s text into appropriate fields within 2 to 3 sec. while simultaneously authenticating the watermark.
