In keeping with its tradition of cutting-edge driver’s license scanning products, Card Scanning Solutions announced its newest product-line addition—the Snapshell IDR Camera Scanner.

The Snapshell IDR camera scanner is a revolutionary new tool for capturing driver’s license information quickly and accurately. Powered by software featuring optical character recognition to accurately read cards from all 50 states and over 30 international countries, the Snapshell IDR uses a three mega-pixel 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 two to three seconds. The easy-to-use Snapshell IDR scanner uses a USB 2.0 connection and features no moving parts while requiring no calibration, making it a low maintenance solution that allows users to simply place their card face down on the window and allow the system to do the rest.

The Snapshell IDR’s innovative geometric design features a small footprint that makes it a convenient desktop tool while its easy integration into kiosks provides a time- and cost-effective means of automating information collection.  The scanner can come bundled with Card Scanning Solutions’ IdScan or Scanshell.net modular software, or can be used with an SDK for smooth integration into third-party software.

The Snapshell IDR is the smart data collection choice for front desk registration, access control and visitor management needs, self-service kiosks or within any arena that requires the collection and maintenance of ID data. With comprehensive coverage of government-issued identification, its fast total processing time and its OCR accuracy, the Snapshell IDR scanning system will automate the data-collection process, making the inefficiency of manual data collection and record-keeping obsolete.
