Aratek Marshall launched for ePassports


Biometric firm Aratek has launched the Marshall, an all-in-one biometric handheld device designed to help immigration authorities implement tighter border control measures with its MRZ reading capability for ePassports and other travel documents.

Aratek’s flagship device features the Access-IS OCR310e miniature OCR reading engine which captures code lines from machine readable passports (MRP), visas (MRV), US and international resident permits as well as European and other national ID cards conforming to ICAO 9303 & ISO/IEC 7501-1 (2 and 3-line MRZ).

“Security concerns have made border control a top priority for many countries. The Aratek Marshall comes with MRZ reading capability allowing immigration authorities to effect stricter border controls,” said Samuel Wu, Aratek’s VP for Sales, International Business Dept.

“Authorities will find that their ability to apprehend fugitives and reduce terror incidents within the country will be greatly enhanced with the Marhsall’s ePassport-reading capability,” Wu added.

Wu noted that Access-IS’s OCR310e miniature OCR reading engine is the perfect choice for the Marshall for its compact package, speed, accuracy, easy integration and the flexibility offered by its ability to read a wide variety documents. “We are pleased to have found a suitable partner in Access-IS.  Its proven and superior OCR technology is just what the Marshall needs to gain an instant and reliable MRZ capability to make it even more useful in more applications” Wu said.

The Marshall integrates registration, matching, printing, and other functions into one portable module which can be deployed practically anywhere. Built-in printing capability makes it indispensable in many off-site applications.

It is also a powerful and complete solution that seamlessly integrates with various FBI-certified fingerprint scanners such as FAP20, FAP30, or FAP 45, giving customers the utmost flexibility to perform identification and authentication for any application regardless of location.
