Digimarc has launched three new secure enrollment products for government ID issuers that will digitally capture and manage portraits, signatures, and fingerprints while speeding up the enrollment process and providing more security features.
Newest advances in Digimarc’s secure enrollment solutions reliably and securely capture, store and manage the industry’s highest quality digital images for biometric and secure ID applications
Beaverton, Ore.– Digimarc Corporation launched the next generation of Digimarc secure enrollment products – the Digimarc Camera Tower, Digimarc Capture Software, and Digimarc Image Server – to digitally capture and manage the industry’s highest quality portraits, clear signatures, and reliable fingerprints while delivering low total cost of ownership (TCO) to ID issuers. Together, these products securely capture, store and serve up the biometric images needed by driver license and other government ID issuers for card production, renewals, fraud investigation, and more.
Portraits, signatures, fingerprints, and facial biometrics are an increasingly important means of identifying an ID applicant, personalizing a secure ID, and preventing and investigating potential fraud cases. High quality images ensure reliable facial and fingerprint recognition, and result in high quality secure credentials.
Digimarc is a leader in secure enrollment solutions and has more than 20 years of experience providing digital image capture solutions for secure IDs. Built from this experience, the Digimarc Camera Tower, Capture Software and Image Server products are designed for long life and reliable operation while meeting the demands of today’s secure ID enrollment process.
Each secure ID issuer has different workflow requirements. Digimarc secure enrollment products are built on open standards and designed for easy integration with each other and the issuer’s enterprise IT architecture. Together, these products are fully configurable to an issuer’s business rules and workflow, including photo first, photo last, or photo anywhere – enabling an applicant’s photo to be taken anywhere in the issuer’s enrollment process.
“Our driver license and ID issuing customers routinely deal with busy citizens who are looking for fast service and pictures they are happy carrying for the next 4 or more years. In addition, issuers are faced with complying with REAL ID regulations, such as the requirement to digitally capture and store applicant data,” said J. Scott Carr, executive vice president, Digimarc Corp. “Digimarc’s newest generation of secure enrollment products enable driver license issuers to keep their customers happy and lines moving with an integrated solution that consistently delivers the industry’s best pictures and will provide the issuer with nearly maintenance-free operation and low total cost of ownership.”
