ARH offers reliable and high-speed data reading and verification software for all identity document types worldwide. These software modules are available for each ARH ID and passport scanner models.
This software and SDK comes with each ARH passport reader unit. The software contains 3 sets of tools. Firstly, automatic image processing functions – cropping, face photo cutout, rotation, reflection removal, and Adaptive Light Control. Secondly, data reading tools – standard MRZ as well as 1D and 2D bar codes, and extended RFID reading functionality. Thirdly, it also contains authentication of standardized safety features like MRZ consistency check, B900 ink check, UV dullness check and various printed/digital crosscheck functions.
This software is capable of reading non-standardized text, supporting Latin characters and alphabets using Latin characters with diacritical marks, for example the Slovakian and Romanian alphabet (ă, ď, î, ž, ä, ț and so on). As a custom development, it may even be capable of supporting unique characters like those of the Cyrillic alphabet.
Besides VIZ OCR, this software is capable of checking standard as well as nonstandard security features like pattern checking illuminated by various light sources, geometry analysis and OVI checks according to the characteristics of the given document type.
While ARH’s ID and e-passport scanners autonomously manage the document reading and security procedures, these functions are provided in a form of a Software Development Kit (SDK) – that can be used to create specific end user systems or to incorporate the passport reader in an existing infrastructure. Furnishing the necessary databases and implementing the data transfer are normally the task of our system integrator partners who develop the customized application for the specific end user.
Our SDK offers several demo applications as well, with the aim of having a great testing and demonstration tool, in some cases it even turns out to be the most convenient end-user software in certain applications. However, since every project is different in its scope and requirements, the integrators are encouraged to provide the vital integration in the given project that involves document reading and authentication.
