A whole new dimension of image quality

The ID-1 GO is ushering in a new era of document verification. It scans all ID documents in ID-1 format, such as credit cards, ID cards or driver’s licenses. With precise, high-quality resolution of up to 1,300 dpi, the scanner delivers amazingly high-resolution scans that can go head-to-head with forensic lab images. The scanner outperforms comparable commercial devices by more than twice the resolution. This tremendous image resolution enables zoom views that reveal even the smallest security features, making it possible to draw immediate conclusion about the ID’s authenticity. Manipulations and forgeries are easy to identify based on these details.


ID-1 GO with ingenious single-step process

The scanner sets standards not only due to its extremely high resolution, but also thanks to its impressive speed and functionality with groundbreaking technology. In a matter of seconds, the compact device with high-performance sensors generates six high-quality scans of ID cards or driver’s licenses in ID-1 format under all three light sources: visible light, infrared and UV – all in a single process. Reading out and digitalizing all data in a single-step process hugely facilitates and speeds up verification processes. Apart from document authentication, the scanner also facilitates data capture and data transfer.
