KIGALI, RWANDA – May 25, 2016 – Credence ID launches the world’s first fully integrated 10” Mobile Biometric Tablet – including eID and advanced ePassport readers
Partners Showcase Platform at ID 4 Africa’s Annual Forum & Expo on Electronic Identity
Credence ID, a specialist in mobile biometrics and credential reading, today announced the launch of CredenceTAB™, a full-
featured 10 inch mobile biometric and credential reading tablet, that enables rapid registration, verification and authentication of user identities from any location. It combines enrolment-capable biometrics with a complete e-document reading suite for electronic ID verification.
CredenceTAB enables police, border control and other authorities to confirm identities on the move, supports highly reliable citizen and voter registration and authentication, and helps banks and other enterprises implement effective “Know Your Customer” (KYC) procedures, using fingerprints and national identity documents such as eIDs and ePassports.
The design and features of the CredenceTAB are based on detailed and exhaustive analysis of key customer demands and the cooperative integration of the engineering expertise of Credence ID partner companies. Key features include a high resolution, 10 inch, multi-touch, outdoor readable display to facilitate ergonomic data entry and a rich user interface, complimented by a rugged FBI PIV FAP-30 TFT/LES fingerprint scanner that accurately captures in all lighting conditions and meets the requirements for large scale identification for civil biometric programs. Fully configured, the Credence TAB includes a contact and contactless smart card reader as well as a non-swipe MRZ reader complete with ability to read new ePassports. Front and rear facing cameras with dual illumination for ICAO compliant face capture completes the CredenceTAB.
“Secure, reliable and comprehensive enrollment and ID verification are the foundations of new voting processes, border controls and customer onboarding. In the private sector, the tablet will provide robust protection against fraudulent ID attempts, such as opening new SIM card registrations or bank accounts, thanks to the combined usage of eIDs and ePassports. In healthcare, it can help ensure only eligible patients can access care and modern services,” said Lionel Jean, Vice President, Integration, Consulting & Services Director of Gemalto Government Programs.
CredenceTAB enables partners to manage large scale mobile enrollment programs and electronic ID verification solutions. In particular, the company is involved in multiple national projects in Africa, where registering citizens in difficult remote locations is typically a major challenge. The tablet is ideally suited to such demands, creating a highly portable enrolment station for elections and registration programs, providing irrefutable identity verification during election processes and an essential tool for management of polling results.
“CredenceID and its key partners share an ambitious vision for the future of mobile identification. At Credence, we are focused on creating elegant and effective products packed with biometric and credential capabilities that can empower the 1.8 billion people currently enrolled in eID programs around the world. Our common goal is to secure individual identity and give voice to these people. With CredenceTAB, we can offer more functionality to bring about the changes needed to shape the future of mobile identification,” said Bruce Hanson, President and CEO of Credence ID.
