The PAL-ID1 is a specialized ID-document scanner used to capture images and data from driver-license-sized (ICAO ID-1) documents for use with the PALIDIN™ ID Document Authentication software:
  • More than 1,100 US state-issued Identification Documents (e.g. Driver Licenses & Identification Cards) 
  • Federally issued Identification Documents (e.g. Military IDs, Green Cards, TWIC cards, Congressional ID's, )
  • More than 180 countries' Government-issued Identification Documents (e.g. driver licenses & national ID cards)

Advantages and key features:
  • A simple one-step process: Insert a driver license into the front feeder and wait for the results to be displayed
  • Ability to integrate data via Software Development Kit (SDK)
  • Checks multiple data and security points on identity documents in both visible and infrared (IR) light

• What types of documents can the PAL-ID1 authenticate?

The PAL-ID1 is designed for authenticating ID documents. It is designed to automatically identify and authenticate ID-1 documents, an international (ICAO) standard-sized ID document. In the U.S., ID-1 includes drivers’ licenses, state ID cards, military ID’s, Green cards and a variety of other similarly-sized government-issued ID cards that people use as proof of identity. Internationally, ID-1 will also include many National ID cards, voter registration cards, diplomatic cards, passport cards and other ID documents.

• What environments can the PAL-ID1 be used in?

The PAL-ID1 has a very small footprint so it is perfect for environments where space is limited. It is ideal for locations where the vast majority of customers will be presenting ID cards rather than passports or other non-ID-documents.

A Windows-based PC is required for standard installations. Custom installations allow the use of thin clients in the .NET framework with centralized processing of licenses and data at server-level.

• How does the PAL-ID1 work?

The PAL-ID1 is a hardware/software platform that captures high-resolution, full color images of the ID document using both natural and infrared sources. The device also “reads” information from barcode and digital watermarks.

After the PAL-ID1 captures the images and the data, the PALIDIN™ software application performs multiple security checks using a comprehensive database of ID documents. Multiple points on the document are checked to make certain that proper manufacturing technique was used, and that the document itself contains the proper design elements. The data captured from different locations on the document are cross-checked to make sure that information such as name, birth date, issue date, expiration date, etc. all match.

When the application is finished, it will display either a “pass” or “fail” grade.

Data and images captured from the ID document may be treated by the user. The PALIDIN™ Software Development Kit enables customization of the data management, including potential exporting of the data to third-party databases and core enterprise applications.
