Live Capture (Biometric)

With identity theft, the proper verification of citizens and travellers has become critical to all countries. With the introduction of stricter international border controls and standards,  Live Capture has come to the forefront in aiding countries to manage and process people accurately and speedily the first time, every time.

BioCapBioCap is a Live Data capture solution built upon a proven multi tier Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) called Annwyn, built for demanding central and decentralized enrolment scenarios. The solution contains various modules providing different functionality that can be combined by the user to create a desired workflow as required for the underlying business logic.

Services to applicants/citizens can be individually defined and customized for every service, user, role, workstation and workflow. Built in quality assurance (QA) measures for all captured data and biometric information, ensure the storage of data in accordance with ANSI / NIST, ICAO and ISO standards and recommendations. The backend application server has all the services built in to provide the entire business logic for a document register, a civil register or even a national population register. It is not limited to specific capture devices and is totally open to operate with any device that a customer requests.
Capture devices include web and digital cameras, fingerprint and palm scanners, iris cameras, A4 flatbed scanners, signature pads, printers etc. BioCap supports online and offline working modes with advanced queuing for flawless synchronization, as well as data & communication encryption by various means. BioCap features a generic printer interface to communicate with passport and ID card printers, and the retrieval of the corresponding datasets to personalize travel and identity documents.

Furthermore it has a biometric identification interface to ensure the integrity of the enrolled persons within the database or register to avoid duplicate enrolments.
