Self Service passport scanner
The RTE8000 SSD is a full page passport scanner designed
for use in self-service kiosks and automated border control
With more and more airline passengers using self-service
kiosks to check-in for international flights, the need for easyto-use but highly accurate passport scanners has never been
greater. The RTE8000 SSD satisfies that need by combining
tried and tested OCR read technology with a full page, lay-on
The passenger simply places their travel document on the scanner glass, holds
it still for a second and then removes it when prompted by a beep or spoken
instruction. The scanner reads passports, visas, national ID cards and many
other travel documents. Documents may be laid on the glass in any orientation
making it easy to use and gaining passenger confidence. Poorly issued visas
which are skewed or stuck upside down on the passport page present no
Ease of use and speed are the most important factors for the passenger but for
the airline, read accuracy and data quality are just as vital. The RTE8000 SSD
achieves industry leading read performance on real-life travel documents, even
those that are poorly printed or have suffered from years of use.
