Safran Identity & Security launches 2nd generation biometric tablet: MorphoTablet 2

Safran Identity & Security, world leader in identity and security solutions, launches its MorphoTablet™ 2. It is a unique, multi-functional tablet which delivers high accuracy biometric acquisition and matching, whenever a mobile solution is needed.

2nd generation biometric tablet: MorphoTablet™ 2MorphoTablet 2 builds upon the multiple successes of its predecessor, used in a variety of applications and markets throughout the world. These range from civil registration and election programs in Africa, time & attendance and border control operations in Europe and electronic customer registration (eKYC*) procedures in Asia.

With greater features than its predecessor, this touchscreen Android device now offers 4G high speed data transfer. Its 13 mega-pixel camera with dual illumination system captures high definition portraits in poor lighting conditions and read barcodes and passport Machine Readable Zones (MRZ).

The compact biometric tablet provides enhanced usability and robustness and opens a wide spectrum of use cases for on-the-spot identity verification: travelers at borders, voters in polling stations, drivers, employees clocking in/out, students passing an exam, patients receiving care, etc. This is enabled by Safran’s world leading fingerprint and facial algorithms which deliver fast “one-to-many” on device matching, against large databases stored in the device’s internal memory, and by a complete e-document (contact and contactless) reading capability: e-passports, ID cards, driving licenses and corporate badges.

It is delivered with either a proprietary suite of applications or a SDK (Software Development Kit) for integrators to custom build applications.

Egypt was the very first country to benefit at a large scale from the multiple assets of our first generation biometric tablet, during the latest electoral programs. We are extremely proud to introduce here our new MorphoTablet 2. It will help both public and private institutions prevent identity fraud and provide even faster, more secure and innovative proximity services to citizens and customers.
Anne Bouverot, Chair and CEO of Safran Identity & Security

The new mobile secure ID device will be on display at the Cairo ICT 2016 exhibition in Egypt, from 27 to 30 of November.

* eKYC or electronic “Know Your Customer” is the paperless process of a business verifying electronically the identity of its clients.
