idScan® Kiosk

idScan® Kiosk is an integration module for kiosk developers, which makes it very easy to incorporate the idScan technology into third-party applications. The Kiosk can run in the background and be controlled by other applications, making it completely transparent to the end user.

For every scan, the Kiosk will create four files on the target hard drive:
  • A full ID image.
  • Face image containing a passport-like picture of the individual from the card.
  • A signature image with a small image of the signature only.
  • Comma delimited text file with the ID information.
The third-party application will simply grab the four files directly to its own database application.

idScan® Kiosk contains many hidden options to suit variety of working modes. Some of these options are invoked using special command line parameters and some by changing the default values in the application configuration file. Triggering these options modify the main application GUI, expose hidden configuration screens, activates system tray icon and even cause idScan to interact with other current running applications in Windows.
