How Does It Work
What is included



ID station Read Card works with any camera, even with older ID cameras such as the Sony UPX C200/300 cameras.

If you work with a traditional camera with a memory card it works as follows:
Take a couple of pictures and take out the memory card from the camera and insert it into the ID station. Now tab on the button “Read Card”. The software will read the memory card and will show the images from the card as previews. The images taken last will be shown first. Select a preview by clicking on it. Now just sit back and watch the biometric engine do all the work. It will first process the image and turn it into a perfectly aligned and cropped passport photo. Then it will run a full ICAO compliance and quality check. The results are shown on screen in just a few seconds. Just click on “Print” and in less than 12 seconds the passport photos are ready. Yes, it’s that easy.
