As a Classical Component, the user experience can be additionally adjusted to your requirements. The MRZ reader for Android is available in package II and III and compliant with the GDPR, DSGVO, and CCPA.

  • Support for all major standards of passports (td-3, td-2), id cards (td-1), and visa (MRV-A, MRV-B)
