The device performs world's fastest image scan rate of over 20 frames per second using powerful internal DSP and image processing technology.

"RealScan series ten-print slap scanners have been specially developed to meet high-level requirements for India's UID project which demands fast and high quality image capturing and extra durability in India's harsh environments. The device features dust and waterproof rugged structure with IP54 certification required by UIDAI," said Young S. Moon, Vice President at Suprema. "Key technology in our live scanners is based on our in-depth expertise in biometrics and image processing as well as our years of experience in large-scale government and public projects," Young added.
