idMax is a series of software solutions focused on reading ID documents that can be used with a driver’s license scanner.
idMax can also be configured to read additional document types, for this please see our custom projects section. idMax is very unique due to the fact that we do not rely on other vendor’s OCR engines like our competition which makes our product unique.
We have created our own OCR engine from the ground up and have complete control over the ID card reader software that can be used with a driver’s license or another ID reader or scanner. As a result of owning our own engine, we have been able to attain 10X faster read rates/performance than any other system on the market.
OCR’s development team is constantly working to enhance our capabilities with our driver’s license, smart card reader, and other document scanning software. Working with us, you will also see that we are responsive and a true partner, our award-winning support is unmatched in the industry.
Currently, the idMax software can be used as an ID card reader, driver license reader, and supports reading the following other document types:
OCR offers the fastest and most reliable Mobile SDKs. Both systems process the information on the local device. We offer:
Driver’s License Scanner and ID Reading
Extract data from the front of any ID. idMax has built the fastest most powerful OCR engine that will extract data and scan the driver’s license to the database from any ID in under 2 seconds! Not only will it extract the data but the system is programmed to extract:
Signature (when available)
Passports – Mrz and Viz Data Zones Capture
idMax is the ultimate solution for reading a scanned passport. There are two ways to read a scanned passport and we use both ways! The most common way is the reading of the “MRZ” which stands for “Machine Readable Zone”. If you look at the bottom of any international passport you will see the machine-readable zone that looks like this:
The MRZ has limited information, therefore, we have enabled idMax to also read the full page of international passports which is also referred to as the “VIZ” or Visual Zone”
The VIZ is harder to read but has a lot more information than the MRZ. idMax can also compare information from the MRZ to the OCR captured from the VIZ to assist with document authentication. idMax is unique in its ability to read passports from over 160 countries and counting!
Credit Card Reading – Embossed Card Data Capture
The ability to read embossed characters in OCR technology is extremely challenging. idMax has added this ability at no additional cost in order to give our client a competitive advantage. Send a card image to our software and watch how fast and accurate our system can extract data. Even cards that are difficult to read with your eye are caught by the idMax credit card module. This feature is easily added using our cutting edge SDK.
Barcode reading is a very useful feature for authentication of an ID. Just compare the OCR from the front of an ID to the data captured by it’s 2D (PDF417) barcode. If the information doesn’t match the system will alert the user. This is a great feature for night clubs and liquor sales. idMax can read many barcode types as well should you have a special project try our advanced barcode reading function. The system can read 2D, 1D, and many other barcode types quickly. In the automotive industry our clients use this on a mobile phone to read VIN numbers.
