Speed Identity's biometrics solution to produce new ID cards for Swedish Tax Authority

Published on 15 March, 2010
Speed Identity’s biometrics solution to provide secure ID cards to Swedish citizens
Part of the supply is biometrics collection equipment, primarily the innovative model Speed Capture Light

Speed Identity AB has received an order from Gemalto AB for the supply of photo and signature capture machines of the type Speed Capture Light for delivery to the Swedish Tax authority.

The equipment will be used for the production of secure ID cards for residents in Sweden, this on behalf of the government.

The equipment will be placed at the tax service offices which will sum up to a hundred offices during 2010. The large number of application areas will mean greatly improved service to citizens who quickly and safely will receive their ID cards.

The background is that the Swedish post office stopped their activities of producing ID cards and the banks only produce ID cards to their own customers. The Tax authority on behalf of the Government will then make sure that all residents in Sweden have access to secure ID cards.

The biometrics model is used in several places in Europe for E-Passport, Visa documents and ID cards

Speed Identity's part of the supply is biometrics collection equipment, primarily the innovative model Speed Capture Light, compact and user-friendly collection of ICAO approved facial images and signatures.

The model is used in several places in Europe for E-Passport, Visa documents and ID cards. One example is Luxembourg, which like the Tax authority has chosen to serve the citizens with a large number of offices for customer convenience, and also has the model Speed Capture Light equipped with fingerprint reading for capturing biometrics for E-Pass and Visa.

Speed Capture Light is suitable for medium sized data collections, in terms of corporate ID card as well as for E-Passport, Visa papers and national ID card.

Speed Capture Light delivers digital pictures in colour and black/white in very high quality thanks to built-in light with the management of Speed Capture Software for image review.
