Advanced ID card validation through color matching reduces check processing risk…

LAS VEGAS – April 15, 2008 – CTS North America is introducing the SB50C, a new compact dual function check/card color scanner here at the KioskCom Self Service Expo (Booth #158) at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The new unit allows ID card color matching for kiosk check deposit applications.

The SB50C is an open frame Microsoft Windows-based peripheral designed to be built into check presentment kiosks. The unit features double-sided reading and scanning of both checks and cards. It couples card and check Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and image scanning with ID card reader color matching capabilities to significantly improve ID card validation.

Typical applications include retail kiosks for bill payment or check cashing, targeting unbanked users.

“The SB50C builds on CTS’ considerable experience in self-service payment systems,” said Alex Trombetta, CTS North America CEO. “With this introduction we are offering a new level of convenience, security, and usability for kiosk builders, retailers and consumers. We have already seen a great deal of interest in the product.”

The unit uses standard mounts and connects to other peripherals via a USB 2.0 interface. It features a reading speed of 420 mm/sec (16.5 in/sec) and supports DIB, JPEG and TIFF image formats. Full specifications are listed at http://www.ctsna.com. The SB50C dual function check/card scanner reader is available through authorized CTS North America resellers and systems integrators.
