MRZ Reading Technology
Read encoded data instantly
Speed up ID verification with a highly accurate and reliable reading of Machine Readable Zone (MRZ).
The MRZ consists of two or three lines in the lower part of an ID document and encloses its owner’s personal data.
Accurate and thorough
MRZ contains machine-readable characters that communicate personal data, as well as transmission message value, known as checksum, that helps detect forgery. With Regula, MRZ data is also automatically cross-checked against other elements, such as passport number.
