Thales Cogent LiveScan Software

Live scan


Live scan fingerprinting solutions

Livescan is an electronic means of capturing fingerprints and palm prints in a digital format. This format can then be stored and transmitted to related authorities. ​​

Thales Cogent's LiveScan Software offers the ability to quickly and easily collect multi-biometric and biographical data for offender booking, identity verification, and civil enrolment. 

The intuitive interface makes it easy to learn with minimal training. Workflows are optimized and customizable, allowing users to process transactions efficiently so that they can focus on higher priority tasks.

Users are guided through the capture process with on-screen prompts and graphical user interface displays. 

Quality live scan

The data entry process is simplified through the use of drop-down menus, not only speeding up the capture process but reducing operator error. 

There's more.

Real-time quality checks, sequence verification, auto-center, and auto-contrast functions are built-in, ensuring the capture of high-quality biometric images.

Part of the Thales Cogent LiveScan System, the software can be integrated into portable, desktop, and cabinet configurations that feature FBI-certified 500ppi and 1000ppi palm print and tenprint scanners.
