Gemalto Document Reader AT10K


Designed for the most demanding authentication and identification scenarios

The new Gemalto Document Reader AT10K allows users to inspect, authenticate and capture data from electronic travel and identity documents quickly and reliably. Designed for use in the most demanding scenarios such as border management, banking, hospitality and travel where speed is just as important as accuracy and reliability.

With its small size and stylish looks the AT10K meets all your document reading requirements.​

Intuitive design

Based on an exhaustive analysis of real-life scenarios, the AT10K includes an LED "landing light" feedback that guides the user to properly place documents regardless if the user is left or right handed. The lights show a progress bar that informs the user that the reader is processing and when it will finish which is then followed by a clear red cross or green tick indicating the document can be removed. This has been proven to improve first time read rates especially for infrequent users which reduces frustration and reduces queue times, increasing the reputation of your company.

The reader also features a new document spine hold down clip that holds down passport books and works on multiple, stapled books. The reader's document hood is easily removable to allow for cell phone and tablet reading or use with gloved hands..

Details of the AT10K OEM for integrators


​​​​For integrators we have a special model the Gemalto OEM Document Reader AT10K which is designed with a low profile and simple shape to make it ideal for integration with self-service kiosks, counters and eGates at airports and other locations such as railway and cruise terminals. The OEM model inspects and images travel documents, including electronic travel documents and 1D and 2D barcodes used by the airline industry on boarding pas​ses and cell phones.

The design of the OEM AT10K is based on new research using inexperienced passengers found in a self-service environment. Along with detailed and exhaustive analysis of field experience and numerous deployed projects Gemalto has designed a new "landing light" LED feedback arrangement which naturally encourages the correct placement and use of the reader increasing the first time read rate even when used by infrequent or hesitant travelers.

The virtually flat top with new user instruction decals and no hood makes the reading area clearly visible when presenting a paper or cell phone boarding pass or passport. ​
