Watson Mini is the world’s first optical scanner using IB’s patented LES technology instead of a traditional glass prism, meaning fast, high-quality images without the need to clean between finger rolls. It comes with a full featured SDK to enable effective integration into applications requiring certified quality images. The Watson Mini can also cost effectively perform all requirements common in ten print enrollment applications.
