What is ID  |  Analyze?

ID  |  Analyze is a technical tool which provides support when working with identification documents.

This complete system for analyzing identification documents comprises the document verification device PENTA Scanner® and the application ID  |  Analyze. It provides effective support for registration authorities, immigration authorities, registry offices or licensing authorities for identity document verification.

The PENTA Scanner® reads various national and international identification documents such as passports, ID cards, residence permits and other identity documents in a matter of seconds and generates images of the documents beneath various light sources. The results of the scan are displayed clearly in the ID  |  Analyze application.

Discrepancies pointing to a possible manipulation or falsification of the presented document are identified and displayed in a manner easily understood by the user. The results and images can optionally be saved for further processing in the form of a report.

Working with ID | Analyze offers an additional level of security and relieves the users’ everyday work.

How does ID | Analyze work?

The easy handling of the PENTA Scanner® and the intuitive design of the ID  |  Analyze user interface enable a simple use for anyone. After placing a document on the scanner, features that indicate possible forgery or manipulation are displayed clearly within just a few seconds.

This is how easy the document verification works with the PENTA Scanner® and ID  |  Analyze:

1. Scan the document

Simply place the ­identification document on the device's scanning surface. Scans and checks are carried out entirely automatically.

Why are additonal functions useful?

Document review is becoming more and more complex because ID documents are becoming more and more complex. ID|Analyze helps you with a number of additional functions to simplify these complex tests. Regardless of whether you mainly deal with national or international documents: ID | Analyze provides you with a reliable and understandable analysis of all data.


Many international ID documents have a barcode. With ID|Analyze you can decipher these machine-readable codes and display the data records.

With READ ID you will for the first time be able to supplement information from the MRZ with information from the so-called "visual zone" (VIZ) - i. e. the visible area of a document, since READ ID is able to recognize and read text fields outside of the MRZ and reproduce them as they are actually displayed on the document. You can use READ ID to easily determine, for example, whether the information from MRZ and VIZ matches - or whether a manipulated document may be present in the event of a deviation. Use this additional level of security to get clear results even faster when reviewing documents.
