ID Capture provides the capability to scan personal identification documents, such as identity cards, passports or visas.

The mode offers a unified interface to extract information from:

  • Human-readable texts, for example a Visual Inspection Zone (VIZ) of a Machine Readable Travel Document (MRTD)

  • Machine Readable Zones (MRZ) of MRTDs

  • Barcodes, such as PDF417 on US and Canada driver licenses

To provide this functionality ID Capture builds on top of other Scandit Data Capture SDK modules like Barcode Capture or Text Capture.

Using ID Capture at the same time as other modes (e.g. Barcode Capture or Text Capture) is currently not supported.
