Moisture Discriminating Optics (MDO)

Subjects with wet, moist or sweaty skin don’t have to be a capture nightmare. Guardian Moisture Discriminating Optics (MDO) handle these conditions without time-consuming pretreatment.

Defend against Presentation Attacks

The Guardian line of products includes optional Presentation Attack Detection (PAD). Customers can have peace-of-mind knowing that the readers, using our L Scan Essentials software, can judge when a potential presentation attack is occurring and allow a human to intervene before the transaction is complete.
