Livescan Solutions

3M Cogent features a full range of 500 and 1,000 ppi resolution FBI-certified LiveScan tenprint and palm print scanners that feature high-definition for forensic-quality rolled or flat image capture.

High-Speed Document Scanner

The only FBI certified scanner with the ability to scan both sides of the image simultaneously at 1,000 ppi, it is ideal for agencies looking to quickly eliminate fingerprint card back-logs. Versatile, this solution can also be used to convert palm prints, photos, and text documents into high-quality 500 ppi and 1,000 ppi electronic records at 256 grayscale level.

Child ID Software

A fast, easy, inkless, and secure way for agencies to provide parents with their child's vital information at their fingertips. The child's demographic information, parent's contact information, and the child's fingerprint and facial image are compiled in a report that can be printed and/or saved to a CD-ROM disc for the parent.
