Speed Identity, leaders in biometric data capture for high-security identity documents, has been awarded a new contract for passport enrollment equipment which will be delivered to the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board. The fleet of Speed Capture B1000 enrollment systems is extended to a total of 20 units with deployment at several new sites, thereby making passport application and enrollment available nationwide for Estonian citizens.

In the previous tender five years ago, Speed Identity was awarded the contract thanks to its ability to deliver uniform, high-quality and ICAO-compliant photography at competitive cost to the customer.
Estonia has received international recognition for early adoption of the e-passport standard as well as for their high security standards in the issuance process and document itself.
Tough requirements for passport photo resulted in implementation of a photo-booth solution delivering maximum control over the illumination while reducing the sensitivity to ambient light.
The B1000 is a robust product with aesthetic design, with a proven track record with national authorities in Estonia and Sweden.
“The new contract confirms our position as quality leader in Live Enrollment. With many customers looking for lowest-cost solutions, we are happy that the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board maintain their focus on high-quality photography and document integrity. We are very pleased with the trust placed on our products and organization and we look forward to the extended cooperation,” says Magnus Löfgren, CEO, Speed Identity.
