Has anyone started using Simulscan for Passports?

Is it possible to accurately read passports and import the picture and data with Simulscan?  I assume different countries have different passport formats but I would love to get a demo working for the Cruise lines.


I heard they have Panasonic working on reading passports and they have been working on it for over a year.

Only the MRZ [Machine Readable Zone] data will be returned to the calling application and not the picture of the passport itself.

Hope this helps,
