Transform the Conventional Border Control Process
Highly professional forensic experts are an integral part of the document authenticity verification procedures that are required at border control checkpoints. However, the presence of forensic experts at every minor checkpoint is economically unprofitable and irrational in terms of human resources.
For instance, there are around 330 points of entry throughout the USA: seaports, airports, and land crossings. Every year, this number is growing, as more and more travelers necessitate more ports of entry. Naturally, this increases the necessity to ensure security.
With such a large number of checkpoints, the best solution is to implement remote authenticity examination procedures. Regional border checkpoints can transfer document images to forensic experts stationed at one or more central laboratories, which can be anywhere in the world. There, forensic experts can decide on the validity of a particular document by examining a digitized version. However, such analysis requires a powerful device that can precisely capture images in various light sources and send them along with the image capture parameters. In this case, the high-resolution photospectral scanner Regula 8880 will come in handy. It captures high-quality images at a resolution of 3401 ppi in white, UV, and IR light sources, and stores metadata about the image capture parameters.
How Regula 8880 Improves the Concept of In-Depth Border Control
Boosts the quality of document checks
The quality of second-line verifications at regional checkpoints will rise to the level of the best experts in the border control service. Even the smallest checkpoints can get access to expert knowledge via the high-resolution scanner.
Optimizes human resources
The system optimizes staff utilization, as all the most professional experts will be concentrated in the central laboratory. At the same time, all checkpoints will be connected and can freely share images with metadata.
Superior image quality
Regula 88XX captures images of documents in different light sources at ultra-high resolution (up to 3401 ppi) with one single click. Regula 8880 is equipped with a 187 MP camera with a field of view of 190×127 mm.
Integrated Regula IRS
Exposed counterfeits and rare documents can be digitized and added to the Information Reference System for further use at border checkpoints.
Boost Border Control Security for the Whole Country
With Regula 8880, you can build a fully connected chain of border control checkpoints at different levels, which can boost the border control security of the whole country. Let even your junior staff take high-resolution photos of a questioned document: Regula 8880 will instantly capture them in different light sources. Then, all the images with forensic experts at the central laboratory. There, the experts can remotely assist in deciding whether documents look like counterfeits or not.

What Our Customers Say
The remote border control system by Regula facilitates second-line document authenticity verification and contributes to the efficient allocation of high-level forensic expert resources. It also enhances the overall security of border crossings. In the near future, we are planning to build up a whole chain of border checkpoints that can perform this type of document verification. We are pleased to have been the first ones to challenge themselves to try out such a smart change in the border security sector
"As a user of the comparator Regula 4308, I've discovered numerous advantages in operating this equipment. One standout feature is the ability to adjust the height of the top camera, which allows for greater amplitude and facilitates the examination of specific document properties. Additionally, the Regula database is highly comprehensive and loaded with images in different light sources and valuable information about documents. Spectrometer handling is simple and effective which streamlines the examination of checks and allows for detailed analysis aimed to detect possible irregularities or forgeries. I also appreciate that the Regula 4308 has an integrated computer, so I only need a monitor to work efficiently. In addition to these advantages, the Regula 4308 also offers features that are highly beneficial for my work. For example, it has a 3D module that allows me to perform examinations of strokes when analyzing signatures. And it is invaluable in my authentication tasks. The comprehensive set of functions and light sources provided by the video spectral comparator eliminates the need for other devices—now I carry out all investigations with just the Regula 4308. Finally, I would like to highlight the exceptional technical support offered by the Regula company. They provide us with direct and competent assistance, which is essential for resolving any issues we may have
