Laxton Group to Launch Chameleon D at ID4Africa 2019

17 June 2019 – Laxton will launch the ChameleonD at ID4Africa 2019 taking place from 18-20 June at Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Chameleon D is an addition to the Chameleon Biometrics family of products in the form factor of an integrated, multi-modal biometric desktop device.

“The ChameleonD, true to the fundamentals of the Chameleon brand, is highly configurable and without question the most adaptable integrated desktop device in the world. It will further bolster the highly successful Chameleon8 and Chameleon5 product ranges” says Nick Perkins, President of EMEA for Laxton.

As a company originally founded in South Africa in 2004, this is an exciting time to be part of the ID4Africa movement as countries throughout Africa continue to adopt biometric technology and harmonize their identity systems.

Laxton has a long and successful history in Africa having delivered large scale Election & Identity solutions in Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. We are proud to have played a role in the delivery of some of the first biometric voter registration and national identity databases in Africa and look forward to continue implementing such systems throughout this region.

Laxton will showcase the complete range of Chameleon multi-modal biometric devices, including those aligned to the European EES (European Entry Exit System), as well as Mass Registration and Live Capture Projects, specifically the Chameleon 8 Slap, which is additionally used for mobile passport/ID biometric verification.

Laxton’s software solutions and Chameleon devices are tailored to a wide range of civil ID identity registration, identity authentication, law enforcement, border control, election, and know-your-customer applications.

We look forward to welcoming all visitors to our Booth F01 at ID4Africa 2019.
