Pen-Input Device Captures Signatures For Network Applications

Used to sign electronic documents and forms, authorize electronic transactions and access signature-based security systems, the ePad is a pen-input device for use in emerging network enterprise applications. The unit uses a pressure-sensitive input pad and is ergonomically designed to emulate the feel of signing on paper.When used with its pen-input software, the ePad captures signatures on the fly and easily inserts them into Microsoft Word documents. The device goes beyond simply capturing signatures by reporting the line shape and stylus pressure needed to electronically bind and biometrically verify them. Signature binding- the affixing and time-stamping of an electronic signature to a document- is used to authenticate documents with a legally binding handwritten digital signature.The ePad is based on the company's VersaPad input pad, which accepts pen input using any common stylus.
