signotec Alpha - Signature Pad A4 full-colour LCD
Use signotec Alpha to accurately capture the signature on a stationary system with a large 39.5cm (15.6") color display, perfect for viewing documents in original size.
The signotec Alpha Signature Pad is designed for applications where it is important to be able to read complete documents before signing them. A4-documents are displayed in their original size. With the pen you can browse through the pages. It is the ideal solution for banks, government agencies as well as for companies where complex documents must be read before signing.
However, the technique used is unique. Unlike other 15.6-inch devices on the market, the signotec Alpha is a true signature pad and not a simple monitor extension. It has the same SDK as all other signotec Signature Pads and is also integrated in all applications. What are the advantages of this? As an integrator and developer, you can fully interact with the pad: Download PDF documents to the pad, create your own graphics, images and texts, create buttons and capture the signature in various formats. At the same time, you benefit from the highest security standards when collecting and transferring signature data.
To make the displayed content remain private, the device is provided with a "privacy viewing technology". Thanks to that the content is protected against prying eyes, because the viewing angle is limited.
Large pen pads are highly sought after by users who want to display complex documents that have to be signed. Delivery notes with several items or multi-page contracts that you can scroll are just two examples. Standard pen pads are just too small for this. While there are already large devices on the market that enable signing, these are usually just monitor extensions where the signer still sees all the other applications running on it.
Even the requirement of the written form, which is e.g. essential for loan agreements, can be fulfilled with the signotec Alpha Pad:
The signee places the original document on the Pad and then signs both, the original and the digital document, simultaneously via digital blueprint.
If the paper document is not required as a result of the principle of freedom of contract, the ballpoint pen cartridge can simply be replaced with a plastic one.

The signotec signature pads can be integrated into your system environment via various connection types.
USB Citrix Ready Network
Basically, the signotec Signature Pads all have a USB port, which supplies the devices with power and additionally ensures a manipulation-proof and encrypted data transmission with the PC or notebook.
The signature pad can be used with the Virtual Channel driver in Citrix environments. In contrast to classic COM port mapping, this is a very fast and stable connection technology. Both USB and vCOM pads are supported.
The signature pad has a built-in Ethernet port (RJ45). In this way, the device can be integrated in the network and controlled from multiple workstations without having to reposition it.
The signotec signature pads can be used or integrated with various software products.
Capture a signature as an image
To capture the signature as an image, you can use the free "signoPAD-Tools". The signature can be saved in various formats, sizes, resolutions and colors and e.g. (automatically) be inserted into Word.
If you want to sign PDF documents and forms legally compliant and verifiable, you can use signotec "signoSign/2". signoSign/2 offers besides the possibility to sign PDF documents many features to process the document automatically. More information can be found on the linked product page.
Many software products already support signotec signature pads. You can request this directly from your software provider.
As a software developer / integrator, you can integrate the signotec signature pads via various interfaces into local or web-based applications. You will find more in the section "Software -> Developer (SDK / API)".

The signotec signature pads have the highest security mechanisms* available. This allows a complete chain of evidence in dispute. Depending on the integration, different techniques are used:
- PDF documents** can be signed inside the pad and not in the insecure environment of the PC.
- The biometric data of the signature can be RSA-encrypted inside the pad using a public key.
- RSA-signature of the displayed content and signature.
- Upon delivery, each pad has a separate and unique RSA certificate for signing.
- Storing of custom RSA-certificates inside the pad.
- The pad can generate a RSA certificate.
- Supported schemes are RSA PKCS # 1 v1.5 (with or without the hash OID), PKCS # 1 v2.1
- Certificates can be certified by a Root Authority
- Supported hash algorithms are SHA-1, SHA-256 and SHA-512.
For details please refer to the documentation.
* The security features only refer to the signature capture via signotec signature pads. Other functionalities of hybrid devices (eg NFC or fingerprint) may have deviating security standards.
** One of our paid signature applications is required to sign PDF documents. For Windows we recommend our software "signoSign/2".
