Anti-Counterfeit Government ID Card System Demonstration at Cards 2010

LaserCard : 23 April, 2010  (New Product)
LaserCard and Thomas Greg and Sons are attending Cards 2010 South America to demonstrate counterfit-resistant ID Solutions for Government markets
LaserCard will join Thomas Greg and Sons, a Latin American provider of security printing, documents and services, at Cards 2010 South America, to jointly present their advanced, counterfeit-resistant government ID solutions. The event will be held April 26-28 in San Paolo, Brazil.

LaserCard will attend Cards 2010 as a guest of Thomas Greg and Sons to showcase its products and professional services and, in particular, a jointly-manufactured multi-technology ID credential solution featuring LaserCard's optical security media combined with micro-controller chips embedded by Thomas Greg. In addition, Dave Oller, Vice President of Sales, Americas, for LaserCard, will present a paper entitled "The Trend toward Multi-Technology Cards in Government ID Programs."

The companies will also exhibit health care ID cards incorporating a combination of advanced security, biometric and storage capacity features that address a number of concerns of the developing electronic health care ID market: patient identification, privacy and information security. The digital security of LaserCard's optical media, which has never been compromised, provides the highest levels of protection for the privacy of patient records while allowing individuals to maintain possession of their clinical information on a single card.

"In our efforts to meet the needs of our government customers, our goal is to be at the forefront of the market in offering new security options," said Luiz Wilson Teixeira da Silva, General Director of Thomas Greg. "LaserCard is world renowned as a leader in secure identity solutions in critical applications, and we are very pleased to be at this event together to demonstrate our joint capabilities in the fight against counterfeiting and forgery of vital documents."

"This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with one of the global leaders in security printing and documentation," said Bob DeVincenzi, president and CEO of LaserCard. "Our aim during Cards 2010 South America is to illustrate some of the ground-breaking solutions available to governments and organizations in this region as they upgrade the security and functionality of their official documentation. There is a growing worldwide trend for governments and enterprises to combine the most effective technologies in a new generation of secure credentials in order to meet today's needs for enhanced security, strong tamper- and counterfeit-resistance, on-board storage, convenience, and service delivery.

"LaserCard's unique ability to combine contact and contactless chips, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, and optical security media into a single multi-application ID card makes use of the strengths of the individual technologies to deliver greater security, functionality and value," continued DeVincenzi.

This new collaboration with Thomas Greg reflects LaserCard's continuing drive to address the varied needs of the government ID market, with its leading edge applications and technologies. It also underscores LaserCard's expanding activities in Latin America, which includes the supply of the foreign resident ID card management and issuance program for Costa Rica.
