Hologram based authentication patents acquired by TSSI Systems

TSSI Systems : 23 September, 2009  (Company News)
The Magnetic Solutions Division of TSSI has purchased patents covering hologram technology for document authentication and anti-counterfeiting
TSSI has announced the acquisition of a portfolio of patents for specialist volume and true colour holograms which include Biometrigram and HD-3D hologram patents from Ver-tec, the authentication security technology and consultation company. The move follows the recent launch of TSSI's Magnetics Solutions Division, which aims to drive growth across TSSI's document security and brand protection products.

Counterfeiters are becoming increasingly sophisticated, producing highly realistic ID documents. Additional security measures are therefore required to provide the highest level of protection possible and ensure that ID documents such as passports, ID cards and access cards cannot be replicated. Hologram technology provides an effective security solution for all identity documents as each hologram is unique making it impossible to imitate.

HD-3D is a true colour hologram, meaning the images always maintain their original colours from any viewing angle, unlike embossed holograms which exhibit a rainbow effect. Each hologram is unique with different serial numbers and/or bar codes, which can also be encrypted for added security.

The Biometrigram, a volume hologram, can store multiple biometrics as well as analogue images and encrypted digital information. These have a higher information density than electronic chips so are ideal for use on ID cards. Each hologram is unique so ensures the correct identity of the document holder and provides an effective security measure in the fight against identity fraud.

Ian Elver, Business Development Director, TSSI, commented: "My appointment as General Manager came at an extremely exciting time in the history of TSSI. The creation of the Magnetics Solutions Division and the acquisition of Ver-tec patents along with our back to basics approach regarding contract coating see us turning a corner. It positions us as a serious contender in the supply of products to help fight counterfeiting and fraud."

Danny Chapchal, Executive Chairman, TSSI Systems said: "The acquisition of HD-3D and Biometrigram follows the recent launch of our new Magnetics Solutions Division. Both of these products are a welcome addition to our portfolio of market leading identity and document security offerings, enhancing our position as the preferred supplier in this security area. Our customers want top quality security solutions and these new patents will meet this increased demand for fraud proof identity documents."
