Baseball personnel to be issued AuthentiGuard security badges

Document Security Systems : 16 August, 2007  (Application Story)
Identity management in major league baseball to be managed using AuthentiGuard technology on staff identity cards.
Document Security Systems has announced that through its Plastic Printing Professionals (P3) subsidiary and its Premier Partner, TransTech Systems and its integrator partners, the Company has won a new agreement to deliver secure plastic identification products to Major League Baseball, its playoffs, and World Series.
Document Security began its relationship with TransTech Systems (TransTech) in late 2006. TransTech, a leading distributor in the ID badge and access control markets, services a network of over 700 security products dealers throughout the United States and holds the exclusive distribution rights of DSS technology when used for large format event identification badges and cards.
Earlier this year TransTech's integrator partners provided P3 products to Major League Baseball (MLB) including Uniformed Personnel identifications, Designated Guest badges, Major League Scout IDs, Photo ID cards, and credentials for the Major League Baseball All-Star game. The development of these products has also allowed P3 and TransTech to introduce the DSS AuthentiGuard security product suite to MLB.
For the upcoming MLB Playoffs and World Series events, P3 will be implementing AuthentiGuard Prism on the event credentials, a security feature that enables immediate onsite verification and prevents unauthorized duplication or forgeries. The badges will be used for varying levels of access throughout the events and will be issued to members of the press, players, staff and other designated guests.
Peter Ettinger, President of DSS, commented, "Our partnership with TransTech continues to demonstrate the commitment DSS and our Premier Partners give to expanding our product lines, as well as our industry focus and reach. Our ability to produce plastic documents both without and with AuthentiGuard security technologies separates us from the competition. TransTech is enabling us to help more and more venues, managers and promoters ensure the integrity and security of their events. Adding MLB, the nation's pastime, to our roster, truly supports DSS' ongoing evolution as a solutions provider as well as the powerful impact our strategic Premier Partnerships provide."
Jim Gingo, Owner and President of TransTech Systems added, "The AuthentiGuard technology suite delivered on plastic card products allows us to bring a much higher level of authenticity to our Secure Identification Badge solutions. This is especially important in the event market where there is an ever-increasing need for improved security and the authentication of tickets and credentials to avoid counterfeiting and maintain appropriate levels of security at high-profile events.
Together with DSS and P3 we are providing an entirely new dimension of protection for the event pass, press pass, stage pass or special identification cards produced with TransTech's exclusive oversized card printer. We are pleased with the increased integration of the security technology that we have seen since beginning our relationship with DSS and expect to expand our relationship in the weeks and months to come."
DSS' technologies represent the leading anti-counterfeiting print security and authentication technologies on the market today and are believed to be the most effective optical deterrent security technologies in the world that work with the latest models of digital copiers, imaging systems and scanners.
