Veridos introduces new color image tech for polycarbonate identity documents
Veridos showcased its new color image method for polycarbonate identity documents at last week’s APSCA Border Management and Identity Conference in Bangkok. The new security feature will allow governments to apply secure, durable and vibrant color ID photos with high process flexibility.
Veridos’s new color image technology is called CLIP ID, short for Color Laser Image Protected ID. The solution is being implemented in Bangladesh’s new ePassport and was presented during a joint speech by the Bangladesh government and Veridos at the APSCA Border Management and Identity Conference.
“CLIP ID combines laser engraving and color printing within a customized lenticular structure,” explained Fabiola Bellersheim, head of sales Asia at Veridos. “This guarantees utmost security and long-lasting product lifetime without the need for additional protection layers. It can be applied by any laser engraving and ink-jet printing, making it a very cost-effective technology.”
According to a company statement, the solution is suitable for both centralized and decentralized personalization processes. The POLYCORE technology provided by Veridos’s shareholder Bundesdruckerei is also still available.
