Veridos launches new color image technology
- The security feature CLIP ID enables secure, durable color images to be applied to pre-produced polycarbonate IDs
- CLIP ID creates vibrant color photos using the advantages of both laser engraving and ink-jet printing
- Bangladesh is using the technology, which is compatible with all commonly used ID formats, for its new ePassports
Berlin, December 10, 2018 – World-leading identity solutions provider Veridos has announced the release of a new security feature that will allow governments to apply secure, durable and vibrant color ID photos with high process flexibility. Veridos now offers two color image methods for polycarbonate identity documents: POLYCORE® technology and a new solution to be showcased at this week’s APSCA Border Management and Identity Conference.
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 will be presented during a joint speech by the Bangladesh Government and Veridos on December 11, at the APSCA Border Management and Identity Conference in Bangkok.
Major General Md Masud Rezwan, Director General of the Bangladesh Department of Immigration and Passport, said: “We are proud to offer our citizens ePassports with high-quality color images. With more than 160 million inhabitants, Bangladesh is the world’s eighth most populous country and will provide the highest output of passports with color photos worldwide.”
Fabiola Bellersheim, Head of Sales Asia at Veridos: ”CLIP ID combines laser engraving and color printing within a customized lenticular structure. 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.”
The solution is suitable for both centralized and decentralized personalization processes. Customers placing a higher importance on centralized, combined production and personalization, on the other hand, will still be able to rely on the POLYCORE® technology provided by Veridos’s shareholder Bundesdruckerei.
