Identive Introduces Family Of LEGIC(R) Readers To Address Growing Trend Of Multi-Function ID Cards

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Sept. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced the introduction of a new family of multi-protocol LEGIC® card readers that address the growing trend in corporate, campus and other environments towards the use of a single smart ID card to perform many functions.

Based on the latest advant 4000 reader IC technology from LEGIC Identsystems AG, Identive's new readers work with a variety of smart card formats to support multiple applications, including secure access to networks and shared office equipment, ID credential authentication, cashless payment, loyalty and others. Identive's LEGIC product family includes a desktop reader, reader modules for easy integration with vending machines, kiosks and production lines, as well as a small-profile reader module for integration into handheld terminals.

"With more than 25 million readers and chipsets deployed, Identive is one of the world's leading suppliers of smart card readers for access applications such as cyber security and secure PC/network logon. As our customers have begun to incorporate multi-function smart cards into their identity and access programs, they have naturally turned to us to provide contactless readers for new applications such as payment and ID checks. LEGIC's chip, card and reader technology has a strong foundation in Europe and a growing presence in Asia and the Americas, so providing contactless readers with LEGIC support was a logical move. We are excited to extend our reader portfolio with LEGIC functionality and to broaden our capabilities in the multi-function ID card market with these new product offerings," said Dr. Manfred Mueller, executive vice president and COO Identification Products for Identive.

Identive's new family of contactless readers benefits from LEGIC's latest advant 4000 chip technology, with backwards compatibility to smart cards using LEGIC prime technology, full compliance to smart ID and access card standards including ISO14443 and ISO15693, and interoperability with other chip and card technology such as NXP Semiconductors' MIFARE™ family and Sony's FeliCa™. This makes the new reader-writer very flexible in supporting today's dynamic card environments, where a single ID card based on diverse technologies may be used for a variety of purposes such as building access, network logon and payment in the canteen or café.
