Identive Announces New Game Changer For Machine To Machine - M2M Applications

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced GameChangeRâ„¢, an innovative developers' solutions kit that enables the rapid creation and integration of contactless radio frequency identification (RFID) technology into electronic games without the need for specialist RFID knowledge. RFID allows physical objects to interact with virtual environments for a richer user experience.

"Increasingly, people are interested in creating interactions between their physical environment and the virtual world. In areas such as electronic gaming, this is fueling demand for M2M solutions that allow a device, such as a game piece, to deliver information about itself to a software application, such as an electronic game, that determines how the piece will be used in the game and also allows the game to change the characteristics of the piece by storing new information on it," explained Dr. Manfred Mueller, COO Identification Products for Identive Group. "Identive's GameChangeR development kit leverages Identive's expertise so developers can easily incorporate RFID into electronic games with the addition of instant, contactless communications and memory capabilities to game pieces."

Michael Ganzera, vice president of Marketing for Identive added, "Our new RFID development kit truly is a game changer for developers, because it allows them to create dynamic and interactive gaming experiences using RFID technology, with no prior RFID experience. This ability to deliver what the market needs springs from Identive's unique ability to address the entire value chain of RFID, from tags to readers to complete solutions."

The GameChangeR RFID solutions development kit comes with a specially-configured RFID reader, three GameChangeR tags and a USB – USART converter. The 13.56Mhz, ISO14443A reader exposes a simple-to-use, high-level API that allows developers to interact with the GameChangeR RFID tags in a protected manner, and with no knowledge or prior experience working with RFID technology. Both the reader and the pre-initialized GameChangeR tags are configured to work only with each other, which ensures integrity of the tag content and protection of the gaming experience in a given ecosystem. Identive currently is accepting orders for the GameChangeR development kit for shipment in February.
