Gemalto Breakthrough Technology Provides Unprecedented Quality For Engraving Laser Color Photos In Secure Polycarbonate Documents

Ending the high-resolution secure documents' eternal trade-off between black-and-white high-security laser and lower security color pictures technologies

Capability is announced today and available immediately for volume production

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, May 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, launches Sealys Color in Polycarbonate , a remarkable innovation that allows very high quality color photographs to be permanently embedded into polycarbonate documents such as IDs, driving licenses and passports. Images up to 1200 dpi resolution have been made robustly tamper-proof through a laser-engraving process, which applies markings deep into the document datapage. Polycarbonate documents are already recognized for their security and durability and now Sealys Color in Polycarbonate adds another unique feature to Gemalto's broad range of options to better meet the evolving demands of government authorities and national printers.

The use of high resolution color portraits is well appreciated to facilitate more accurate on-the-spot identification at border checkpoints. Additional security features include deep-set embedding of microtext in the image to make alteration virtually impossible. In addition, the new technology enables personalization to be performed independently of the document manufacturing process, so as to preserve complete flexibility at issuance.

Sealys Color in Polycarbonate complements Gemalto's wide ranging and innovative laser-personalization portfolio. Unique in the market, Sealys Edge Sealer engraves the holder's name or ID number along the document edge. Sealys Window is a transparent area inside the card which makes any attempt to tamper with the document immediately obvious.

" Gemalto's highly sophisticated laser engraving technology is designed to counter forgery while remaining easy for officials to verify document authenticity, hence providing more convenience to legitimate holders," commented Frédéric Trojani, Executive Vice President of Government Programs at Gemalto. " Building on Gemalto's unparalleled expertise in secure documents – reflected in over 80 national programs - it is part of our commitment to continue to invest in pioneering solutions that help keep our customers one step ahead."
