Veridos, a leading provider of integrated identity solutions and a joint venture between Giesecke+Devrient and state-owned Bundesdruckerei, has announced the forming of an exclusive development partnership with Prismade Labs GmbH, which is part of edding Group. The objective of this joint development is to integrate Prismade technology into Veridos ID cards and system solutions. For more information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printed Electronics and Circuit Prototyping 2019-2029.
Printed electronics will be used to digitally mark ID cards, enabling them to create interactive interfaces with smartphones. The technology requires neither a chip nor radio waves.
Dr. Silke Bargstädt-Franke, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Management at Veridos, explains: "The integration of Prismade technology into our cutting-edge ID cards enables us to expand our product portfolio in a number of ways. Together, we are developing a new security feature that can be verified even by untrained personnel, with no need for specific readers, and in doing so we are reducing the barriers to digital verification by connecting smartphones in a user-friendly way."
Jan Thiele, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Prismade Labs adds: "In Veridos, we have found a partner whose software product expertise has been tried and tested in many different ways, meaning it represents an excellent complement to our many years of specializing in functional, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective printing technology. We very much look forward to soon being able to jointly offer new ID documents and verification on this basis."
