VEVEY, SWITZERLAND | AlpVision a provider of digital invisible technologies for product authentication and counterfeit protection, has developed an iPhone application capable of detecting Cryptoglyph—a digital invisible marking that is applied to cartons, leaflets, labels, and blister packs using regular visible ink and standard printing processes, and Fingerprint—an authentication solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by molding without changing the standard molding practices. The app will be on display at the upcoming Pack Expo, October 28–31, 2012, at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The application is capable of detecting covert/invisible safety features. Working in real-time, it determines the authenticity of a package or product within seconds, company says. Product-specific and user-friendly, the application reportedly works with a variety of packaging materials, including paper, board, and plastic, and packaging types such as flat and round surfaces.
