MK3 meets international diplomats and consuls

The MicroPOISE MK3 was demonstrated to to international consuls and diplomats based in UK embassies last week at the Embassy Consular conference 2016.

We demonstrated how the MicroPOISE MK3 can be used to apply a numbered security feature to an entry visa. The example visa was applied with a numbered Duogram HD+ security feature and the biometric data of the issuer, the issuing location and the document ID were recorded by the MK3 system and stored within a database. This database could then be accessed by the authenticating officer to check that all in the information was correct and that the document was genuine. 

Our Commercial Director Brian also gave a presentation to the conference on improving security on travel documents.


National Security Middle East is the next stop for MK3

The MicroPOISE MK3 has continued it's travels and is now being exhibited with Brian and our Abu Dhabi partner EPM at the National Security Middle East conference in the UAE.

The MicroPOISE MK3 can be seen on OVD Kinegram's botth C01. The MK3 can not only apply security features but also records and links the document, the issuers biometric data, issuing location and stores them within a database.

MicroPOISE MK3 launched at SDW 2016

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the official launch of our new MicroPOISE MK3 hologram system.

We had an outstanding response from the industry who were particularly impressed by the MK3's ability to not only apply a security feature but to also be able to link the feature to the document and record the issuing officers biometric data. This information could then be used to authenticate the document.

We would like to thank the SDW team for another great exhibition and will look forward to see what next year has in store.

SDW2017 will be held at the QE2 centre in London between the 26th and the 28th June 2017.
