JDSU Earns Two More Industry Awards for Breakthrough HoloFuse(TM) Solution for the Protection of Identity Documents
Milpitas, Calif. - JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU and TSX: JDU) today announced that it has won two more prestigious industry awards for its breakthrough HoloFuse(TM) anti-counterfeiting technology. The most recent awards were granted by the International Card Manufacturers' Association (ICMA) in May and by The Association of Industrial Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) in March.
HoloFuse was introduced to security printers and document makers in 2009 as a new and highly integrated polycarbonate film that helps protect government-issued identity documents such as passports, national identity documents and driver's licenses against counterfeiting and tampering.
"With HoloFuse, JDSU technology experts developed a completely new way to protect the integrity of high security identity documents," said Scott Magnacca, director of Sales for Advanced Optical Technologies at JDSU. "JDSU is honored to receive more industry accolades that recognize our continued commitment to creating solutions that help reduce fraud."
JDSU has won four industry awards for HoloFuse since its inception in May 2009. In November 2009, JDSU received the acclaimed Sesames Award during the annual 2009 CARTES IDentification conference event and also received the 2009 IHMA Excellence in Holography Award from the International Hologram Manufacturer's Association.
More on HoloFuse
HoloFuse is the first solution that helps prevent counterfeiting efforts by adding secure holographic security features to polycarbonate cards without the use of an adhesive layer, which is currently prone to attack by document forgers. In addition, providing an integrated solution simplifies the manufacturing process for card and identity document makers.
The partially transparent and customized hologram within the polycarbonate film includes overt, covert and forensic security features that make it difficult to reproduce. JDSU's technology also better preserves the hologram, making it brighter and easier to identify.
