GET Group and Graphic Security Systems Corporation (GSSC) announced the GET/Toppan eP600 ePassport System (eP600), one of the first passport printers capable of personalizing secure travel documents using GSSC’s Variable Stealth SI security feature.
Variable Stealth SI is a concealed image added to the color photo. The image is generated using patented software developed by GSSC that encodes the personal data from the biographical data into the photo. This data can be revealed only by using a combination of the Infrared (IR) scan of the data page and GSSC’s decoding software.
The eP600’s printing features include 600 dpi, solid pigment ink printing and “dot on dot” printing method. The eP600 also offers automatic book feeding, on-line ePassport chip encoding, and integrated security film lamination all in a one-step process taking less than 40 seconds per passport.
Secure passport personalization is facilitated by the combination of GET’s advanced printing capabilities and GSSC’s steganographic technology creates a very strong forensic feature, extremely resistant to scanning and counterfeiting.
