AlpVision Fingerprint has experienced more revenue growth than any of our technologies over the past few years. The reason behind this trend lies in its simplicity. Instead of applying a marking, this authentication method relies on the imperfections that naturally occur in molded products. We have deployed this technology with great success on plastic parts (pharmaceutical flip-off tops) and on metallic ones. In the watch industry, so far, we have been limited to parts that are either molded or die-stamped. However, we are now able to propose a fingerprint that is unique for each watch and still detectable with an iPhone. The detection process performs a serial number lookup, followed by a one-to-one match with the micro-defects of the watch under inspection. As with our other technologies, a regular iPhone can be used to perform instant product authentication.
