Veritech introduces VeriOVD- powered by the revolutionary Nano-Optics technology

What is VeriOVD?

To combat the increasing problem of tampering, repackaging, and counterfeiting of your genuine products, Veritech has introduced VeriOVD – a world-class revolutionary technology, one of the first of its kind in India, that integrates Nano-Optics technology into OVDs (Optically Variable Devices)

VeriOVD is the next generation of optically variable devices (OVDs) which uses Nano Optics technology. It delivers both advanced security features and distinctive optical features.

Why is VeriOVD way ahead of conventional security holograms?

  • Security features of VeriOVD are extremely difficult for counterfeiters to accurately copy them with their conventional methods
  • Many interesting, eye-catching features enable end consumers to easily identify genuine products
  • Easily customized for any application – be it stamped foils & strips, security seals, product and MRP labels, or secure documents
  • Used across diverse industry sectors around the world
  • Manufactured using one of the world’s most advanced OVD origination systems from 4PICO, Netherlands, which is one of the first of its kind in India
  • Nano Optics technology enables the production of amazingly detailed OVDs, with stunning visual effects such as mirror Fresnel effects, true 3D images, and high-depth perception. They are almost impossible to be copied by counterfeiters
  • In addition to the above, several covert and forensic-level features are also possible with this technology, such as Nano text and images of up to 5 microns in size, micro-image patterns, CLR effects, and many more

What is Nano-Optics Technology in Holography?

Nano-Optics is one of the most recent, safest, and most sophisticated Nano-optical imaging technologies in the world. One of the most revolutionary innovations in holography is using nano-optical images. Simply put, these images change the behavior of light on the nanometer scale (10-9 meters). Integrating nano-optical images makes security holograms highly secure against any copying or duplication. Nano OVDs (optically variable devices) meet all requirements for resolution, flexibility, and performance.

It is possible to create Nanostructures and anti-counterfeiting security features in OVDs with a resolution up to 640,000 dpi and tolerances as close as 2 nm (nanometers), which can rightfully be referred to as the best solution against counterfeiting. With the help of digital or laser microscopes, forensic security features may now be achieved in the Nano range thanks to Nano-optics technology.

Nano OVD is manufactured using the Nano Optical Imaging System. The system optically records original features synthesized using computer-synthesized planar nano-optics. This transmission technology creates security features for vision and equipment control that other optical transmission technologies cannot imitate.

This advanced technology can control the optical field (amplitude and phase of light) and its polarization. Submicron structures with specific 3D profiles can produce unique optical effects such as 3D visualization, motion, color, and many other security features.

Veritech is a pioneer in providing advanced security holograms and other anti-counterfeiting products and solutions. The company provides customized nano-optical security holograms for various industries to ensure optimal product and brand security from duplication.

Security features and special optical effects in VeriOVD:

  1. Metallic Effect – This metallic reflective effect, perceptible from various viewing angles and lacking holographic color, is metallic in appearance. In addition to smooth surfaces, complex surfaces that resemble brushed steel can also be produced.
  1. Rolling Effect – In the Rolling effect, when the hologram is moved in a circular motion, the object or text inside the outline moves along both the X and Y axes while the outline itself remains stationary.
  1. Fresnel to Holographic Flip-Flop – In this feature, the text/images switch between a Fresnel lens (raised) effect and a holographic color effect when viewed from different angles.
  1. Pure White Effect – There is no holographic color in this pure white effect (also known as achromatic white). Thanks to the excellent resolution, the surface appears level and smooth.
  1. Kinetic Effect – This feature consists of a sequential pattern that uses a series of thin, multi-colored lines. When the OVD is tilted at different angles, the colors in the pattern appear to be moving from one side to the other, thus creating a kinetic effect.
  1. De-metallization – De-metallization refers to removing specific metallic areas from the OVD film to leave behind the text, patterns, or other effects. The de-metalized area on an OVD becomes transparent, and the area left behind forms the intended text or pattern to be shown. This feature is widely used in holograms on currency notes in many countries.
  1. Relief Effect – Using a regress calculation of the 3D microstructure, razor-sharp relief is produced. Due to the intricate and precise modulation, this relief technique produces a remarkable visual impression with distinct and dazzling contours.
  1. PLS Effect – PLS stands for Point Light Source. This feature appears as a normal lens effect on the surface of the OVD, but when viewed from a certain angle, one can see the text character inscribed within the lens. This character also has virtual depth, i.e. it appears to be inset at a point below the surface of the OVD.
  1. Metallic Effect – This metallic reflective effect, perceptible from various viewing angles and lacking holographic color, is metallic in appearance. In addition to smooth surfaces, complex surfaces that resemble brushed steel can also be produced.
  1. Mirror Lens – Improved shrinking and growing capabilities. If the hologram is tilted from top to bottom, left to right, or vice versa, the object (in this case, the honeycomb pattern) will contract or expand at the same spot. The mirror lens exhibits a lens effect and comes in various shapes, including curved lenses containing or concealing text and images.
  1. True-3D Image – As the name suggests, this feature has a high-definition 3D object, complete with depth and contours, that can be seen from multiple directions by changing one’s viewing angle.
  1. Embossed Effect – Embossed images or text appear to have beveled edges, giving them an embossed (raised) appearance.
  1. Floating Effect – In this feature, the text/image gives it the appearance of ‘floating’ above the surface of the OVD, i.e., it gives a perception of depth between the background and foreground elements.

Covert and Forensic Features of Nano-optics VeriOVD

  1. CLR Text – CLR stands for Covert Laser Readable and requires a special handheld device known as a CLR reader to be seen. When the CLR area is exposed to a laser beam emitted by the reader, the hidden text or image can be viewed on its display.
  1. Micro Kinetic-Text – Micro Text is very small and visible only through a high-powered magnifying glass. In this feature, the micro text is arranged in a pattern that creates a Kinetic effect, i.e., the text appears to be moving in a wavy pattern when the viewing angle is changed.
  1. Nano Image – Nano text and Images are extremely small in size, ranging anywhere between 5 to 10 microns. These are only visible using a high-powered microscope (at 100x zoom level).
