AgilLite: A Novel Security Feature for High Security Documents

AgilLite® technology is based on an innovative method to create novel diffractive originations distinguishing from all other known DOVID features. It involves one-of-a-kind mastering equipment as well as proprietary materials and software.
The visible information is built on diffractive surface elements sophistically designed to compose an image which, upon illumination, is projected towards the observer. This image appears bright-white and is customizable within a high degree of freedom including numbers, figures, graphical elements etc. (“Symbols”). By tilt or rotation of the device the displayed Symbols reveal continuous, coordinated motion at high agility to the authenticator, additionally exhibiting a distinct 3D-effect. Hence, it combines the mobility and optical depth of lens-based (refractive) security features with the thin diffractive optic of hologram type devices.
Despite its outstanding optical characteristics, manufacture of this new DOVID has been demonstrated to be cost competitive: Starting from its origination master, pilot production has been successfully performed by means of either standard uv casting or hot embossing processes on roll-to-roll equipment. The paper applied AgilLite® foil passed standard PCR tests for banknote application.
A selection of examples based on AgilLite® origination technology will be presented. They are unique, optically attractive, easy to communicate and difficult to counterfeit, making them ideally suited for the protection of high security documents.
