IN Groupe, The right to be you

The Imprimerie Nationale Group will be attending SDW 2017, 26th-28th June 2017, London, UK

The Imprimerie Nationale Group, a world leader in secure biometric identity solutions will showcase its comprehensive offering of components, products, digital services and systems to States and citizens at SDW show.

SDW is a world-leading conference and exhibition event providing a global showcase for next-generation human identity solutions, focusing on intrinsic document security and on the new cutting-edge secure infrastructure now required to produce and use these advanced documents in live situations.

The introduction of a new global offer

This show will be the first opportunity for the Imprimerie Nationale Group to present the innovative solutions developed by the Group for the first time since the acquisition of the Biometric Identity Solutions activity of Thales (May 2017).
This new branch designs, develops and deploys identity management solutions encompassing the collection of biographic data from citizens, biometric enrolment, management of identity systems, including databases, identity control systems and user training.

The teams belonging to Imprimerie Nationale Group’s Biometric Identity Solutions branch (formerly Thales Identity & Biometrics) benefit from more than 30 years of experience in the field of integrated identity management throughout the world. They rank first in civil biometric market in France.

The integration of technologies and experience of Thales Identity & Biometrics into Imprimerie Nationale Group, allows the Group to reinforce its leadership as a trusted supplier of biometric and secure identity solutions with a global offer: innovative technologies, components, products, systems and digital services for governments and citizens in France and internationally.

Delivering innovative solutions:
the new “Hybrid 8” module

In parallel, the Group, through its Components’ dedicated branch (SPS) introduces “Hybrid 8,” its new micro module, for hybrid cards with two chips: one contact and one contactless. The new Hybrid 8 module has exactly the same dimensions as SPS Dual 8 module used for dual interface cards that support contact and contactless communication with a single chip. This dimensional standardization enables smart card manufacturers to switch easily between manufacturing contactless, hybrid and dual interface cards, as no additional investment is needed.

The new Hybrid 8 module allows smart card manufacturers to integrate both the contact and the contactless chip at the end of their process, leading to a significantly better yield than the traditional process in which the contactless chip has to be integrated in the form of an inlay, before lamination and printing, which leads to poorer yields.

With the new Hybrid 8 module, smart card manufacturers benefit from a simpler supply chain as they receive the modules already embedded with both the contact and the contactless chips. This way they have a single supplier bringing a simpler and more reliable supply of modules, already embedded with both chips, constituting a strategic supply.
