The impact of digital print on the security market as seen from the substrate supplier
Abstract:The challenges to the traditional security market have never been greater nor in a period of greater diversity and flux. The impact of the internet, mobile phone and the SOHO printer have changed not only the way security documents are printed and examined but also the relationship between the user and the issuer. So while some security documents have been devalued by these changes; the levels of security, complexity and functionality of others have increased significantly. The incorporation of chips, RFID and displays draws the secure document into the world of printed electronics. Both worlds are being transformed by digital printing and are increasingly technically demanding on the substrate.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
