FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identiv (Nasdaq:INVE), a global security technology company that provides trust solutions for premises, information, and everyday items, today announced it won the Security Products 2014 New Product of the Year Award for Near Field Communication (NFC) Devices. Identiv's Giant NFC tag is the first in its class, measuring an unprecedented 5.1 by 7.1 inches, and delivering consistent detection over the entire surface area by any NFC-enabled device.
"As the adoption of NFC-enabled mobile devices continues, solution designers are demanding a broader range of NFC form factors," said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO. "We are seeing an increasing demand from multiple industries to extend their Internet of Things strategy to include NFC — which in reality delivers secure remote computers that are momentarily connected to the internet. These solutions offer new sources of information and interactivity for customers and manufacturers to better understand their world, including electronic toys, healthcare, government, and consumer items."
Display designers can connect as many of Identiv's Giant NFC tags as desired to cover a huge advertising display, panel, or entire wall, making every point completely interactive. A customer can tap their device anywhere and launch customized content and functionality, or even connect to online services and analytics. The Identiv range of NFC secure tags, including the exclusive and patented tag-on-metal range, can have their identity provisioned by Identiv Trust Services (ITS) or the solutions provider.
