Holograms have become the authentication/validation device of choice for genuine products manufacturers. But they’ve become so ubiquitous that bad actors started counterfeiting them to confuse consumers as well as genuine actors in the supply chain.
Now Visual-AI enables a fast and simple way to authenticate genuine holograms in seconds, not only hardening the supply chain, but enabling a meaningful way for brands and product providers to engage consumers and track fakes wherever they appear.
VISUA delivers authentication of any type of hologram, from the world’s most complex holograms to simpler embossed holograms. It delivers automated authentication that simply works and that you can rely on, wherever you are and on virtually any recent generation smartphone device. It can be deployed in the cloud or on-device, to operate unconnected, but with smart features that make authentication as easy as point and click!
Our technology has developed in a way that allows users to validate holograms within seconds.
We understand that in order for hologram authentication to be deployed across the supply chain it has to be as easy as possible to use.
Our point and click authentication is exactly what it sounds like; users can simple point their device at the label they want to verify and click making it simple and intuitive.
VISUA’s Holographic Authentication Engine can be used by anyone at any point in the supply chain, thanks to our point and click authentication capabilities.
Our holographic authentication can validate hologram stickers, security foils, labels and tax stamps.
Holographic authentication enabled by computer vision allows for a more exact and reliable authentication of products that use security foils and hologram stickers among other holographic authentication methods. The engine delivers the most accurate, fast and scalable detections across all authentication label types.
Not at all! Our API allows your app or device to work without wifi, and best of all it automatically syncs and back up with your server as soon as the device connects to WiFi again.
Even better! When an update is released, VISUA delivers model updates directly to the application automatically each time it’s opened when the device is online.
Yes! VISUA developed a Smart Capture feature because we know that operatives work in both light and dark environments. Smart Capture ensures that the validation process is always flawless by automatically adjusting exposure, focus and flash levels for optimal authentication, day or night, bright or dark.
Holographic authentication can be used in any industry which deems it necessary to include security foils, stamps or labels on their products for validation. These industries might include pharmaceutical, technology, government (currency, tax stamps), sports merchandise and luxury goods, but this list is non-exhaustive.
In contrast to other computer vision solutions that provide a one-size-fits-all offering, VISUA does not have a standard price list. This is for a very logical reason – There are many factors and combinations of settings that define the final cost for each customer. Our Visual-AI (Computer Vision) solutions are very flexible in this regard so that the final implementation not only meets each customer’s specific technical needs, but also budgetary needs
Absolutely, we actively encourage and are very happy for our customers to benchmark our Visual-AI (Computer Vision) tech stack against other providers as we typically out-perform them.
However, as we don’t provide a one-size-fits-all system, we like to discuss your specific use case and requirements. Based on the outcome of that discussion, we then set up a live test using your own data. Once complete you receive the results and annotations in whatever format you need and we are available to discuss the specifics with you.
This is completely free, so simply get in touch to set this up.
Yes, you can establish a system whereby validations are logged on your system as soon as the device used to scan a hologram is connected to WiFi.
Yes – it is simple to add new labels to the index. All you have to do is reach out to our team and we will add it for you.
Deployment can be implemented in the cloud, on-premise, and even on-device. You can even choose a combination of all three if required.This option is unique to VISUA.
Absolutely! On-Device deployment is what makes our holographic authentication so effective and easy to use. Many of our clients view it as critical to their projects. Please get in touch to discuss further.
We like to think that our Visual-AI (computer vision) API is very easy to implement as part of any workflow, in fact, in most cases implementation takes as little as two hours. We have very clear API documentation also. But we are not simply an API provider, so do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have. We also implement a very thorough onboarding process and as a client you will have direct access to our team for any ongoing support questions.
Absolutely! Unlike other solutions on the market that charge significant fees for support, or force you to reach out to third-party consultants, VISUA is proud to be much more than simply an API provider. You can get in touch with any questions you may have during your research and feasibility stage. We also implement a very thorough onboarding process and as a client you will have direct access to our team for any ongoing support questions.
Yes, we have specific commercial initiatives to support these types of projects, although there are some qualifying requirements. Please get in touch to see if your project qualifies for support.
Yes, complete technical details are available in our API Documentation.
For sure! For instance, if you combine serial numbers or QRs with holograms, we can include text detection and custom object detection in your API. You can discuss this with our team during the planning stages.
Every offering from each company has a slightly different focus. The differences are too numerous to outline in this FAQ. However, we have developed specific comparison documents, which are available in our comparison guide section Specifically, you can find comparisons of VISUA vs Google Cloud Vision, Amazon Rekognition and Microsoft Azure’s Computer Vision suite.
If you have specific questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
If you want to deploy hologram authentication to stakeholders in your supply chain, including consumers, it needs to be simple. VISUA’s authentication technology and app guides users through the process, so authentication is simple, intuitive and can be performed without receiving training.
When working in the field, time is precious. That’s why we developed our technology to authenticate holograms in just a few seconds!
Our technology can be deployed in the cloud, on-premise and on-device, and can operate with or without a data connection. So whatever your use case and deployment requirements, we can meet your needs.
Being able to authenticate any number of holograms in the field without a data connection is great, but it’s even better when those authentications automatically upload back to the server the moment the device has access to cellular or Wi-Fi data connection.
It’s critical that operatives in the field can always have the latest models in their device so they can validate the latest hologram labels. But it’s even more important that they don’t have to remember to initiate the update. That’s why VISUA delivers model updates straight to the app automatically each time it’s opened and the device is online.
Operatives work in both bright-light and low-light environments. So VISUA developed the Smart Capture feature to ensure that the validation process is always flawless by automatically adjusting exposure, focus and flash levels for optimal operation no matter where the operative may be.
