­KSW Microtec AG will demonstrate a secure roadmap for e-ticketing and eID cards for the Latin American market at ID WORLD Rio de Janeiro, June 21 to 22, 2011.

A highlight of KSW's presence at the event will be a conference presentation on June 21 by KSW Microtec's Chief Technology Officer, Carsten Nieland. He will focus on the company's new revolutionary generation of prelaminates, Thinlam with its proven advantages for RFID-based ticketing and its potential for merging with applications for e-government and e-payment security ­ two sectors where it is already deployed in volume.

Thinlam will be introduced for the first time to the Latin American region and the timing could not be more relevant given the fact that Brazil will soon host two of the world's most important and largest sporting events ­ the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, says Carsten Nieland, KSW Microtec's CTO. Not only the events themselves, but the country's entire transportation network can benefit from the adoption of RFID-based integrated ticketing to achieve both efficiency and optimize security.

Another highly relevant development in the country is the introduction of the RIC (Registro de Identidade Civil) or Civilian Identity Registry numbering system, which is directly linked to the new Brazilian ID card standard for the incorporation of high security features through RFID - and where Thinlam can play a key role.

KSW has received large volume orders for its certified and standardized inlays for eTicketing, in 2011, and is producing tens of millions of ticket inlays to meet this demand, indicating a sustained increase for RFID based eTicketing schemes. This drive is further enhanced through the provision of customized products generated from different ISO14443/ISO15693 chips in combination with a variety of alternative antenna designs.

The Thinlam prelaminate family, along with other innovations, will be presented to the Latin American market for the first time in Rio de Janeiro at KSW¹s booth number A23.
