Pagemark Technology, Inc. “Pelta™” is a patent pending technology
that dramatically changes the way high-value documents are proved to be
High Value Document
Built upon the increasingly popular 2D barcode, Pelta uses public
domain barcodes (ISO/IEC 18004) as a simple yet powerful way to ensure
important documents such as vital records, certificates of origins, id
badges, travel documents, registration documents, and packaging
material are authentic.
The system includes the tools to generate 2D barcodes and the software
that reads the barcodes.
What makes Pelta barcodes unique is a hidden
that is secretly
encoded on top of a standard “Quick Response” Barcode which includes
encrypted covert information. The 2D barcodes generated by Pelta
appears in every way like a standard machine readable 2D barcodes
Placing a Pelta barcode on a high-value document or card provides a
machine readable way to uniquely identify the document or card.
Further, the encrypted covert message can be tied to other visible
information on the document providing authenticity validation.
It is impossible for a counterfeiter to create the hidden information
within the barcode. In fact, the barcode appears in every way as a
standard 2D barcode.
covert information can only be read
by Pagemark proprietary algorithm. This algorithm is
Reading Pelta Barcodes
software running on ubiquitous smart phones, web cameras, or desktop
Smart phones are ubiquitous today and provide a powerful platform
for reading Pelta barcodes. Pagemark supplies a reader application
capable reading both overt and covert messages within the Pelta
barcodes. Customers using the Pelta systems are given customer
specific modules which uniquely link reader software running on a smart
phone to the barcode generation.
Smart Phone as the Reader
Smart Phones are cost effective way of authenticating high-value
documents. The smart phone also enables additional capabilities in the
authentication system such as SMS Text messages, GPS, network
connectivity, image capture, audio recording, and more.
