    Kodak, Xerox extol anti-fraud technology
    (June, 2007) — To protect high-end brands, some wineries are planning on adding an extra ingredient to every bottle — anti-counterfeiting technology developed by Eastman Kodak Co.Even as Kodak is publicly unveiling its “Traceless” system to stop counterfeiting, Xerox Corp. announced last week it had developed the toner equivalent of invisible ink, allowing printers to put personalized information or security marks that only show up under ultraviolet light.

    Anti-counterfeiting is emerging as a technological area for the area’s major high-tech employers.
    Paper manufacturers put fluorescent agents into paper to make it appear as white as possible. The Xerox discovery involves using a combination of toners that would allow some of that paper fluorescence to glow when exposed to ultraviolet light, freeing people up from having to load special fluorescent toner into a machine, said Reiner Eschbach, a research fellow in the Xerox Innovation Group.Kodak is tight-lipped about what the scanners are reading. “A crime lab, using the cutting-edge analytical techniques, would not even be able to detect our materials,” said Steven J. Powell, general manager and director of Kodak’s Security Solutions. “Only a Kodak reader can.”
