    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.”
