Technical overview

It’s easy to implement scryptoTRACE to your current systems – the encoding is applied to packaging or branding artwork files at pre-press – supporting all kind of standard printing processes. The system works via proprietary Digital Text encoding markers invisible to the human eye. We then use a hi-tech image analysis algorithm to detect the encoding on the product packaging instantaneously via smartphones. No image transfer to the server is required to conduct a verification.

The verification process is a simple three-step process and takes less than three seconds – all in an offline environment. Data are then transmitted over an encrypted network to the server at the next available connection. Verification can also be tracked and monitored in real-time, offering up-to-the-minute reports of the status of field workers, criminal targets or insight into fraudulent activity. Data can be extracted in CSV format for upload into data analysis programs.
