System Integrators

Integrated identity solutions are incomplete without a state-of-the-art DOVID feature such as the KINEGRAM. OVD Kinegram is leading the way in integrated security elements for any type of document, be it polycarbonate-based, paper-based or using a different substrate.

Embedding KINEGRAM elements into the body of polycarbonate cards or data pages was pioneered by OVD Kinegram. Today, it is impossible to imagine the document market without DOVID-secured polycarbonate substrates. Based on such innovations, OVD Kinegram has established itself as the gold standard in protecting identities.

We are the partner of choice for integrators providing complete passport or ID card systems, offering more than 35 years of unparalleled experience in state-of-the-art security features, their design and application.
