Watch the video of KURZ Banknotes to learn the difference between the KINEGRAM and a hologram.
Diffractive optically variable image devices (DOVIDs) are optical security features that show specific visual effects based on the principle of diffraction. Inherent gratings which modify light create dynamic visual effects which are easy to recognize but difficult to reproduce.
Unlike a hologram, the patented KINEGRAM technology is exclusively used to secure government documents and banknotes. The resolution possibilities of the vector-based KINEGRAM are virtually unlimited, meaning a wide array of unique and precise optical effects that are inimitable by holography. Every single KINEGRAM security feature has an unmistakable footprint and is arguably the most advanced counterfeit protection available.
Over the last three decades, the KINEGRAM technology has continuously evolved and matured. Secure identity protection today means high-end security elements with sophisticated partial metallization or the unique KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology. Novel combinations of materials and processes have made counterfeiting virtually impossible. Passports, ID cards, driver licenses and other government issued documents can rely on document security provided by the KINEGRAM.
