Technical Considerations for Contactless EMV

WHITE PAPER - By Jordan Parker Contributing writer, ATMmarketplace.com

When payment terminal operators eliminate the requirement of removing a credit card from a wallet or purse, consumers complete transactions nearly 53 percent faster than when utilizing traditional credit card payment methods, according to an American Express report. Though it requires an infrastructure overhaul, contactless EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) offers a more efficient, secure method of handling credit card transactions. This white paper, sponsored by Frankfurt, Germany-based Feig Electronic, discusses three technical considerations for full performance contactless EMV in unattended payment terminals, including:

  • Metal’s impact on performance
  • Durable design elements
  • Near field communication (NFC) compliance

MOBOTIX 5 Megapixel Sensor: Brighter, Faster, Sharper

by Mobotix http://www.mobotix.com/

The New S15, D15 and V15 Camera Models Deliver Top Image Quality.

MOBOTIX AG has launched three new camera models with higher frame rate, better light sensitivity, better zoom capability utilizing 5 Megapixel technology.

The new camera models S15, D15 and V15 are developed from the already successful predecessor series. By using 5 Megapixel sensors in these new camera models, the users will be able to experience clear advantages. "The most visible changes that we have made for the users are that they will experience a clearly better light sensitivity in low light conditions or at night," says Dr. Ralf Hinkel, founder of MOBOTIX AG. "The light sensitivity of the overall image quality is up to four times better, which enhances the overall image quality in for instance bad weather conditions and in the dark."

The maximum QXGA resolution is therefore more than 2.5 times higher than full HD. Another major advantage is that the new sensor technology in combination with preprocessing the image data directly in the camera delivers a video stream frame rate of up to 30 frames per second. An increased zoom capability of the S15, D15 and V15 enhances the possibilities even further. "We have increased the zoom option in color by 27% by using the new sensor technology, and by more than 200% in black-and-white," continued Dr. Hinkel. This results in more detailed images and allows for the camera to be positioned further away from the monitored areas. This allows users to benefit from increased flexibility when it comes to planning and installation.

The new S15, D15 and V15 camera models are equipped with the new, unique MxActivitySensor for camera-integrated video motion analysis. Once configured, the free-of-charge software can distinguish between relevant and irrelevant movements, drastically reducing the number of false alarms.

The new models equipped with 5 Megapixel sensors are all available as of immediately over authorized MOBOTIX distributors and partners.
