HIGH DEFINITION SECURITY
RAPID® HD Brings High-Contrast Colors and Sharp Movement
Crane Currency presents RAPID® HD, an advanced form of RAPID® micro-optic security thread that provides for even higher engagement and ease of use. RAPID HD affords new customizable design possibilities with a broad palette of rich colors that highlight sharp, fast movement effects.
MOVEMENTS WITH EXTREME HIGH CONTRAST
In the domain of public security technology, contrast and movement are critical to providing easy and intuitive authentication. Easy to see movement is the public’s most important visual cue for verifying authenticity quickly and decisively. RAPID HD security threads exhibit high contrast movement effects with images and colors that can exactly meet the theme of the banknote. The security thread exhibits distinct, easy to verify movement. Always with only a ‘flick of the wrist’ and in any lighting condition.
Since its introduction in 2014, RAPID security thread has claimed the industry’s distinction of having the fastest and easiest-to-verify movement. RAPID HD raises this already high bar through advancements in material properties and processing that yield results that are deservedly described as high definition or “HD”.
MORE SECURE, THINNER THREAD
RAPID HD packs increased security and ease of use into a security thread that is nearly 10% thinner than traditional RAPID. This reduction means its integration is made even easier.
DURABILITY AND POST-PRINT VARNISHING
RAPID HD security thread is highly durable. It is resistant to soiling and oils and can be post-print varnished.
RAPID HD DETECT
RAPID HD Detect uses a secure IR material that is invisible to the public and easily detected by high-speed sorting and cash processing equipment. Only available to the currency industry, Detect exhibits a unique IR signal that can be easily verified by cash processing equipment.
GLIDE – THE NEW HD MOVEMENT EFFECT
A new visual effect called “Glide” is offered together with RAPID HD. Glide effects propel customized images across the feature in response to even the slightest tilt of the banknote. The simplest advice to “look for the movement” is now even easier to follow.
