The Changing Technology of Student Cards
Academic ID cards have changed dramatically over the years. At one time, many institutions merely issued cardboard cards with personal information printed upon them. Simple technology like this was extremely prone to forgeries and impostures using the incorrect cards.
Eventually, schools began to incorporate identification photos and laminate coating into their cards. These steps helped to prevent improper use of the cards, made counterfeits more difficult to create, and also helped to protect the cards from damage.
How PVC Cards are Different
The number one aspect that separates the modern student PVC ID cards and proximity cards from student cards that were used in the past is their ability to incorporate a wide range of useful technology. Whereas older laminated cards could only contain the information that could be read on them, PVC cards are extraordinarily versatile, and able to easily accommodate a number of useful technologies, such as:
· Magnetic Stripe Reading
· Chip and Pin Reading
· High-Resolution Printing
· Contactless Card Reading
· Holographic Imaging
At Avon Security Products, we offer the most up-to-date products in security hardware, such as HID proximity cards which are manufactured by HID Global, a leading manufacturer.
The Advantage of Digital Data
Many of these more recently developed features have been designed specifically to allow card holders to carry encrypted personal data on their cards. The ability to carry and access personal digital data can provide many advantages that are especially useful in the academic setting.
For example, by holding information about a student’s financial account, their ID cards can be used in school cafeterias to purchase food items or meals. Cards can also be used to access computers, allowing students to carry assignment files or access on-campus printing services.
