nnovative Technology reported a busy ICE 2019 and successfully previewed their two new state-of-the-art recyclers. Both the NV22 Spectral (NV22S) and Spectral Payout attracted much interest on the stand, alongside their new ICU unit - a brand-new age verification device that automates the policy for controlling access to age restricted premises, gaming and purchases.
Marcus Tiedt, Sales Director commented, “2019 was our busiest ICE to date with a solid stream of international visitors over the three days, particularly on Day 2 which produced a record day of visitor enquiries. The highlights on the stand were our new recycling products featuring our cutting-edge Spectral technology.
"The new Spectral Payout was undoubtedly the star on the stand this year. This 80 note mixed denomination recycler for high volume applications can store all denominations from a given currency thereby eliminating coin starvation and reducing coin float levels required to keep machines operational. This latest addition to the Spectral family uses our established NV200 Spectral banknote validator – which was as popular as ever at the show, both as a standalone product and as part of the Spectral Payout. With its full spectral imaging sensors, the unit validates the authenticity of notes offering exceptional protection against fraudulent and stained notes. The Spectral Payout is a fully secure unit significantly improving serviceability as it incorporates quick and easy access to the payout module when undocked for maintenance, plus internal memory for data logging and free firmware updates. This is the perfect product for any customers wanting to upgrade from the SMART Payout to give them enhanced security and higher speed.”
ITL’s NV22S is a more compact note recycler which combines a new true ‘Multi-Note Float’ (MNF) payout unit with Innovative’s NV9 Spectral banknote validator. This product is the next iteration of the NV11 which is ideal for medium volume applications with limited space. This 40 mixed-denomination note recycler can now store all denominations from a given currency and is therefore not limited to one or two notes only. As well as improving operator profitability and lowering operational costs, all notes in the MNF can be transferred to the cashbox for easy, low-cost collection.
Marcus continued, “Our new ICU unit also drew lots of attention. ICU uses intelligent biometric algorithms to verify age for the restriction of over 18 premises such as Adult Gaming Centres. The device uses the latest 3D anti-fraud system which allows the unit to distinguish been a picture and the real person’s face, providing reassurance to customers and preventing spoof attacks.”
Concluding Marcus said, “ICE provides us with a great platform to preview our new innovations. It gives us the opportunity to get important customer input to add to our field trials, ensuring we continue to produce products that exceed customer requirements. Over the coming months we will be continuing to trial, test and exhibit our new recyclers before they are fully lunched to the market.”
