VSC 400 provides facilities for examining:

– UV activated luminescent features under short, medium and long wave UV.

– Tampering and photo-substitution under high magnification.

– Anti-Stokes security features using intense IR lighting.

– Retro-reflective features with coaxial lighting.

– Embossed stamps under oblique lighting.

– Holograms using sequential multi-angled lighting.

– Watermarks using transmitted lighting.

– Suspected alterations using differential infrared absorption and luminescence properties of inks.

– ICAO coded data reader.
