Inside Contactless has formed a partnership with TazTag, supplier of the TazCard NFC wallet, to develop and bring to market a variety of highly secured, multi-application contactless solutions based on near field communication technology.
TazCard is a mini Java-based tablet computer about the size of a credit card and is designed to support a variety of identity, healthcare, transportation, loyalty, ticketing, payments and other secure NFC-based applications. It features a 3.5 inch colour touch screen, biometric authentication, audio output, data storage and a tamper-resistant secure element, and offers USB and 6lowPAN communications in addition to NFC.
TazTag has also developed the TazKiosk, an interactive NFC urban advertising kiosk, developed in partnership with Hyundai IT.
“Inside has been instrumental from the beginning not only in providing the core NFC technology for our products, but also in supporting our vision and introducing us to potential customers,” says Eric Fouchard, CEO of TazTag. “We look forward to working with Inside on new and exciting products based on NFC technology.”
“The TazCard represents a new class of versatile NFC devices that will open the door to a broad range of new NFC applications,” added Inside Contactless’ Bertrand Moussel.
