Kappa -- Camera-Internal Electronic Signature
GLEICHEN, Germany, July 27, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- With the digitization of photography, the risks of image manipulation increase and thus the obligation to prove originality is decisive. With the camera-internal signature function, Kappa responds quickly to the need of reliable, tamper-proof image data. The new 12 bit digital camera series DX 4/40 S with megapixel resolution provides a special camera-internal function to sign images together with additional data (e.g., measuring values, QA data, serial number) with an electronic signature. Method and implementation of the signature creation comply with the BSI recommendations (Federal Office for Information Security, Germany). Courts of law, criminal prosecution, claims for compensation, QA documentations -- the signature assures integrity and authenticity of the image data for all requirements. The camera series is qualified for a wide range of applications, especially in the area of traffic engineering, forensic applications, industrial QA laboratories and pharmaceutical applications. The camera technology as a component of a complete traffic control system is on the brink of PTB approval (official metrological approval).
