Security Stocks; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Subsidiary TransTech Systems Announces Access Card Programmer Incorporated in ID Card Printers

SEATTLE - April 12, 2011 (Investorideas.com Defense Newswire) - Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), a pioneer provider of industry-leading color based identification and diagnostic solutions, an emerging leader in security and authentication systems technology and distributor of a wide variety of security solutions through its wholly-owned subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce that TransTech Systems has successfully incorporated an industry standard access card programmer into an identification card printer for production of personalized access control credentials.
Traditionally, access cards are pre-programmed by providers and shipped to the users for future use. At the time of card issuance, there is a two step process whereby the card is read by an access reader to get the pre-programmed number associated with the card and then the card is printed with the card holder's information. With TransTech's integration of Farpointe Data's Cards on the Go™ COG1000 directly into the printer, the process can be accomplished in one step. Further, the requirements for ordering pre-programmed stock and the related worries about the security of this stock before issuance are eliminated.
Cards on the Go™ COG-1000 is an access control credential programmer designed to give security access control professionals and system integrators the ability to program both proximity and contactless smartcard credentials. The Cards on the Go™ COG-1000 desktop solution includes a USB-based desktop programmer, a USB cable, programming software and 100 preloaded programming tokens. The Cards on the Go™ card printer based solution configuration will vary by printer manufacturer. OEM solutions for larger systems integrators may be available.
Adding Cards on the Go™ technology to identification card printer solutions provides a unique product offering for TransTech's security reseller channel. TransTech Systems is currently the only provider of this technology. The unit was debuted at the ISC West Security Industry trade show in Las Vegas last week. Full production is planned within sixty days.
