VCode® has an infinite range of applications and capabilities from secure identification and ID, to geo location and geo fencing, asset tracking, authentication and permission based authorisations, fan and customer engagement through to biometrics and facial recognition.
VCode® can be used across a wide range of applications to securely purchase music, video and film content to concert and sports event tickets. It can also be used to screen exclusive film content, sales promotion and marketing and create dynamic marketing and fan engagement campaigns. Its wider uses also include anti counterfeiting and anti piracy. A VCode® can be scanned from over 100 metres, with a 80:1 distance to size scan ratio, at 170-degree angles, on and from moving objects, and upon any multimedia or television screen and even when the VCode® is microscopic on bank notes or minerals.

VCode® provides military grade encryption with over 2.2 Quintillion combination codes.
Supporting the VCode® app is the VPlatform® - a secure cloud based portal that allows users to create VCode® and manage the content they lead to. The VPlatform® also provides users with real time analytics on who scanned their codes, when and where the scans took place, providing vital consumer data. The VPlatform® enables push notifications and rewards to be sent back to individuals who have made VCode® scans, offering opportunities for brands to significantly enhance their engagement levels with their client base.
About V-HEALTH PASSPORT™
The digital health passport, works in conjunction with a Government approved Covid-19 testing kit to authenticate a persons heath status after taking the test. The technology, which is GDPR and data compliant, gives a traffic light system to confirm test positive (Red) test negative (Green) and a countdown timer to the next test (Amber).
A person downloads the VCode® and enters their name, address, doctors details, national health number and verify their identity through photographic identity. A facial recognition likeness is then compared against the uploaded identity.
The COVID-19 test is taken at a doctors surgery, medical practice, or testing station and the results are then uploaded to the V-HEALTH PASSPORT™ and verified by the doctor or nurse. Test status is confirmed and scanned to the health passport to confirm negative or positive
Unlike the current contact tracing apps and bluetooth proximity apps proposed by the Government, V-HEALTH PASSPORT™ does not track and trace a persons movements or their location.
The health passport can be scanned from 100 metres on moving objects allowing for compliance with social distancing.
Full GDPR compliant - private information and data is secure with end to end encryption using 2.2 Quintillion combination codes, making it un hackable.
The V-HEALTH PASSPORT™ can then allow entry into the workplace, sports events and music concerts by showing their V-HEALTH PASSPORT™ and its traffic light health status.
