SAN JOSE and SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, March 12, 2012 (euro
adhoc) - WPG Americas, Inc. and Identive Group Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt:
INV) today announced that they have teamed to deliver a near field
communications (NFC) solution that allows data from high-end medical imaging
devices to be transferred to multiple exam room monitors throughout a provider´s
office, without cables, wires or additional network investment. 

Digital radiography cameras are rapidly replacing traditional x-ray systems in
medical offices of all sizes, because they expose patients to less radiation,
provide higher quality images and greatly simplify record keeping.

"By making it easier to transfer x-ray images from digital sensors to computer
viewing monitors in multiple exam rooms, we can help doctors, dentists and other
healthcare providers extend the value of this expensive equipment while ensuring
the images are associated with the correct patient," explained Dave Bowers, VP
Supplier Marketing for WPG Americas. "With their growing portfolio of NFC
readers and tags, Identive is becoming known as the go-to company for NFC
solutions. We are excited to continue our successful collaboration as we work
together to extend this NFC pairing solution to other applications."

The innovative new solution utilizes NFC tags and readers from Identive with
software from WPG Americas that associates the images from a digital x-ray
camera with the patient records. An NFC tag is affixed to the digital
radiography camera. The tag is simply tapped on one of Identive´s SCL3711 NFC
readers that are attached to the computer in each exam room.  The associated
software then reconfigures the wireless communication between the camera and
local computer to transmit the x-ray images from the camera and associate them
with the appropriate patient record.

"NFC technology makes it possible to move much of what we do in the physical
world to the virtual world, in a way that is easier and more convenient. In the
healthcare market there are dozens of areas that will benefit from the use of
NFC, from making treatment information available to managing patient records.
Partnering with WPG Americas on this NFC transfer solution allowed us to benefit
from their extensive understanding of the medical office environment and their
strong engineering expertise," said Dr. Manfred Mueller, Executive Vice
President and Managing Director of Identive´s ID Infrastructure division.
