Subtitle: New ID card platform supports payment, integration to additional
school services and applications

DENVER, Colorado, June 14, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Multicard, a leading supplier of
credential solutions, identity management and system integration services and a
business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE: Frankfurt: INV), announced
today it is implementing a new, secure identity card platform for the Auraria
Higher Education Center (AHEC) Campus in Denver, Colorado. The new contactless
smart cards initially will be utilized within the campus's existing door access
system; students with a campus bank account can also use the IDs as a Visa®
debit card. The new ID cards are based on open standards technology, allowing
them to be integrated with additional applications for student services over
time. Other applications planned for the cards include parking, meal payment,
library check-out, event management and various tracking capabilities for lab
and recreational center use as well as emergency incidents.

The AHEC Campus is a unique educational site located in the heart of the Denver
Metro area, hosting three separate educational institutions: the Community
College of Denver, Metropolitan State College of Denver and the University of
Colorado-Denver. The campus serves over 45,000 students, faculty and staff on an
annual basis. A number of shared services exist on the joint campus, including
the central issuance of institution-specific identity cards to all students and

Multicard has provided the AHEC campus with card personalization systems for a
number of years to provide physical access to campus facilities. "AHEC is
pleased and satisfied with this upgrade; this project would have been very
difficult to implement without the technical support provided to us by
Multicard," said Shaqaiq Birashk of AHEC's ID Cards Office.

AHEC contracted with Multicard to upgrade the existing campus identification
card system, so that they would have the option of encoding contactless smart
cards for use alongside their existing magnetic stripe cards. Multicard began
with developing secure encryption key technology for AHEC to prevent hacking
attempts, and later upgraded the campus's existing printers to encode both smart
card stock and magnetic stripe card stock, allowing the campus to migrate to
chip-based ID cards over time.  

"The Auraria campus is establishing best practices for campus environments in
terms of implementing a multi-function contactless card," said Hugo Garcia,
president of Multicard U.S. "By electing to utilize standards-based smart cards,
they are benefitting from the highest level of encryption technology while
avoiding the costs and inflexibility associated with proprietary card
