At B&C Speakers, we do our very best to provide a clear and authentic path to our products, but sadly, we have encountered some products of questionable origin in a few markets around the world. We are attacking any possible sources, but this is not always easy.
In an effort to provide a higher level of comfort to our customers, B&C has begun to use a new technology called ViSeQR® STRIPE
. Starting in spring 2016
, B&C began to add a simple ViSeQR® STRIPE label to each B&C product that has been produced for general distribution. We have also offered this technology to all our OEM partners, who may at their option add this label to their products as well.
ViSeQR® STRIPE technology protects companies from counterfeiting and ensures the traceability of products. The consumer can verify the authenticity of a product directly from any smartphone device; just taking a picture of the smart stamp to verify it on the free App.
The ViSeQR® smart stamp integrates a common technology of optical reading (bar codes) with a procedure developed by ViDiTrust
, which establishes a link between the public information present in the bar code, and the “private” information that is invisible to the human eye. The smart stamp that B&C is applying uses a rectangular design that measures approximately 1×3 cm. This smart stamp is NOT a simple QR code. The coloured frame is not reproducible, and the integration of the stamp in the graphic print generates specific printed elements that can not be counterfeited.Verification Process
If you find a ViSeQR® STRIPE label on your B&C product, you can verify that product using the ViSeQR® STRIPE app, which is available for most iOS and Android devices.
- Download the app from Apple App Store or Google Play, and install it on your device. Search for "ViseQR STRIPE". Make sure you are downloading the specific ViSeQR© STRIPE application, and installing it on a certified smartphones device with a camera of 5MB of higher. If you need the Android version and are unable to use Google Play, you can download the app directly here on the Viditrust web site.
- Find the ViSeQR® STRIPE label on your B&C product, and scan it using the app (Internet access is required at the time of scanning).
- The application will confirm if the item is of real or questionable origin by responding with a message that says "True ID!" or "Authentic Product", and you will be direct to a B&C Speakers web site page with more information about the ViSeQR STRIPE technology.
- In the event that the item is of questionable origin, the application will direct you to a B&C Speakers web site page that will explain your options.
