Since 2009, Xerox has helped thwart thieves and prevent ticket counterfeiting at The Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in Rochester, New York, an event that features nine days of music, thousands of artists performing in hundreds of shows that attract more than 150,000 jazz lovers.
Xerox document security soliutions including MicroText marks -- legible only with a magnifying device; Correlation Marks -- only visible when superimposed by a "key" overlay and Xerox® MicroGloss -- text that’s only readable when viewed at an angle, are being used to safeguard festival passes. The passes are also being printed on ultra-durable Xerox® NeverTear stock ensuring they are safe from the elements and everyday wear and tear.
"Our audience just loves them. They’re collectables actually. And, they’re beautiful. There’s a type of a sound they make that I’ve never heard before. It’s not plastic and it’s not paper. It’s just really, it’s Xerox. It’s unique. And, everybody knows that they’ve got the real thing."
