PARIS -- VeriFone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY; TASE: PAY) today announced the launch of an EMV Level 2-approved solution for the MX870 multimedia platform. The solution, which has been developed in partnership with Smart Technology Solutions Limited (STS), provides retailers with the ability to deploy a single unit offering multimedia interaction with customers as well as an EMV-certified PIN pad. Multi-applications enabled on the MX870 such as EMV, Signature Capture, and advertising and promotion solutions can be managed with the launch of a new tool: VeriFone's VisualPayments Suite. VisualPayments is a set of secure, server-based applications that enables estate and content management of data and applications.
The MX870 merges full-motion video, a 65,536 colour display, high quality digital sound and is PCI PED approved by Visa and MasterCard, delivering a highly secure payments solution in a single, easy-to-use device.
The EMV software solution leverages STS' SmartNS framework to provide the EMV link to integrated retail systems. Emvelink, STS' EMV-certified Level 2 application, has recently been updated to include support for multiple languages. "This EMV solution for the MX870, now coupled with VeriFone's powerful VisualPayments Suite, offers exciting possibilities and a new vision in payments for customers with integrated retail systems," said Nigel Bidmead, managing director for VeriFone EMEA. "STS' significant expertise in delivering solutions quickly to the market and getting them right first time makes them a strong solution partner for VeriFone."
