EnvisionWare solution architects have created a universal media management solution that overcomes the problems with Blu-Ray, double-sided discs, and other RFID media management challenges.  The Case Controller performs a 1-Step Checkout and Unlock, making self checkout of DVDs, CDs, and Playaways  fast and easy.


Media theft control requires special measures in some libraries.  The variety of options for media control from EnvisionWare are the broadest in the industry.  The collective expertise of seasoned professionals is unmatched, and the wisdom for item protection goes far beyond simple technical achievement.  Our consulting staff works with each customer to assess current and future needs and to apply the proper mix of solutions that will provide the optimal, cost-effective implementation.

If you are an EnvisionWare RFID customer, then you already know about our remarkable extended range media hub tag for CDs.  More powerful than any other hub tag, the unique extended range tag was an innovation created to balance maximum self service adoption against optimal protection at low cost.  The unique DVD tag is a full-size tag that extends the range of detection for DVDs.
