Selected by an international panel of experts, BlackBoard Inc. took home a SESAME in the category of Banking/Retail/Loyalty for the BlackBoard MF4100 Contactless Multifunction Reader.

Contactless technology from Blackboard enables consumers to wave their card over a smart reader at the point of acceptance. The Blackboard MF4100 Contactless Multifunction Reader incorporates both contactless and magnetic stripe reader capabilities.

Designed for use in a range of campus applications including copy, point-of-sale or laundry, the MF4100 can be mounted to the wall or installed onto a table top. In addition, the device provides multimedia player capabilities including audio and full video, as well as cardholder interaction via a 5.7” LCD touch screen panel.

Awards are given to global players in the sector: manufacturers, users, integrators and developers. Revealed in Paris, a total of 10 awards were awarded in the categories: Hardware, Software, Identification-ID Card, IT Security, Transportation, Banking / Retail / Loyalty, Trusted Internet / Authentication, Mobility, E-Transactions, Manufacturing & Tests.
