SECOM GMixon Pixeliris Uses Sonic Communication to Create a Universal Contactless Mobile Payment System

This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateFall 2013.


Beginning the final session of FinovateFall, SECOM GMixon Pixeliris demonstrated its universal, contactless mobile payment system:
“Pixeliris Labs’ unique contactless technology allows us today to create the first universal contactless mobile payment system. Based on sonic communication, our technology is compatible with 100% of existing phones and smartphones unlike NFC technologies which are compatible with only 5% of the smartphones and incompatible with phones. 
Several patents have been filed with regard to the security of the transaction. We have developed this technology into a SDK as to allow third companies to integrate the modules aiming a business model based on transaction fees.
With Copsonic, pay anywhere with any phone.”
