Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. announced this morning the successful introduction of its total RFID Solutions at the VICS Conference in Fayetteville, Arkansas. NPDT demonstrated its capabilities as a full RFID solutions provider, including displaying RFID tag programmers, kiosks, mobile computing readers, and tags.

Matthew Jones. Laboratory Manager for the Company’s RFID facility in Bentonville, Arkansas, said it was “important to showcase all of NPDT’s capabilities to potential partners and customers. The conference went a long way to introducing us to the RFID community and put us in the spotlight as the new participant with products and services superior to those presently available.”

Joseph Ray, Wal-Mart Account Manager for NPDT, added, “RFID solutions offered by Newport Digital Technologies puts the Company immediately alongside others currently in the sector. The traffic to our booth, the number of customers and vendors with whom we met, and the exposure we received is important to our future success and certainly exceeded expectations.”

The Company previously announced it is an official sponsor of the University of Arkansas RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) Research Center at the Sam M. Walton College of Business, the leading RFID research center in the world.

“Our recent Item-Level RFID Conference was a success due in large part to our sponsors, of which NPDT was one of five key sponsors,” stated Dr. Bill Hardgrave, Director of University of Arkansas RFID Lab. “We appreciate NPDT’s support of our conference.”

“An RFID tag is incorporated into a product and the radio waves are tracked,” NPDT CEO Gary DeMel explained. “The technology is already used for the tracking of goods in retail, inventory, for passports, toll collection, and libraries. Future use is unlimited and, we believe, will replace the bar code everywhere it exists. We are delighted to be in on the ground floor of this cutting edge technological revolution.”
