Avery Dennison RFID Introduces New RFID 101 Multimedia Training Tool
CLINTON, S.C.—Avery Dennison RFID announced that it has produced RFID 101, a multimedia training tool that combines a live narrator with animations, photos and video to walk the viewer through the history of RFID, technology basics, applications and markets, system components, RFID label converting, and tag testing and quality. Each major topic is a separate module, allowing the viewer to watch the presentation from start to finish (about 55 minutes) or to customize the presentation by watching select modules.
Content for RFID 101 was developed by the technical team based at Avery Dennison RFID’s Atlanta Technical Center (ATC). Much of the content was inspired by Avery Dennison’s work with myriad end users and other RFID stakeholders who have visited ATC over the last couple of years for free product testing and other technical services & training.
“We produced RFID 101 to help folks get up to speed quickly on RFID without spending a lot of money,” said George Reynolds, vice president of sales and marketing at Avery Dennison RFID. “We understand RFID is a complex subject and this presentation covers all the basics. RFID 101 can be passed around the office, viewed by a group or sent by a converter or systems integrator to a customer. And, we’ve made it easy to get a free copy—call us at (866) 903-7343 or visit our Web site – www.rfid.averydennison.com.”
Reynolds added, “We are dedicated to doing all we can to ensure successful RFID implementations. RFID 101 is just one of many training and educational initiatives we offer to help manufacturers, retailers, systems integrators and tag converters understand, explain and deploy RFID in the real world.”
The subjects covered by RFID 101 are:
Why RFID? — History and current applications.
ABCs of EPC — Electronic Product Codes and other industry standards.
How RFID Works — Technology overview and system configurations.
