HID Global has launched its enhanced FARGO HDP5000 high-definition printer/encoder. It is easier to use, more efficient and still the most affordable solution of its class. The HDP5000 continues to be the solution-of-choice for large government, corporate and university ID programs worldwide. It produces quality IDs requiring color printing, card encoding and holographic security features on different technology cards with throughput speeds of up to 150 cards per hour. It now includes an optional, duel-card, input hopper, allowing for automatic switching between two different card types. For security-conscious applications, security is further enhanced with AES256 encryption and an option to erase data from resin print ribbons after a card has been printed.
