HID unveils DTC update


HID Global has unveiled a major update to its FARGO Direct-to-Card (DTC) printer line that the company claims significantly expands the secure issuance capabilities for small, medium and large private and government organisations producing ID, access control, payment and loyalty cards.

One of the most widely- adopted printer/encoder lines on the market, the company’s enhanced FARGO DTC printers now feature an embedded multi-technology iCLASS SE Encoder to simplify card technology migration and personalise large ID card batches, all from within the printer.


The DTC portfolio also includes expanded in-line personalisation features that offer faster speeds and increased flexibility with the optional wireless accessory module that allows users to issue cards at anytime, from anywhere.


“Since its original launch in 2010, our FARGO DTC line of printers have been relied on more than any other brand to produce hundreds of millions of secure identification credentials around the world,” says Craig Sandness, vice president of product marketing, Secure Issuance with HID Global. “With these new DTC enhancements, our printers are now 50% faster, dramatically saving issuance time for our customers while reinforcing our dedication to continually increasing the value of their Genuine HID investments.”


According to HID, enhancements to its DTC line are designed to further streamline and improve card and ID issuance while making it easier to enrol, personalise and issue higher volumes of cards with faster throughput and a variety of new security, encoding and mobile issuance options.
