Datacard Group Introduces Professional-Grade Capture Solution for Mid- to High-Volume ID Card Issuers

New solution ideal for government ID issuance and other demanding programs

Las Vegas, Nev., March 28, 2007–Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, today introduced the new Datacard® SecureCapture™ solution at the ISC West Conference and Exposition. This robust image capture solution–which includes a capture tower, digital camera, software and a powerful flash–is designed for ID card programs with high volumes or peak image capture demand periods.

The solution features an 8 mega-pixel camera and a high-powered flash, which are enclosed in a secure capture tower. The tower keeps the camera and flash in proper alignment and helps protect against damage or theft. The high-powered flash, which has an exceptional lifespan, eliminates shadows and ambient light, so users can capture high-quality images with exceptional consistency in almost any environment.

The SecureCapture solution also includes intelligent software, which automatically adjusts camera settings and manages lighting, cropping and other time-consuming steps. This allows operators to capture images with a single mouse click. A sleek design and small footprint also makes the SecureCapture solution an attractive and convenient addition to any work area.

“Speed, simplicity and image quality makes the SecureCapture solution a perfect fit for demanding government applications, such as driver’s license programs,” said Connell Smith, vice president of desktop solutions for Datacard Group. “It’s also ideal for colleges and universities facing peak demand periods at the beginning of each semester.”

Built-in USB ports allow users to expand the solution by integrating devices used to capture signatures, fingerprints and other unique identifiers. “Many organizations are looking to make their ID cards more resistant to fraud and forgery,” Smith said. “The SecureCapture solution allows users to incorporate signatures and biometrics, which can enhance card performance and card security.”

Smith expects the solution to be implemented quickly by government agencies and other security- minded organizations.
