L-1 Identity Solutions has selected the Datacard SP75 Plus card printer for use in the Illinois driver license program. L-1 chose the SP75 Plus printer because of its “reliability, ease-of-use, throughput and speed, form factor and security features.”
The Datacard SP75 Plus card printer is a dye-sublimation printer that provides in-line, dual sided printing and laminating. Paired with enhanced performance and improved card quality from Datacard Certified Supplies, which includes ribbons and laminates that contain radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, this printer assists in meeting security requirements for the issuing agency.
This flexible RFID technology used by the printer (but not contained in the produced cards) works with many laminates which offer state governments unique security features that meet Level One, Two and Three inspection requirements, help provide tamper evidence and assist in the detection of fraudulent documents.
“Datacard Group has clear and focused attention on the US driver’s license market,” said Fred Ketcho, regional vice president of Americas sales and service for Datacard Group. “We’ve delivered a card personalizing solution that is not only extremely easy to install and operate, but meets many of the security requirements defined by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).” Ketcho further said that, “Federal mandates are influencing new security requirements for drivers’ licenses and IDs, and the Datacard product map is well positioned to meet these requirements.”
