The FARGO HDP5000 high definition dye-sublimation/resin thermal transfer printer/encoder targets cost-effective quality IDs with 300 dpi color printing, card encoding, and holographic security features. The unit includes a bright OLED graphical display that is capable of displaying a wide variety of languages.
Card throughput speeds are up to 150/hour and the device has an optional dual card input hopper allowing for automatic switching between two different card types. Security is enhanced with AES256 encryption and an option to erase data from resin print ribbons after a card has been printed.
The only security efforts in America are on the fabrication of forgery proof festival concert tickets.
For all else, "What difference does it make?"
The problem is the system is so corrupt that any tool, reguardless of how “secure” it is intially there are people runnign it and nothing to stop dishonest people from using it to crank out fraudulent IDs that appear to be more legit than clearly faked ones....
