Datacard unveiled its latest direct to card printer called the SD460. This direct to card printer will be replacing the durable and long tenured SP75 Plus. Although many have been clamoring for a newer version of the SP75 Plus, there is no denying that the SP75 Plus was a workhorse and excellent direct to card and laminating printer. While the first version of the SP75 was unsuccessful due to laminating module issues, the SP75 Plus fixed those issues and provided an industry with a stable direct to card and laminating printer.
The new SD460 printer is slated for availability in Q2 of 2014 and offers a variety of new features. One such security feature is an industry first "Tactile Impression Die" that comes in generic or customizable designs. After the printing process has been completed, the die is pressed into the card surface leaving a permanent impression of the die into the card. The SD460 is based off the current SD260/360 printer line for the printing process whereas the laminating module is completely redesigned and new. Additional advanced features include easy load lamination supplies and the ability to use several types of protective coverings: DuraShield Overlay or DuraGard Laminate in .5 or 1.0 mil thicknesses. Print & laminate speeds are an impressive 200 cards per hour as well.

HID recently introduced the latest version of their very successful multiCLASS/magstripe readers. These hybrid readers were introduced originally to ease the transition from mag stripe cards to HID iCLASS and Prox cards for physical access. Since the introduction of iCLASS SE, HID has now incorporated their latest multiCLASS SE module into these combination mag stripe readers. Probably the most versatile and secure readers on the market today, they can be configured to read HID credentials from iCLASS SE, standard iCLASS, MIFARE and MIFARE DESFire EV1 cards, as well as HID, AWID, CASI RUSCO and Prox cards.
With experience in helping over twelve hundred universities, ColorID is uniquely positioned to help campuses navigate away from mag stripes to contactless card technology. These new readers are an important part of that migration strategy.
