High Definition Printing™
The new definition of card printing excellence. The HDP800 series Card Printer / Encoder features FARGO's one-of-a-kind High Definition Printing technology.
Unlike direct-to-card printing, this revolutionary process prints images onto special HDP™ Film which is then fused into the surface of a card through heat and pressure.
This technology offers you a wealth of printing and encoding advantages over traditional
Print quality that is over-the-edge.
The print quality of HDP technology is outstanding. Thanks to its unique printing process, the HDP800 series prints 16.7 million colors at 300 dpi for unsurpassed image clarity and depth.
It prints tightly to the edge of any size smart chip, as well as over-the-edge of a card, giving you professional-quality cards with absolutely no borders. Even on oversized cards!
E-card encoding capabilities.
Perhaps the greatest impact the HDP800 series can have on your organization lies in its e-card encoding capabilities.
The HDP800 series can encode up to three different e-card technologies plus a magnetic stripe on a single card -- all in one pass! It can print and encode standard e-card types, including: contact smart cards, contactless smart cards and proximity cards.
With these e-card encoding capabilities, your organization has access to a whole new level of security and functionality.
Prints on a wide variety of cards.
High Definition Printing shatters the boundaries of direct-to-card printers by allowing you to print and encode card sizes from CR-80 up to CR-100.
Plus, you can print on extra thick cards, like popular clamshell proximity cards, and cards with irregular surfaces, such as proximity and smart cards.
You might expect a printer with such high print quality and flexibility to compromise on performance.
Not this one. It comes standard with 8MB of memory, a Windows® printer driver, and independent printing and encoding stations.
It also offers high-volume print ribbons and 250-card capacity hoppers for fast, uninterrupted batch printing. Plus, for maximum card production, it can even be networked with other HDP printers.
Reliable and easy to use.
The HDP800 series is designed for simple, worry-free operation. It features drop-in ribbon loading, easy-to-load card hoppers that protect cards, and an automatic card cleaning feature that assures the highest print quality.
HDP printing gives you added security.
Remarkable security is another of the many benefits you get with HDP technology.
Because graphics and text are printed on the underside of the HDP Film, the image is "sandwiched" between the durable film and the card. This results in cards that are virtually tamper-proof.
Plus, HDP Film is available with holographic images, giving you the ultimate in advanced card security.
FARGO's HDP800 is so advanced, it will meet virtually all of the card personalization needs of your organization -- now and in the future.
