HID Global’s HID FARGO HDP6600 High Definition printer/encoder receives GreenCircle certification

HID Global, a global provider of trusted identity solutions, announced that its HID FARGO HDP6600 high definition printer/encoder is the first and only retransfer printing solution for ID card personalisation that has GreenCircle certification. The printer’s power-efficient design enables users to save thousands of dollars in annual energy costs for large projects spanning many printers.   The HDP6600 printer achieves its breakthrough energy efficiency using a design that also delivers the fastest overall throughput speeds and shortest time until the first card is printed. Sustainability is further improved through an optional wasteless lamination module that dramatically reduces the waste by-products that other printers generate. The module cuts consumables costs nearly in half for printed and laminated cards. Best-in-class energy efficiency HID Global’s sixth-generation HID FARGO HDP6600 printer halves the time required to print the first ID card as compared to many alternatives“By combining our patent-pending iON “instant on” technology with an innovative design that permits simultaneous film printing and card retransfer processes, we’ve created one of the world’s fastest solutions while also eliminating the need for continuous transfer heating,” said Craig Sandness, Vice President and Managing Director for Secure Issuance with HID Global. “This advancement enabled us to achieve best-in-class energy efficiency that has now been independently validated through the GreenCircle certification program.” Doubling the card printing speed HID Global’s sixth-generation HID FARGO HDP6600 printer halves the time required to print the first ID card as compared to many alternatives, while doubling overall throughput to up to 230 cards per hour. It is also easier to service and more flexible to use across a wider range of applications, and less expensive to operate with a lower printing cost per card. The printer offers true 600 DPI resolution with precision colour panel registration for sharper text, crisper barcode edges and more vibrant colours than products that use dithering techniques and can only approximate this image quality. 

HID Global launches HID Origo cloud platform to create seamless and intuitive workplace experiences

HID Global, a global provider of trusted identity solutions, announced the availability of its HID Origo cloud platform that opens a brand-new world of opportunities for partners to create more seamless and intuitive workplace experiences that are built on HID’s proven access control infrastructure. The platform combines HID’s technologies for mobile IDs (and location services in the future) with its expansive access control architecture to bring together physical security and a wide range of building applications, services and IoT use cases via a unified cloud experience. Cloud-based access control technologies “HID Origo lays the foundation for a broad ecosystem of cloud-based access control technologies, products, services and business models that will accelerate workplace innovation; it dramatically increases our partners’ capabilities to create more connected and seamless building experiences for end users,” said Hilding Arrehed, Vice President of Cloud Services, Physical Access Control, with HID Global. “The platform will remove integration barriers between access control systems and smart building applications, and we will continue to expand its value with capabilities that further improve how people securely move through a facility and interact with its services.” Embedding cloud connections and IoT functionality The HID Origo platform embeds cloud connections and IoT functionality as app extensions into mobile devices, HID readers and controllersThe new platform provides an app-based innovation model that delivers a comprehensive suite of integration, enablement, developer tools and services geared towards simplifying how partners and a growing community of new developers and resellers bring access control solutions to market. Rather than requiring that entire solutions be developed and enabled one customer or site at a time, HID Origo will make it possible to develop new applications and integrated solutions for HID’s complete installed base of millions of access control devices and system—all at once. The HID Origo platform embeds cloud connections and IoT functionality as app extensions into mobile devices, HID readers and controllers, and gives developers direct access to this hardware via HID Origo application programming interfaces (APIs) and software developer kits (SDK) already proven through HID’s mobile access solution. Predictive access control system maintenance The subscription billing model offered through HID Origo makes it easier for the company to order and manage mobile IDsThe platform also enables data analytics to be used for new capabilities, including remote reader configuration, predictive access control system maintenance and intent detection for more seamless and personalised workplace experiences. Today, the platform enables subscription-based services, with customers already taking advantage of the model’s simplicity. Examples include a deployment by a world-leading biotechnology company who has been an early adopter of HID Origo subscription services for ordering and managing mobile ID replenishment over the air when employees lose or must replace their smartphones. The company has replaced its traditional access control readers with 2,300 Bluetooth-enabled iCLASS SE readers to support their mixed environment of 12,000 mobile IDs and 40,000 Seos ID cards. The subscription billing model offered through HID Origo makes it easier for the company to order and manage mobile IDs while improving forecasting, budgeting and reporting. It also streamlines transferring mobile ID subscription licenses across employees and registering multiple mobile IDs across multiple devices without any additional cost.
