(Greenville , SC , USA) August 29, 2006 – Digital Identification Solutions, a global provider of secure credential solutions, announces that they have officially received General Services Administration certification on August 16th , 2006. The EDIsecure® XID590i Re-transfer Card Printer and the modular Inline Lamination Unit are posted as a combined product offering in the GSA Approved FIPS 201 Products and Services List as the DIK10215-Combo under the section GSA Card Printer Station.

Options available for the RoHS-compliant DIK10215-Combo include inline reader/encoders such as the GSA FIPS 201 approved MIFARE DESFire reader/encoder from Integrated Engineering, as well as a host of contact and contactless reader/encoders from DigiOn24, Gemalto, HID, LEGIC, OMNIKEY, and RFIdeas. It is possible to have up to three different encoders in the EDIsecure® XID590i printer at the same time for crucial secure credential projects. Additional features of the X ID590i include 24-bit, process quality, over-the-edge printing, the largest selection of printable materials in the industry, a lifetime warranty on the print head, and a 3-year standard warranty on all parts and labor*.

The DIK10215-Combo also includes the field-installable Inline Lamination Unit (ILU) which offers unique features such as fast, portrait mode lamination, up to 1,250 OVDs per roll, and custom or generic contact chip cut-out patch laminates. The ILU attaches easily to the XID590i by use of a metal base plate and a single communication cable. A pass-through feature allows for the printer to send cards through the ILU without laminating on a per card basis if needed. This printer/laminator combination with inline encoding allows you to complete the entire complex card production in a single pass.

Lawrence J. Bujak, DIS' Business Development Manager for the government sector, states that " the EDIsecure® DIK10215-Combo provides FIPS 201 system integrators and federal agencies the tools necessary to meet the looming HSPD-12 October 27 th deadline. With the NETencoding Management (NeM) and the Advanced Intelligent Printer Management (IPM) features, we have the ability to network 7 printers together to produce up to 840 cards per hour for cost-effective, desktop issuance of high-quality, secure credentials.
