CR805 Retransfer Card Printer
In April 2017, Entrust Datacard launched its CR805 Retransfer Card Printer allowing banks to instantly provide customers with payment cards that combine beautiful, long-lasting images with enhanced security, durability and reliability. By combining decades of central and desktop issuance expertise (working with the top 20 financial institutions), Entrust Datacard gave banks the flexibility to instantly print whatever cards customers need – wherever and whenever they need them.
The new CR805 Retransfer Card provides a variety of benefits that warrant an Innovative Solutions Award, including:
- High resolution (600 dpi) graphics produced with pigment ink, allows for a wide color spectrum, fine line details and images that won’t fade over time
- Enhancements built into the system prevent the machine from starting up should there be any indication of malware or threats. The printer also includes a TPM module that provides for the secure storage of keys and certificates, enhanced TLS encryption, and an optional key lock that helps to safeguard against unauthorized use.
- Retransfer printing produces cards with over-the-card-edge and up-to-the-chip printing that allows financial institutions and community banks to promote their brand and engage with individuals through high-quality graphics that cannot be accomplished with direct-to-card printing. The introduction of these printers to the market will change issuers’ card printing expectations.
- Modular design provides versatility, allowing for easy upgrade as program needs change. In addition, the ease of use ensures cards can be printed as needed, with minimal interaction with the printer.
