Datacard Group Introduces Exclusive New Low-End Camera for Secure Id Photo Capture

Low-cost camera features an internal flash that works while tethered to a computer

Dallas, TX September 27, 2004 Datacard Group, the world leader in secure ID and card personalization solutions, introduced its exclusive new Datacard? CS-100 digital camera today at the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) Seminar and Exhibition in Dallas, Texas.

"This is the ideal camera for low-volume photo ID issuers who insist on high-quality images for a low cost," said Mike Schnaus, vice president of marketing and corporate development for Datacard. "The CS-100 camera, combined with our card printer and identification software offerings, provide schools, small corporations and other organizations with complete low-end photo ID solutions that are tested, supported and serviced by Datacard Group," said Schnaus.

The CS-100 camera also solves a common problem faced by low-volume secure ID card issuers. "There are a number of low-end, low cost cameras on the market that have internal flashes that are automatically disabled when tethered to a computer," said Schnaus. "Having a functioning flash when the camera is connected to the computer is a key requirement for ID card issuance, and the CS-100 camera meets this need," he said.

Offered exclusively by Datacard Group, the CS-100 camera is not available in retail stores. The camera comes with a TWAIN driver that is available in 11 languages and is easily integrated with Datacard? ID software when using Microsoft? Windows? 98SE, Windows? 2000 Professional or Windows? XP operating systems. Also included are accessories that help complete a photo ID system setup: a USB cable, adjustable tripod, backdrop and stand.

Datacard Group offers the world's best-selling secure ID and card personalization solutions. The company's portfolio includes systems for high-volume card issuance, card delivery, secure ID issuance and passport production, plus extensive service and supplies offerings (
