  • ƒƒ Highly versatile – Powerful printing in a modular, scalable design that simplifies

Designed for government ID projects, universities and colleges, K-12 schools, healthcare facilities, and small-to-medium corporations, the DTC1500 boasts distinctive security features that are ideal for these organizations. A built-in, custom watermark overlay function allows for the application of a customized  transparent security image such as a logo, symbol, or text – to be integrated as a permanent watermark within the printed card’s overlay panel – making duplication virtually impossible. The DTC1500 custom watermark provides organizations with a cost-efficient way to significantly increase card security and thwart wouldbe-counterfeiters without additional investment in holographic overlaminates or foil cards.

The DTC1500 also comes equipped with a unique resin scramble data protection feature – providing an additional layer of security by hiding any information printed with a resin panel – rendering the panel unreadable. Standard password protection and AES 256 data encryption provide additional peace of mind.

What’s more, built-in dual-side printing can be activated with the simple use of an RFID tag making after-purchase upgrades virtually effortless. Due to its modular,
scalable design - optional lamination or encoding modules can also be added at any time.

Security, lower cost, innovation, and versatility – it all comes standard with the DTC1500.
