Datacard Group announced that Imprimerie Nationale—the official supplier and printer to the French Government—has selected Datacard Group as its provider of choice for their e-passport program in France.
Imprimerie Nationale is working with Datacard Group on an implementation that will consist of installing Datacard® PB6500™ passport issuance systems. Issuing up to 25,000 French passports daily, the PB6500 passport system is an automated, inline high-volume passport production system offering a flexible, modular design.
For this project, Datacard Group provided a configuration that includes automated leafing, inline inkjet printing, smart card encoding, laser perforation and enhanced lamination of secure thin-film overlays. Datacard® Syntera® customization suite software was also installed as a universal interface, providing a uniquely flexible bridge that links the PB6500 passport systems.
Every day, Datacard solutions personalize and deliver more than 10 million cards, 5 million smart cards, and issue hundreds of thousands of passports worldwide. The company offers a Secure Issuance Anywhere™ platform, which offers the broadest portfolio of solutions that include best-in-class personalization, identity management software, supplies and service that have been implemented in more than 400 government programs in over 100 countries.
