“It is a true honor to be selected as one of 11 winners at the 2017 NACDS Total Store Expo awards, and the overall winner of the Photo category,” said Katsuyuki Oshima, President of DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation. “This award reaffirms our commitment to providing the retail industry with solutions that increase productivity, flexibility and profitability, just like the IDW500 ID and Passport Photo Solution.”
The IDW500 is a complete image capture and printing system that includes DNP’s Photo ID printer, digital camera with wireless transfer, system console, and ID photo media. The system is designed to produce passport and ID photos that are automatically evaluated biometrically and formatted to comply with government requirements for the USA and many other countries’ passports and visas, eliminating rejections and keeping customers happy.
The system’s touchscreen mini console has a 6.8-inch display and software that allows operators to quickly view, select, edit, and print pictures. The system’s digital camera is configured for swift and reliable wireless transfer to the system console. The system image processing performs eight different biometric checks on all images, presenting the result to the operator for printing. The automatic functions of the system eliminate the need for manual adjustment and reduce the risk of operator error. The IDW500 software also creates a gallery of the past six captured images, allowing for easy reprints, or changing the ID template without taking another picture.
This comprehensive solution results in a solid workflow for faster production with consistent, high-quality results. Customers also have the added choice to also output their images to USB stick for digital delivery.
