Marquis ID Systems offers secure, high-definition color in polycarbonate technology to safeguard U.S. driver licenses
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Marquis ID Systems (MIDS), a Gemalto Company, announces the inclusion of the award-winning Sealys Color in polycarbonate technology to the company’s line of driver license (DL) solutions. It is the first ever laser printing solution for an unalterable, high-definition, color image combined with the high security and exceptional durability of polycarbonate. Color in polycarbonate couples the advanced document security with the detail and richness of color imagery, and is an ideal solution for jurisdictions where a color photo is required for all driver licenses. To help reduce document forgery, the additional layer of security is based on laser engraving techniques that embed the individual’s information into the card body of the driver license during the personalization process.
In the U.S., the driver license is one of the most prevalent forms of ID with over 211 million in circulation according to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Currently, local governments are faced with the dual challenge of strengthening the integrity of the driver license as well as issuing an increasing number of this form of identity as the U.S. driving population grows. MIDS technologies, such as the color in polycarbonate or document verification tools, can help enhance the security of a driver license, protect the identity of citizens and create a more automated thus efficient issuance system.
Join MIDS at the 2015 American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) conference to be held at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, IA on August 25th-27th and find out more about our complete range of innovative driver license solutions designed to make issuance easier and more secure. We look forward to seeing you at booth #117.
