The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology to deliver the highest quality images at a price that lots of organizations can afford.

HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. This printing system provides the most advanced card printing methodology available, making use of dye sublimation technology in order to print ultra-crisp 300 dpi images on the reverse side of Fargo's HDP film.
The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards and conforms to any indentations and ridges formed by embedded electronics to create an extra layer of durability and security.
In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.
High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Health care facilities, businesses and corporations, loyalty and membership programs, colleges, and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.
The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for this kind of printing and customization because of the many options available on the printer, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies.

For example, a retail chain can produce cards from any of their locations. On a corporate campus or university, you can set up an array of printer/encoders in a central location to enable high-volume production.
