ROGUE DNA 4110 PASSPORT/VISA PRINTER
The 4110 printer is specifically designed to print in-book. The booklet is fed in via a front-loading feeder tray - once sensors detect that it's correctly positioned the tray is drawn fully into the printer where a second set of sensors ensure that it's precisely in place. The printer includes an optional software application which can print the personal details page or a visa. Print options include the ability to use security inks including UV and IR. Two separate UV inks can be printed simultaneously if required. The 4110 is available in six different colours.
If the booklet is an electronic passport an optional RFID writer can write the personal details to the chip. This conforms to ICAO standards.
The feeder tray has been designed to accommodate a thickness of over 100 pages so a visa can be printed on any page. The time to print a data page depends on resolution but can take less than 20 seconds The 4110 includes two multi-compartment ink cartridge slots, allowing up to six separate inks to be used. The cartridges are locked to the specific printer or organization for security purposes. Access to the cartridges is physically lockable.
The printer can be fitted with an integrated passport scanner which enables personal data to be printed in exactly the right position relative to preprinted text on the page. It does this by matching the actual position of the preprinted content against a standard template. The printing location can then be adjusted to reflect any variance. The process is totally automatic and does not require recalibration. The use of a passport scanner rather than a simple camera system provides the ability to automatically verify that the personalized data was printed correctly. The scanner reads the page after it has been printed, and matches the content against a template. It matches the printed content (both visible and UV) against the standard for the passport in question. If the actual content doesn't match this is immediately notified to the operator, who can check the ink and alignment levels to ensure that the passport can be reprinted correctly. This provides the best possible quality assurance.
At each stage the current status is displayed on an LCD screen on top of the printer.
Visas can be printed directly in-book or individual stickers can be loaded in the feeder tray.
A software program is available, either as an application or as an SDK, to populate and print passport details in the correct locations on the personal details page.
