DNP IDW520 Passport and ID All-in-One Photo Printing Solution


Concord, NC—DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation released its new IDW520 Passport and ID photo solution. The IDW520 system produces passport and ID photos that comply with strict federal regulations. The company says the new system will add a highly profitable service to any photo business or retail store.

The IDW520 system contains DNP’s smallest and lightest passport printer, weighing 13 pounds. This all-in-one solution also includes a Panasonic Lumix FZ80 camera; a FlashAir card; a touch-screen monitor; and the ID photo printer. As a result, customers have everything they need right out of the box.

The new system also simplifies the ID photo process, from taking the photo and making adjustments to meet federal regulations to printing the image.

“Offering ID photo printing is one of the most profitable services that a retail store or photo business can offer,” said Shinichi Yamashita, president of DNP IAM. “One of the hardest parts about offering passport and ID photo services is ensuring your customers walk away with a photo that meets all of the requirements.

“With the new IDW520, businesses have everything they need to deploy a new ID photo printing service right away, including the software that helps make adjustments to photos based on these regulations. On top of that, the solution is compact and user friendly; so retail stores can easily add the new IDW520 to their already existing photo service areas.”

The DNP solution supports and produces IDs for 17 different countries, including specialty ID templates. Moreover, it uses a faster image processor and six built-in image checks that adjust the head, size, position, tilt and crop. Consequently, the IDW520 helps ensure passport photos will meet strict federal requirements.

In addition, its software creates a gallery of the past six photos taken. This enables operators to make easy reprints or template changes without the need to take another photo. What’s more, the IDW520 produces the same quality dye-sublimation images for which DNP photo printers are known.
