HONG KONG -- March 27, 2013

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today announced
it has launched its enhanced FARGO^® HDP5000 High Definition Printer/Encoder,
the industry’s most popular, reliable and cost-effective solution for
retransfer printing at CARTES Asia in Hong Kong. Featuring the company’s fifth
generation of High Definition Printing™ (HDP^®) technology, the enhanced
HDP5000 now includes an expanded feature set and is the ideal solution for
government, corporations and universities looking to cost-effectively produce
quality IDs requiring color printing, card encoding and holographic security
features on different technology cards.

The HDP5000 printer/encoder now features a new and brighter OLED graphical
display that is capable of displaying a wide variety of different languages
for use in emerging and mature markets throughout the world. For increased
productivity, the HDP5000 also features increased card throughput speeds of up
to 150 cards per hour and now includes an optional dual card input hopper
allowing for automatic switching between two different card types. For
security-conscious applications, security is further enhanced with AES256
encryption and an option to erase data from resin print ribbons after a card
has been printed. On the GSA list for FIPS 201 Approved Products, the HDP5000
is also designed to help federal agencies comply with emerging federal secure
identification directives and standards such as HSPD-12, FIPS 201 and PIV.

“With this enhanced HDP5000 solution, HID Global has renewed our commitment to
our customers by making what has been the best product of its class even more
efficient, easier to use and better suited to the various government,
corporate and university ID programs around the world,” said Alan Fontanella,
vice president of product marketing for Secure Issuance with HID Global.
“Unique additions like the dual card hopper for instance, result in greater
efficiency for our customers who, like the U.S. Department of Defense, can now
simultaneously print to both smart chip cards needed for active military
personnel and also to the non-technology cards needed for retirees and family

For over 14 years, HDP technology has led the industry in reliability,
affordability and versatility for a wide range of customers worldwide:

  *For government and federal customers, the HDP5000 meets the high security
    demanded for employee and contractor badges as illustrated by its
    continued adoption with the U.S. Department of Defense. It is also ideal
    for the issuance of drivers’ licenses and national IDs as demonstrated by
    the number of governments throughout Asia who have chosen the HDP5000, and
    deployed several hundred to more than 1,000 units in each of their
    respective ID programs.
  *Large businesses such as Korea’s two retail giants Home Plus and E-Mart,
    the HDP5000 was selected for implementing streamlined issuance of their
    customer loyalty cards.
  *With the demand for multi-functional student cards on the rise; hundreds
    of universities worldwide utilize the HDP5000 to issue student ID cards
    that can be used for physical access to buildings, logical access to
    networks, library checkout and other services, as well as cashless and
    debit card transactions on and off campus.
