    Lexmark, Mentalix deliver first FBI-certified color fingerprint card printer solution for law enforcemenT
    Ky., March 07 Lexmark International, Inc.,  is collaborating with
    fingerprint systemvendor Mentalix, Inc., to give law enforcement
    agencies the first color printing solution for fingerprint card
    printers to be certified by the FBI.

    CardPrint Application Program Interface (API) Toolkit works on the
    Lexmark C524 and C534 color laser printer families and allows law
    enforcement officials to print color imaging, color boundaries and
    fingerprint images on a single sheet of blank card stock to speed up
    processes and save costs. Currently, fingerprint cards have pre-printed
    boundaries that make it difficult to combine fingerprints with other
    documents, and imaging is usually attached in a separate document with
    staples or a paper clip that can be easily separated or lost.This
    solution has received certification from the FBI and can be tailored to
    support custom fingerprint card templates. The CardPrint API Toolkit
    runs on Microsoft(R) Windows XP Professional and is also FBI-certified
    for use with the Lexmark T640 monochrome laser printer family for
    customers that only need to print in black and white. Fingerprints
    printed with the toolkit on the T640 family, C524 or C534 will be
    accepted by the FBI for comparisons with the Bureau’s Integrated
    Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS).”We’ve already had
    a positive response to this breakthrough from our customers,
    particularly those who would like to print color imaging directly on
    their fingerprint cards,” said Brian Gross, president of Mentalix.
    “This solution helps agencies cut costs because they can print a
    variety of fingerprint card types on the same raw card stock and no
    longer have to keep different card types and sizes in their office
    inventory.” “Lexmark’s combination of vertical industry expertise and
    our technology ownership allows us to develop integrated, customized
    solutions for our customers that help them increase productivity and
    reduce costs,” said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president and
    president of its Printing Solutions and Services Division. “We are
    pleased to partner with Mentalix to deliver this advanced capability
    for law enforcement customers.”
