The oversized ID badge printer will be used to print more than 700 ID badges to visually identify members of the media and to show their proper credentials. Hundreds of media professionals will be attending the event. Being able to identify the members of the media quickly and efficiently is important to the safety of the attendees.
Idesco is the exclusive U.S. Dealer for the XXL 2.0 oversized card printer. The XXL 2.0 ID card printer is designed to personalize oversized ID cards on demand. Idesco states that oversized photo ID cards let users visually scan a crowd and identify at a glance who has proper credentials and access rights to designated areas.
“As you can imagine, with an event of this size, the ability to visually identify authorized members of the working media from organizations all over the world can be a challenging task. This year Idesco really stepped up to the plate to provide us with the latest oversized credential printer technology to make media credentials that are larger than our typical ID badges so that they are more prominent and easier to read,” states James Ferguson, director of security for Little League Baseball and Softball, Inc.
“Idesco has secured major event venues in the past and with the XXL 2.0 printer, securing large-scale events has become a lot easier,” states Andrew Schonzeit, president of Idesco. “It is a true honor to offer this outstanding solution to help protect not only our children and staff, but also the attendees of this premier event.”
The XXL 2.0 printer features a Plug & Play driver for Windows and Mac, standard USB, and a convenient display, making it a good choice for an event of this magnitude. The XXL printer can print up to 180 full cards per hour in color, and up to 1,400 cards per hour in monochrome.
The production power gives The Little League World Series staff the ability to print the large quantity needed for this event as well as the ability to print badges instantly for those who register late. Additionally, the cards are extremely durable and can be flipped manually to issue dual-sided badges.
Idesco offers a full range of security products including digital ID badging systems, access control, biometrics, turnstiles, visitor management, and digital video surveillance.
