Lexmark wins FBI approval

Tech brief

GOOD TO GO: The FBI has certified two Lexmark printers for printing fingerprints in color.

Lexmark International Inc. of Lexington, Ky., announced on March 14 that its Lexmark C524 and C534 printers, combined with Mentalix Inc.'s CardPrint software, have been certified by the FBI for printing fingerprint cards in color. The new solution means that law enforcement agencies no longer need to restrict printing to black and white or, if color is used for documents, to attach fingerprints as separate documents.
