Hypercom Corporation announced that its new 32-bit top-of-the-line Optimum L4150 global payment terminal for multi-lane retailers has received Interac Association Chip 2.0 PED Device Certification for use within the Interac Direct Payment (IDP) network.
The new certification from Canada 's leading electronic payment exchange standards organization means that large, multi-lane retailers can use the L4150 in Canada , and that those with stores in both the U.S. and Canada can establish integrated cross-border payment systems.
The Optimum L4150 has also received PCI PED approval for secure PIN entry; and provides a depot-upgradeable capability that allows contactless and EMV smart card readers to be integrated into the L4150 either before or after delivery without increasing the footprint of the device. In addition, Hypercom's proprietary HyperSafe32 security architecture enables secure and frequent screen changes without requiring manufacturer intervention to authenticate each change to prevent tampering.
"Interac Association Chip PED Device Certification together with the product's existing PCI PED approval and EMV capabilities gives large retailers the brightest, most usable and most future-proof multi-lane payment terminal on the market as well as the newest security technologies," said Gregory Boardman, Vice President, Global Product Marketing, Hypercom Corporation. "This unit strongly positions Hypercom to expand our multi-lane footprint globally."
The L4150 features a new 64K color glass capacitive touch screen that provides the market's brightest and most legible interface for effective interactive advertising at the point-of-sale. The terminal's video-capable 200 MHz processor ensures that it can support bandwidth-intensive graphics and animations as well as high-speed transaction handling without compromising performance.
Hypercom's Optimum L4150 joins a full array of high-performance Optimum countertop, multi-lane, wireless and portable terminals that have been deployed by leading banks, retailers and independent sales organizations globally since Hypercom introduced its first 32-bit Optimum product in 2004.
