It also keeps track of when an ID was printed (so, if you're doing 700 of them and only get 200 done in a day, you can see where you're up to).
It is set up to work with our Magicard Tempo printer,
I've just posted a new article about how to get the DigiBlue camera to work for stop motion animation in Ubuntu Linux.
As the DigiBlue cameras are very Windows oriented, I decided to try and get one to work in a similar fashion in Ubuntu. Sadly, the process isn't quite as fluid but it is a lot more flexible as there are a plethora of software packages available for stop motion editing and video editing, some being ultra-simple (Luciole), others being more complex (Cinelerra).
