High-volume, high-speed ID card personalisation
Built for heavy use, the Rio Pro sets the standard for secure ID card printing. High capacity hoppers (up to 200 cards) and a fast, reliable print engine can produce more than 150 high quality, secure, full colour cards per hour.
Your company logo as a card security feature
Included with all Magicard printers, HoloKote® is patented technology that frosts a secure watermark onto the card’s surface during printing. The Magicard Rio Pro ID card printer offers the option of customising this watermark to your organisation’s unique logo or security design.
Trusted smart card security
The Magicard Rio Pro can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE, DESFire and iClass. Specialist high-security smart card encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the in-line personalisation of payment cards. The Rio Pro can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.
Vibrant colours on every ID card
The Magicard Rio Pro uses colour profiles determined by International Colour Consortium (ICC) to ensure that the image you see on screen is the one you hold in your hands after it is printed. The easy-to-use driver interface also enables you to fine-tune colours to get an exact match for your corporate identity.
