Magicard Rio Pro Description

Built for professionals, the Magicard Rio Pro printer is made with high quality materials and is packed with features. Its superior print quality is enhanced with the patented HoloKote watermark feature. All of this is backed by an industry-leading warranty program.

Product Features

  • Intuitive user interface
    The compact Magicard Rio Pro printer features a clear 4-line display that provides easy-to-understand instructions and status messages. Its printer driver supports Microsoft Windows, making it easy to install and use.

  • Batch or single-feed printing
    The Magicard Rio Pro card printer's 100-card capacity input hopper and 70-card stacker provide worry-free, continuous batch card printing. You also have the flexibility to produce cards on-the-fly with the hand-feed slot.

  • Card security made easy and inexpensive
    Magicard's exclusive HoloKote feature allows you to print a watermark with the Rio Pro printer without any added costs. The watermark is printed during the normal card printing cycle using the O panel of a standard color ribbon - there is no need to purchase expensive holographic lamination. The HoloKote watermark becomes visible when the card is viewed at an angle and can be easily enabled or disabled in your printer driver.HoloKote for the Magicard Rio Pro 3652-0001 is available in four patterns: globes, keys, interlocking squares, or waves. When using the HoloKote option, the pattern of your choice is printed repeatedly across your card.For additional card security, the HoloKote Custom Key and HoloKote Custom FLEX Key allows you to print custom graphics and text.When HoloKote is used along with Magicard HoloPatch cards, one area of the watermark becomes a high-visibility security seal with an appearance similar to a holographic patch, at a fraction of the cost.

  • Three-year warranty
    Backed with an industry-leading three-year UltraCoverPlus warranty and support that includes full printhead coverage and free loaner service, your Magicard Rio Pro printing program will always be operational.

  • Built-in USB and Ethernet
    The Magicard Rio Pro has built-in USB and Ethernet with Windows 7, XP, and Vista (32/64 bit) compatibility.

  • Card printing flexibility
    The Rio Pro offers complete card printing flexibility. Not only can you print standard dye-sublimation and thermal resin cards, the Rio Pro is also capable of rewrite printing. Rewrite printing allows you to print, erase and reprint cards for efficiency and cost-savings.With the Rio Pro, you can batch print a color design on one side of your cards, remove the ribbon (no ribbon is needed with rewrite printing) and then use the rewrite feature and hand-feed slot to individually print, erase and update information on the other side using Magicard thermal rewritable card stock.

  • Optional encoding
    Add magnetic stripe, contactless, and smart card technologies to your Rio Pro to combine your photo ID program with other applications such as access control, time and attendance tracking, debit transacting, and more.
