Magicard Rio Pro Single-Sided ID Card Printer

MSRP: $3295 each

Custom Magicard Holokote™ anti-cloning protection now included FREE with the purchase of Magicard’s Rio Pro ID card printer exclusively from Advantidge!

Magicard Custom HoloKote prints your custom graphic into the overlay panel during the normal ID card printing cycle, providing anti-counterfeit protection to your plastic ID cards. Custom HoloKote repeats your custom watermark in a frosted image that is invisible when viewed normally, but when flexed or held at an angle in direct light becomes clearly visible.

Your custom Holokote image is encrypted and electronically stored on a special order data CD and key card set that is loaded to the firmware of your ID card printer via a connected PC, and the key card inserted into a slot in the ID card printer allows the specified printer to produce the watermark on the ID badge during the normal print cycle. When Magicard HoloKote is used with HoloPatch ID cards, one area of the HoloKote watermark can be highlighted as a highly-visible gold seal on your card.

With all of the features of the Rio2e plus more, the Magicard Rio Pro is a secure ID card printer with powerful capabilities. Built for professionals, the Rio Pro’s superior ID card printing quality is complemented with a full range of options: single or double-sided printing (with field upgrade available), batch or one-off ID card printing and secure encoding with magnetic stripe, contact and contactless smartcard technologies.

The Magicard Rio Pro delivers in both security and performance, producing edge-to-edge high-resolution color ID cards with superior print quality, enabled by ICC profiles, and with Magicard’s built-in Standard HoloKote® watermark, an individual logo or security design can be customized for additional card security. The Magicard Rio Pro is the perfect ID card printer for high speed printing of secure ID cards and badges.
