Built for professionals, the Rio Pro’s superior card printing quality is complemented with a full range of options: single or double-sided printing (with field upgrade available), batch or one-off card printing and secure encoding with magnetic stripe, contact and contactless technologies. Built-in Standard HoloKote can also be customised to an individual logo or security design.


The Magicard Rio Pro’s patented HoloKote security technology adds a watermark to the card as it is printed – it requires no additional consumables and can be customised to an individual logo design – enabling true security at no extra cost. Secure encoding options include magnetic stripe, contactless and smart card technologies.


USB and Ethernet interfaces are complemented with a Microsoftcertified plug & play driver. Batch print with the interchangeable 100-card feeder or print one-offs or rewritable cards with the hand-feeder. Upgrade a single-sided Rio Pro to double-sided printing using a simple in-field upgrade kit.


Built for professionals, the Rio Pro’s superior card printing quality is enhanced by ICC profiles that seamlessly map colours between software and the printer. The clear 4-line display provides intelligent user information and interaction.
