Trustech 2017 Review

We are pleased to announce that Trustech 2017 marks the launch of the Rio Pro 360, Magicard’s latest innovation for ID issuance.

Our team on booth H057 are already answering questions and running demonstration on the new addition to the Rio Pro series, but if you’re not able to attend the exhibition this year, here’s everything you need to know.

The Rio Pro 360 is an evolution of Magicard’s well-established Rio Pro platform. The new ID card printer features faster print speed, increased capacity and improved print quality. The 360 also has the all new ‘LYNK’ onboard intelligence – an embedded Linux-based CPU – that enables seamless communication and the secure processing of ID data.

Rio Pro 360The Rio Pro 360 is Magicard’s fastest ID printer to date. The entirely new electronics and software platform has enabled significant performance improvements. From the moment you hit print, the 360 instantaneously gets to work. Full colour cards with HoloKote can now print in 18 seconds click-to-card.

The LYNK onboard CPU has a wider colour spectrum to choose from. This means the Rio Pro 360 can create even more vibrant and colour rich prints – which on an ID card means a truer representation of the subject. LYNK recognises USB & Ethernet and can easily be integrated with most third-party applications locally or in the cloud. WiFi connectivity will soon be available.

Like its predecessor, the Rio Pro 360 can print an anti-fraud customised secure watermark on every card. LYNK now enables the secure online delivery of bespoke HoloKote watermarks to the printer.  Where previously only one custom HoloKote design was available per printer, now users can store up to ten.

Magicard’s Technical Director Andy Cornelius, said:

“The 360 is everything users love about the original Rio Pro but with significant enhancements in speed, print quality and connectivity.

“The LYNK onboard CPU is a first for the industry and we’re really excited to see how this helps our customers provide more secure ID solutions, it effectively means the printer has a brain onboard. The 360, with its encryption capabilities and secure watermark feature, helps us achieve our mission of enhancing trust in identity Worldwide.”
