LYNK intelligence

This is a printer with intelligence. The Rio Pro 360 is the first desktop ID card printer with an embedded Linux-based CPU.
This enables seamless communication and the secure processing of ID data – just imagine it’s got a brain onboard.

 


Optimised intelligence

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

The LYNK onboard CPU has a wider colour spectrum to choose from. Printing is even more vibrant and colour rich – which on an ID card means a truer representation of the subject.


Secure intelligence

Like its predecessor, the Rio Pro 360 can print an anti-fraud customised watermark on every card. LYNK now enables the secure online delivery of bespoke HoloKote® watermarks to the printer.

Where previously only one design was available per printer, now users can store up to ten.


Connectivity intelligence

LYNK recognises USB and Ethernet and can easily be integrated with most third-party applications locally or in the cloud.


Versatile intelligence

The state-of-the-art Rio Pro 360 is a cost-effective way to create secure ID cards in high volumes.
The choice of 100 or 200 input card hoppers provides users with the opportunity to batch print large number of cards in one go.
