Rio Pro Secure card printer

Featuring locking input and output hoppers and fitted with inline magnetic stripe and EMV chip encoders, the Rio Pro Secure is ideal for the desktop personalisation of pre-printed financial cards.

Electronic data can be written to the card in line with the printing of customer and account details. A secure watermark can also be printed on the surface of the card featuring a specific security design or the issuing organization’s logo.

Secure your localised credential issuance

The Magicard Rio Pro Secure features an opaque, lockable input hopper to secure blank cards. A secondary lock prevents the printer from being opened by unauthorised personnel and secures the opaque output stacker hopper. A locking port designed into the base attaches the issuance station to any fixed location.

Print secure custom watermark on your id cards

Your company logo as a card security feature

Included with all Magicard printers, HoloKote® is patented technology that frosts a secure watermark onto the card’s surface during printing. The Magicard Rio Pro Secure offers the option of customising this watermark to your organisation’s unique logo or security design.

Trusted electronic security

The Magicard Rio Pro Secure can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE®, DESFire® and iClass®. Specialist high-security encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the inline personalisation of payment cards. The Rio Pro Secure can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.

Full ICC color ID cards support

Vibrant colours in every print

The Magicard Rio Pro Secure uses colour profiles determined by International Colour Consortium (ICC) to ensure that the image you see on screen is the one you hold in your hands after it is printed. The easy-to-use driver interface also enables you to fine-tune colours to get an exact match for your corporate identity.
