Product Description


*** Discontinued *** The Magicard Rio 2e is a high security colour printer for all single sided CR80 ID card applications. It offers superb, high quality, edge-to-edge, high speed printing, on-screen printer status and extremely fast downloads via the built-in parallel, USB and Ethernet interface ports. Using full colour five panel (YMCKO) dye film, the Magicard Rio 2 can download and print a full card image in less than 20 seconds, giving a true 180 cards per hour throughput. The Magicard Rio is built for heavy duty usage and is ideal for both batch printing and occasional issue applications. For extra security, the Holokote Key option prints a customer specific graphics and text watermark into the card overcoat across the entire face of the card. The Holokote Key can also be used to lock the printer, preventing unauthorised use of the printer.

Reasons To Buy 1. ID card security without the cost The Holokote watermark available only on Magicard printers, is the most economical visual security for ID cards. It costs nothing extra to print, unlike expensive holographic laminates. For highest security, a custom watermark can be printed when a low cost Custom Key is specified. 2. Magicard 2 year UltraCoverPlus warranty 2 years of free factory warranty service and parts is included with every new Rio 2e printer. Up to 2 additional years can be purchased. A free loan printer is available in the event a service center repair is required. (North America, EU, and selected other countries only). Competitors can charge several hundred dollars for a similar warranty. 3. Easier interfacing With built-in USB, Ethernet and Parallel interfaces, the Rio 2e can be used in all situations. The new graphical Plug & Play Driver makes installation and printer operation easy. 4. Robust & reliable The Magicard Rio 2e has a metal print engine construction for long-term robustness, and to ensure consistent card print quality. 5. Fast printing For effective batch printing, the single-sided Magicard Rio 2e is among the fastest desktop ID card printers available. 6. Encoding in the printer Many Contactless (proximity) card encoding options are available, as well as Contact Chip, Magnetic Stripe and barcodes.
