Magicard Rio Pro – A High-Volume Contender
The Rio Pro offers many positive features and can easily be adjusted to maintain higher quality or higher volume card printing, depending on your card print needs.
A Proven Platform – Rio Pro shares the print engine of the Enduro model, a proven card printer workhorse.
Affordable High-Security Options - All Magicard printers offer standard HoloKote security – you choose from four anti-forgery watermark designs and the selected watermark is printed across the entire card surface at no extra cost per card. Rio Pro takes it further, by enabling precise positioning of your customized watermark.
Versatile Card-Stock Options – As with the Enduro, Rio Pro is able to print on both CR80 and CR79 card stock, which allows you to cheaply print adhesive ID cards that you can then peel and stick onto more expensive Access Cards (like HID Clamshell cards). This allows you to reuse these prox cards.
Standard Ethernet Connectivity - For most ID card printers, Ethernet is an add-on feature, but not here. Ethernet is standard with the Rio Pro.
Impressive Three-Year Warranty - Magicard has included a three-year warranty on this printer – that’s among the best in the industry.
The full Rio Pro review was written by ID Expert, Jeramie Ivie. As ID Card Group’s resident Tech Specialist and Custom Card Print Manager, Jeramie literally prints thousands of cards each month for a wide-variety of customers. He has seen it all and offers a practical view of card printers.
