Magicard Rio Pro Features
Rio Pro is Easy to Use
Magicard Rio Pro comes with USB and Ethernet interfaces which are complemented with a Microsoftcertified plug & play driver. This card printer can batch-print your ID cards with the interchangeable 100-card feeder, or print one-offs or rewritable cards with the hand-feeder. Built for professionals, the Rio Pro’s superior card printing quality is enhanced by ICC profiles that seamlessly map colors between software and the printer. The clear 4-line display provides intelligent user information and interaction.

Rio Pro is Flexible
Magicard Rio Pro is available in single or double-sided printing versions. Its flexible design can upgrade a single-sided Rio Pro to double-sided with a simple field upgrade kit that anyone can use. So, you don’t have to commit to buying a dual-sided printer if you don’t need one yet. You can also choose from various encoding options, including contact, contactless, combi and magnetic stripe.
