Magicard Ultima Dual Sided Retransfer ID Card Printer Description

With a high-grade processing unit and an impressive array of features, the MagicCard Ultima is the ideal solution for localized or centralized high-volume issuance of secure smart cards.

The MagiCard Ultima comes with all of these superb features:

  • A variety of magnetic stripe, contact, and contactless encoding options based on the most secure standards
  • Advanced HoloTek watermark printing technology with premade and custom designs
  • A user-friendly touch screen interface
  • Cutting edge retransfer printing technology for superior security, durability, and printer longevity.

The Ultima can also print up to 100 full-color ID cards per hour and can interface with any network. The high-resolution printing allows your staff to quickly and confidently verify cardholders.

Intuitive touch screen interface

The Ultima comes with a screen that provides status updates on your print jobs and printing supplies. You can also run diagnostics, view error messages, and issue commands to your printer through the menu.

It makes sure that you’re in full control of your printer’s operation and that you know when to refill printing consumables to minimize interruptions and confusion.

Superior retransfer printing technology

The MagiCard Ultima prints in beautiful and crisp 300 dpi. Instead of printing directly on the card surface, the Ultima prints on the underside of the transparent film, which is then adhered to the card.

The retransfer printing technology is also superior to direct to card printers for a number of reasons:

  • The film acts as an extra layer between the print and outside world, preventing tampering and wear and tear.
  • The printhead doesn’t directly touch the card surface, which means it will last longer.
  • Printing on a film means over-the-edge printing is possible, without leaving an unprinted border.

The Ultima prints in exceptional quality.

Not only will your cards look professional, but even small photos or graphics will be discernible. With dual-sided printing, the film can cover your entire card for even more longevity.

Plug-and-play right into your organization

Out-of-the-box plug-and-play with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux support means your Ultima will slot effortlessly into your office. A backup CD driver is provided to make sure no obstacles stand in the way of setting up your ID card printer. The Ultima comes with standard USB and Ethernet interfaces so that it’s capable of slotting right into any network infrastructure.

Built-in HoloTek Technology for advanced security

This built-in security feature allows watermarks to be printed across your entire card surfaces. With ten standard as well as the ability to create custom watermarks, you can use it for many different situations in your organization. Upgrade your security even further by adding fluorescence under UV light as an extra anti-fraud measure.

MagiCard provides an online delivery portal to design and publish your custom watermarks for easy printing. HoloTek printing requires secure dye film (YMCKS).

Printing speed that keeps up with the fast-paced business world

So that you don’t spend more time refilling consumables or loading and unloading cards, the Ultima comes with a 200 card input hopper and output stacker as well as high-capacity consumables with up to 1,000 prints. When printing single-sided, the Ultima can print up to 180 monochrome or 100 full-color images.

Need specific security encoding? The MagiCard Ultima supports multiple top standards

For magnetic stripe cards, you can specify LoCo or HiCo encoding according to the ISO 7811 JIS2 standards. Contact encoding is also supported according to the ISO 7816 and EMV standards. For a contactless option, you can use MIFARE, DESFire, HiD, iClass, Procx, or Legic encoding. There are also several different smartcard encoding options available for more specific solutions.
