Magicard Ultima Single Sided Retransfer ID Card Printer Description

A high-grade processing unit and an impressive array of features make the MagicCard Ultima the ideal solution for the localized or centralized issuance for high-volumes of secure smart cards.

Other advanced features include secure HoloKote watermark printing with ten standard or custom designs. This technology can exploit the wavelengths in the dye film to fluoresce under UV as an added authentication measure. Use custom designs to distinguish cards for different departments or access levels in your organization.

Despite this, an intuitive touch screen interface makes it an accessible ID car printer to use. View updates on your print jobs or printing supplies to make sure things keep ticking over.

Advanced, user-friendly touch screen

Gone are the days where you have to guess what’s going on inside your printer or interact with it indirectly through the computer. With an intuitive touch screen, it’s never been easier to get updates on your print jobs or consumables, run diagnostics, use the menu, and more.

Retransfer printing for enhanced security and durability

Retransfer, or reverse transfer, printing works by first printing your graphics on a clear film and then bonding that film to your card, image side down. That protects the image under a protective layer, making it harder to alter and giving it extra staying power.

Not only will your cards last longer, but your printer too. The printhead never comes into contact with the card surface, eliminating wear and tear. Unlike conventional ID card printers, it offers better print quality, true over-the-edge printing, and effortlessly prints on uneven surfaces.

Expect crisp detail and photo-realistic quality with 300 dpi resolution.

Effortlessly integrates into your work environment

From the get-go, you won’t have any trouble setting up your Ultima as it comes with out-of-the-box plug-and-play. With both USB and Ethernet connectivity and support for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, the Ultima is supported by just about any network environment. A driver CD is provided for offline networks or if you have any troubles.

Up your security with HoloKote watermark technology

The Ultima comes with built-in HoloKote watermark security. You can print standard or custom watermarks over the entire card surface as an added security and anti-fraud measure. You can even exploit the wavelengths of the film to fluoresce under UV light to take it one step further.

Pick from the ten standard watermarks provided for free or design your own custom watermarks through the easy-to-use and secure online delivery method.

Print up to 180 monochrome cards per hour

By printing up to 180 monochrome and 100 full-color cards per hour, the Ultima can keep up with your needs. That’s up to one card every 20 seconds. A 200 card input hopper and 200 card output stacker allows you to print bigger batches, freeing you up to focus on other things. The same goes for its high capacity consumables that can contain up to 1000 prints. This makes the Ultima ideal for high-volume localized or centralized issuance of secure smart cards.

Additional encoding options and upgrades

Whatever your business’ ID card printing requirements, the Ultima can provide. The following encoding options are all supported:

  • Magnetic stripe: Specify LoCo or ISO 7811 JIS2 HiCo encoding for your cards.
  • Contact chip: Encode your cards with ISO 7816 or EMV contact chip encoding.
  • Contactless chip: MIFARE, DESFire, HiD iClass, Prox, and Legic encoding are all supported.

You can also upgrade your Ultima to be capable of dual-sided printing with any combination of the above encoding.

After-sales support that instills confidence

Printers sometimes fail. Should your Ultima run into any issues, you’ll be covered by a 3-year (or 250,000 panel) MagicCoverPlus warranty. This covers bad workmanship as well as any electronic failure. To ensure your business operations aren’t interrupted, a loan printer will be provided if Technical Support can’t immediately fix it.
