More Information

Offering reverse transfer printing with built-in visual security, the Magicard Ultima ID card printer is a powerful addition to the Magicard line of printers. With its quick print speeds, large 200-card hopper, high yield 1,000 print ribbons and an easy-to-use touch screen interface, this printer is ideal for large organisations looking for efficient card printing.

Ultima enables you to print up to 100 high definition full colour cards per hour. The quality of print means staff can quickly and easily identify the facial features on ID cards for comparison against the holder. This makes it the ideal solution for drivers’ licences, national ID cards and other cards where security is paramount.

The Ultima retransfer printer comes with built-in visual security via the use of up to 10 secure HoloKote® watermarks. That means that if you choose to do so, you can distinguish different departments with a separate holographic design. For additional built-in security, Ultima exploits the wavelengths of the dye-film so it can fluoresce under UV lighting.

High capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers, combined with a range of encoding options to write secure electronic data to the card, make the Ultima ideal for high volume localised or centralised issuance of secure smart cards.

* The free ID Card software is eMedia starter which is only compatible with Windows machines and is limited to single side printing with 100 records database. Upgrades can be purchased at anytime.
