Card encoding enables you to add secure data and information onto proximity cards, smart cards & magnetic stripes. Choose from Mag Stripe, Contact chip, Contactless & Combi encoding.
Incorporating an encoding option within a Magicard ID card printer enables it to securely write data and information to the ID card during the printing process, thereby augmenting the printed visual security. With magnetic stripe cards, this data is written to the magnetic strip, usually on the reverse of the card. With smart cards, this information is written directly to the memory chip on the card, either through physical contact with the chip or contactlessly via an antenna in the encoding device and within the smartcard itself. Magicard printers support all types of encoding devices.
