As well as standard ID cards, eMedia CS2 has the ability to design and print the following types of card:

  • Identification badges
  • Security and Access Control badges
  • Transit passes
  • Membership cards
  • Customer Loyalty cards
  • Bank and Payment cards
  • Official Documents

eMedia is also capable of more complex features beyond card design such as:

  • Encoding magnetic strips, Smart Cards and Contactless Smart Cards
  • Print out data contained in your own databases
  • Print out calculated data
  • Store information that relates to the cards printouts and the program usage in a database or in a log file
  • Print in a single pass on cards: texts, images, barcodes, the holder’s picture acquired from any Twain / WIA camera or webcam

The software is split into 2 main modes:

Design-mode In design mode, the card template can be created and edited. This mode is used by the card creator and allows them to design a card which incorporates all the images, text and functions that might be required.

The operating mode allows the user to enter the data that must be printed on the card or entered in the database linked to the card, and/or to be encoded. The information, defined in the card template, will be entered from a specific input window dedicated to this usage. This mode will be used by those responsible for the physical card printing, using the templates defined by the designer.

There is also a third, more advanced mode: COM Server mode (Component Object Model) which allows a third-party program the ability to print and encode plastic cards, using eMedia-Cards CS as an expansion module. This mode is intended to be used by an application developer or solutions integrator. It allows the printout and encoding of plastic cards from a template defined in design mode using the third party program.
