eMedia CS Software

If you have an Evolis printer, eMedia software is a must. Use eMedia CS to design, encode, and print your PVC ID badges, access cards, gift cards, and loyalty cards. It features a user friendly and WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) design module, efficient connections to existing databases, and a wide range of encoding features. Choose either the Standard or Professional version to get the features you need.

eMedia CS is available in two versions: Standard and Pro

The Standard version offers all features to design and print badges, encode to magnetic stripes and connect to an excel database, while the Pro version offers extra database connectivity, Smart card encoding capabilities, as well as a managed mode and scripting option for easy integration with another application. Both versions run on Windows Vista and 7.

For best results, always use the card design and issuance software that is created by the manufacturer of your plastic card printer.


eMedia software from Evolis is great for designing and printing plastic cards with an Evolis plastic card printer. The Standard version offers numerous basic and imaging features with some design, encoding, printing, and database capabilities included. The Professional version includes a complete set of features that will allow you to complete even the most complex card printing tasks.
