Apple iOS Devices
New ‘Plug-and-Print’ Solution Enables iOS Device Printing for
Businesses and Consumers with Networked Printers
2012 International CES
LONDON -- December 13, 2011
Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq:LTRX), a leading global provider of smart connectivity
solutions, today announced the launch of its new patent-pending xPrintServer™,
the first Apple iOS® print server compatible with the iPad®2, iPad, iPhone®,
iPod® touch, and virtually any device running Apple’s iOS mobile operating
system. The xPrintServer is available for pre-ordering now
atstore.Lantronix.com. The product will begin shipping in the first calendar
quarter of 2012, and will also be available on Amazon, NewEgg, Buy.com, and
MacMall websites. Lantronix will be showcasing the xPrintServer at Digital
Experience on January 9, 2012, the evening prior to the 2012 International CES
in Las Vegas.
The xPrintServer, roughly the size of an iPhone, is an easy-to-use hardware
solution that utilises the iOS native print menu and requires no additional
applications, software downloads, or printer driver installations. With
automatic printer discovery and no configuration, printing is easy and
hassle-free. Simply open the box, plug the xPrintServer anywhere into the
network, and print wirelessly from any iOS device running iOS version 4.2 or
later, to virtually any network-connected printer.
Current market estimates peg iPad users at more than 73 million around the
world today, with more than 50 percent using the device for business purposes.
With more than 900 million iPads forecasted to be deployed globally by 2015,
the xPrintServer is designed to close the loop on the missing print function
for driving business usage and productivity for the iPad and iPhone community
in office settings.
The xPrintServer currently supports thousands of printer models from leading
printer families including HP, Brother, Epson, Canon, Dell, Lexmark, and
Xerox. In addition to in-house testing at Lantronix and third-party testing,
validation was conducted by QualityLogic, Inc., a provider of software quality
test tools and testing services for printer and printer-related companies
including HP, Canon, Dell, Microsoft, Adobe, IBM, Cisco, AT&T and many more
companies. As new printer brands and printer models become available,
Lantronix will post updates onwww.Lantronix.com.
“The xPrintServer embodies our goal of leveraging Lantronix technology to
serve the needs of today’s growing markets,” said Kurt Busch, president and
CEO for Lantronix. “The proliferation of iPads and iPhones in the corporate
world has yielded a potentially tremendous opportunity for providing an easy
printing solution for enterprise-class printers, free of hassles associated
with today’s work-around solutions. Printing in a corporate environment is a
necessity, and with more than 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies slated to
deploy iPads by the end of 2011, this is an ideal time to expand into this
