Lantronix Demonstrates Easy Plug-and-Print Solution for iPad and Apple iOS Devices at Digital Experience 2012
New xPrintServer Enables Wireless Printing to Networked Printers;
Easy-to-Use, Requires no Configuration or Additional Software
LAS VEGAS – January 9, 2012 – Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart connectivity solutions, today announced it is showcasing its new xPrintServer at Digital Experience on January 9, 2012, the evening prior to the 2012 International CES in Las Vegas. With more than 900 editors and members of the press in attendance, Digital Experience is the nation’s largest technology media event.
The xPrintServer is 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. Lantronix will provide the first live public demonstration of the xPrintServer in action – enabling iPad and other iOS users to print directly from their iOS devices during the event.
“We are very pleased to see the positive response from the market on our xPrintServer,” said Kurt Busch, president and CEO for Lantronix. “It’s clear we are filling a much needed gap in the Apple ecosystem, and we look forward to the first live demonstration at Digital Experience.”
The xPrintServer, roughly the size of an iPhone, is an easy-to-use hardware solution that utilizes 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.
The xPrintServer currently supports thousands of networked printer models from leading printer families including HP, Brother, Epson, Canon, Dell, Lexmark, and Xerox. As new printer brands and printer models become available, Lantronix will post updates on www.Lantronix.com.
