Star Micronics announces first Apple Certified AirPrint POS printer
Star Micronics has received certification for the first Apple AirPrint POS printer, the new Star TSP654II AirPrint, according to a press release. This printer is the first 80 and 58mm receipt and ticket POS printer on the market to be Apple AirPrint certified.
AirPrint provides mobile printing solutions for Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod and MacBook users on any private network with the objective of being able to wirelessly print via the customer's network without installing specific printer drivers. With AirPrint support pre-installed on iOS devices, the user is able to connect to and print from the required printer.
Traditionally, AirPrint has been the domain of wider output inkjet and laser printers for business and personal use, but Apple has now confirmed its place in the POS retail and hospitality sectors with its certification of the first AirPrint receipt and ticket printer from Star.
Star's TSP654II meets the requirements of the first Apple AirPrint printer due to its 300mm/second print speed, 203 dpi print output, compact footprint and aesthetic design. Furthermore, the printer can be used in vertical or horizontal mode and includes a wall mount bracket in the box as standard.
Available in charcoal black or ultra-white casing, the printer matches the Star CB2002 cash drawer options while easy paper loading and the splash proof cover option further enhance the features of the TSP654II AirPrint.
