Star Micronics, one of the worlds largest printer manufacturers, today announces the worldwide launch of its pioneering thermal receipt printer, the TSP100 futurePRNT. Designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications, the TSP100 redefines the extent of Stars large printer portfolio by not only setting new standards in point-of-sale printing but also introducing features unseen to date in this marketplace.
The TSP100, a full speed low cost USB printer, reflects the expertise and attention to detail devoted to product design that is synonymous with Star. This unique, feature-rich printer not only provides high performance and reliability as standard but also a number of distinct features at no extra cost.
Revolutionising point-of-sale printer technology, Star has designed a printer that is capable of printing receipts at an exceptional throughput speed regardless of font used or whether graphics are included. As a result, users can now truly take advantage of modern TrueTypeTM fonts and not lose print speed. In fact, a new standard to measure print speed has now been set which more realistically reflects the true output speed. Based on this measurement, the TSP100 is the first printer in the industry to print TrueType fonts and graphics at the same speed as internal fonts.
With all accessories and software included in one box, the TSP100 represents a high quality point-of-sale printer offering exceptional value for money. In addition to providing intuitive compatibility for Microsoft applications including Java-POSTM and OPOSTM with Microsoft certification (WHQL), all printer features are available from the printers properties page in WindowsTM thus enabling all settings to be stored on the PC and easily mirrored across other TSP100 printers in the case of mass system installations. Marketing tools that enable receipts to be simply and effectively re-designed and coupons to be created based on pre-decided trigger words and values, without the need for expensive software changes, further highlight both the sophistication and complete versatility of the TSP100.
Annette Tarlton, Marketing Manager EMEA, Star Micronics, comments, Star Micronics is redefining point-of-sale printing technology with the TSP100. Setting new standards through innovative design while at the same time maintaining low cost, Star has developed a printer that takes point-of-sale printing to a completely new level.
